    doughnut holes in a thick fruit syrup. Does anyone know the name of this

    It sounds like a non-alcoholic version of baba au rhum.

    Hmm... I was going to say that. First thing that popped into my mind.
    IIRC, however, the babas are yeast-based cakes. Perhaps these are not. Or
    maybe I'm wrong.

    Sorry it took so long to respond, but I think this is what you're talking
    about:

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gulab_jamun

    At the bottom of the article there are links to recipes; there's also a
    recipe for gulab jamun in one of the Vegetarian Epicure books, but I don't
    remember which one (and I'm not home at the moment to check).
