If you're ever randomly craving donut holes, you're in luck. You may be able to indulge in them without even leaving your house — as long as you have a pair of key ingredients on hand. As it turns out, there's a super easy way to whip up fresh, homemade donut holes with just two basic ingredients: self-rising flour and whole milk yogurt.

Here's what you do: In a mixing bowl, combine 1 ½ cups of self-rising flour and 1 cup of plain whole milk yogurt (or Greek yogurt). If you don't have self-rising flour, you can substitute that with 1 ½ cups of standard all-purpose flour with 1 ½ teaspoons of baking powder added.

Then, fill a pot with oil (up to about 2 inches) and bring the temperature to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Next, you'll need to drop in the balls of dough, which should be the size of about 1 tablespoon. You can do this either by using a piping bag and cutting off pieces or by using a spoon and your hand to break off pieces. Fry the donut holes for two to three minutes or until they are golden brown.

There are plenty of ways to upgrade these delicious two-ingredient donut holes to make them even more tasty — they just require extra components. Luckily, many of these ingredients are likely already in your kitchen. For example, you can add a cinnamon-sugar coating by simply rolling the hot donut holes in a half-cinnamon, half-sugar mixture. Additionally, an easy donut glaze can be made using just powdered sugar, milk, and vanilla extract with a pinch of salt — all of which are household ingredients that you're likely to already have available.

You could also drizzle store-bought chocolate sauce over the top — or, if the amount of ingredients is not an issue, you can whip up a homemade hot fudge sauce. Whipped cream is also a perfect companion for these donut holes. You can either put a small dollop on each hole or use the whipped cream for dipping.

If you want extra flavor but want to stick to just two ingredients, then you can try using flavored yogurt for the recipe. Strawberry, raspberry, or lemon are all flavors that you can easily find in yogurt form that would taste delicious as donuts. Even a vanilla yogurt or honey yogurt would add some extra flavor and complexity to these easy, two-ingredient donut holes.
