Featured Pinch Tips Video
Mix Eggs,Sugar,Salt,Cream of Tartar,Spices,and Vanilla and oil.
Mix in a Large Bowl, (I myself add a touch more for stronger spice flavor especially the Nutmeg)
Place 2 Tablespoons of Apple Cider Vinegar and the Baking Soda into the Whole Milk.
Stir, let stand 3 minutes, fold into Bowl #1
Then add 1-2 cups of Flour at a time,Be Gentle and turn the flour into the mixture, so as not to make a Tough Doughnut, remember these are Special and need TLC so to achieve the Yum Factor !
Start heating up Oil (Vegetable Oil but use what you prefer- 2 Bottles approx.)and then start rolling out the Dough , be sure it's chilled and Flour your surface and doughnut cutter and hands too. Roll out the Dough about to 1/2 inch thick or little less (save the little wholes for the kids and the big kids) and deep fry them in a fryer( electric fryers are a good choice for first timers, heat settings will be easier) or I use a "deep" cast Iron Kettle which I prefer, till Golden brown they will need to be flipped so watch carefully, keep a eye on the Grand Kids Oil will be Hot. Should yield: Approx. 4 Dozen Doughnuts (depends, on size and thickness)
