  • Summary

    Bomboloni—small round Italian doughnuts—is almost as much fun to say as they are to eat. It's like a party in your mouth when you repeat the word, which you will be doing over and over between bites of these balloon-light spheres of the tenderest yeast dough. Bomboloni are the new hot item on restaurant menus these days, and you'll instantly understand why when you taste your first. It won't be your last, that's for sure, which is why we've accompanied them with three different sauces for dipping. Each is delightful on its own, but if you want to go all the way with all three, you'll find they play well together, too.

    Ingredients

    • 3/4 teaspoon active dry yeast (from a 1/4-ounce package)
    • 6 tablespoons warm whole milk (105-115°F)
    • 1 cup plus 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour, plus more for dusting
    • 1 large egg
    • 1 1/2 tablespoons unsalted butter, softened
    • 1 1/2 tablespoons sugar
    • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
    • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
    • 1/4 teaspoon salt
    • About 2 quarts vegetable oil for frying
    • Chocolate Espresso, Whisky Caramel, and/or Clementine Sauces
    • A stand mixer with paddle attachment; a deep-fry/candy thermometer
