As Pass the Sushi continues to grow, I get to learn so many new things and meet new people and build friendships. I had a fun first last Friday, when this doughnut holes recipe was featured on Chef Dennis’ blog, Ask Chef Dennis.

Chef Dennis is a great guy, always posting beautiful recipes as well as really helpful articles with tips and tricks for food sites and other topics that are important to us food bloggers. Every Friday, he showcases another blogger with his Guest Post Friday, which I can say from experience is so much fun!

It’s great to see all the nice comments people leave for each guest. Not to mention, he seems to be holding up a goal I tried setting for myself this year, which is to incorporate more fish into his diet (both jealous and motivated). Please go over to his site and have a look around.

These look lovely!! I have a few questions and i'll apologise first for the bombarding ): PS i've only recently started to bake and cook since i have a long break from school, hence the amateurish questions!

1. how many doughnuts does this recipe make? I've searched through the comments and couldn't find it! (Sorry if i missed it, hope you could enlighten me, thanks :) )

2. is this: "Meanwhile, in a small saucepan, combine the remaining 2/3 cup granulated sugar with ¼ cup water. Bring to a boil and cook, undisturbed, until amber, about 5 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in the cream. Stir in the almond extract and the remaining 3 tablespoons butter and ¾ teaspoon salt." the almond caramel sauce?

3. How would the taste be affected if i left out the grinded almonds in the flour mixture?

4. Can i use olive oil instead of veg oil?

Thank you so much and once again, sorry for the lengthy comment! PS really enjoy your food photos they just look so good :)

I don't mind long comments at all. But I'll be honest, I can not remember how many doughnuts this recipe made. I know it was at least 12, but I can't remember it if made more than that or not. >< Sorry! Yep, the meanwhile ingredients are the almond sauce. You can choose to omit the almonds from the dough, however you may have to substitute more flour to make up for it. (I would start with 1/3 cup flour and see how tacky the dough looked/felt before adding any additional). And I do not recommend substituting olive oil for vegetable oil when frying. This is a pretty decent recipe for someone who is new to baking and cooking. If this one doesn't turn out for you, there are a few other doughnut recipes on here too that may be a bit easier. Let me know how these turn out :)
