Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  •   In a large bowl mix together the mochiko, flour, vanilla sugar, eggs, milk, baking powder and vanilla.  Set aside.

  • Heat the oil in a large skillet or home fryer

  • Drop by the tablespoon into the hot oil.  They will expand a lot.   Also the mochiko makes the batter very pull-y and sticky so try your best to keep it formed into nice round shapes.

  • Once the dough pops up and floats, fry until golden brown, a few minutes on each side.

  • Drain them on a wire rack

  • While still hot, roll the donuts in the cinnamon sugar mixture.

  • The only thing you will have to make ahead is the vanilla sugar.  Scrape and bury a vanilla bean into two cups of sugar.  Keep in an airtight container until you are ready to use.
