DirectionsMix together all ingredients in order given, mixing well after each addition.Roll dough out on floured surface about 1/3 to 1/2 inch thick. Cut our with donut cutter that has been floured. Remove excess dough to re-roll out and cut. Let the donuts rest about 15 -20 minutes before cooking.Heat oil to 375 degrees.
Use a spatula to transfer resting donuts to the hot oil. Do not crowd the donuts as you want them to stay in shape, cook properly and turn over easily. When the donuts float to the surface of the oil, turn them over and cook about 2-3 minutes or until a beautiful golden brown.
Using a slotted spoon, transfer to paper towel lined plate. Repeat until done.
Cook the donut holes the same way...*** Dust with powdered sugar, cinnamon sugar, frosting and sprinkles... Fun project with the kids.*** If you are in a hurry, don't roll the dough out, just use a teaspoon to spoon out a bit of dough and place in hot oil.... Good either way!
