Canadians eat over 1 billion doughnuts a year – which wont surprise if you’ve driven through any major Canadian city as there is a doughnut shop on almost every city block.

The most popular of which is Tim Hortons – a household name for certain! If you’re Canadian, you have no doubt been through a Tim Horton’s drive-thru, tasted a double-double, known someone who has worked at Tim Hortons, and probably ordered at least one box of Timbits.

These classic doughnut holes come in chocolate, powdered sugar, honey dip, old fashioned, and more, and they are a staple of Canadian culture.


Makes 24

How to Make Timbits:

  1. Mix all dry ingredients in a large bowl.
  2. Add melted butter and buttermilk and mix with a wooden spoon until you have a thick batter. Set aside
  3. Heat a deep fryer to 350F. Slowly drop in balls of batter using 2 spoons or a scoop and let them rise to the surface. Fry for 2 minutes, stirring and flipping occasionally. Scoop out and blot on paper towel to remove some of the oil
  4. While warm, roll in sugar
