Breakfast Buttons – Reminiscent of the Chocolate Chip Donuts That I Adored When Growing Up

Every time my mom and dad go back to Indiana, I beg them to bring back the chocolate chip donuts from Horst’s Little Bakery Haus.  I have been eating the same donuts since I was in 9th grade and would walk over to Dieken’s Bakery every morning before school.  (Horst actually worked for Mr. Dieken and started Horst’s after Mr. Dieken retired)  Needless to say these are the donuts that ruined it for all other donuts.  Nothing ever compared until I found these Breakfast Buttons.

1 Egg
1/4 of a cup of Sugar
1/2 a cup of Boiling Milk
1 cup of Flour
1 teaspoon of Baking Soda
Pinch of Salt
1 can of Vanilla Icing
Toppings of your choice
Step by Step:
In a large mixing bowl, mix together egg, sugar, flour, baking soda, and salt.
Bring 1/2 a cup of milk to a boil and add to mixture.

Knead mixture until well mixed.

Place flour on cutting board and hands.
Roll dough into about 1/2 inch balls and flatten. Flour both sides.

In a large skillet heat up oil on high heat and then reduce to low heat.
Place flat pastry into oil, flipping occasionally until lightly golden on both sides.

Let cool.
Put icing on each breakfast button and top with toppings of your choice.

Serve and enjoy!
