Cinnamon Sugar Doughnut Holes

I am overdue on posting this recipe that Grandma Sakamoto and I made when Nick and I visited her in Vegas. Grandma Saki shared this recipe with me, it was simple and delicious. I personally wanted to post it so that I could easily access it for future batches.

1/2 cup sugar
1 tsp ground cinnamon
 1 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/8 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp ground cinnamon
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 cup sugar
2 Tbsp unsalted butter, melted but not hot
1 large egg
1/3 cup buttermilk
Vegetable oil for frying

1. Combine 1/2 cup sugar with 1 tsp cinnamon on a plate, set aside.
2. In a medium bowl, combine and mix flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, and salt. 
3. In a large bowl, whisk together 1/2 cup sugar and butter. Whisk in egg and then buttermilk until smooth. Gently stir in dry ingredients with a spatula to form soft, pliable dough. Cover with plastic and refrigerate for at least 60 minutes and up to overnight.
4. When ready to fry, heat 1 inch of oil in a pot or heavy skillet to 325 degrees. Meanwhile, use a rounded teaspoon measure to scoop all of the dough into balls. Working in batches, drop dough balls into hot oil. Fry until golden brown on one side, 1 to 2 minutes. Flip and continue to fry until golden on remaining side, another 1 to 2 minutes.
 5. Drain all doughnut holes on a brown paper bag, ad quickly dredge in cinnamon sugar plate mixture, serving warm or at room temperature. Enjoy!
