Let’s get started!

  1. In a glass measuring cup, mix warm milk, yeast and sugar. Allow to sit for 10 minutes to activate.
  2. Pour the mixture into a large bowl, and then mix in egg yolks, vanilla bean, butter and almond extract.
  3. Slowly mix in flour, and then add salt half way through adding the flour.
  4. Once all the flour is mixed in, knead for a few minutes.
  5. Place dough into a greased bowl and allow to sit until it has doubled in size.
  6. On a floured surface, gently form dough into a disc.
  7. Use a circular cutter to cut out donut holes. Cover the donut holes with a towel and let them rest for 10 minutes.
  8. Push your finger into the center of each donut hole and gather the edges, pinching them into a flat seam (PICTURE at 3:42).
  9. Heat oil to 350ºF, keeping track of the temperature with a candy thermometer.
  10. Fry the donut holes a few minutes on each side and then move to a paper towel-lined baking sheet. Immediately toss each donut hole in red sugar.

Pistachio Pudding

  1. Sift out the pistachio nuts from instant pudding mix.
  2. In a medium bowl, combine sifted pudding mix with 1 cup of milk. Whisk together until well combined.
  3. Scoop pudding into a decorating bag fitted with a basket weave tip. Fill each donut hole with pudding (PICTURE at 5:03).
  4. TaDa! Enjoy these yummy Donut Eyeholes! But you gotta be careful Morty. If Eyehole man catches you with a box of his Eyeholes, he’ll come bursting through a window and fight you, but it’s worth the risk! They melt in your mouth Morty! They’re delicious!
