  • 4 cups of soft flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 1/4 cups granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla essence
  • 2/3 cup milk
  • 1/4 cup butter, melted
  • vegetable oil or shortening for deep-frying


  • In a mixing bowl combine flour, baking powder, and salt; set aside. In another mixing bowl combine eggs, sugar, and vanilla. Beat the mixture till it is thick. In a small bowl combine milk and melted butter.
  • Add the flour mixture and milk mixture alternately to the egg mixture, beating on low speed after each addition just until combined.
  • On a well-floured surface, roll the dough to 1/2-inch thickness. Do not stir additional flour into the dough; this can cause the finished product to be heavy and dry.
  • Use a floured 2-1/2-inch doughnut cutter to cut the dough into rings. Dip the cutter into flour between cuts to prevent the dough from sticking to the cutter. Each cut should produce one doughnut and one doughnut hole.
  • Reroll dough scraps as necessary to make about 16 doughnuts and 16 doughnut holes
  • In a heavy, deep large saucepan, heat the oil
  • Ease a doughnut into the heated oil with a long-handle slotted spoon, taking care not to let the oil spatter. Fry the doughnuts, two or three at a time, in the oil for 2 to 3 minutes or until they are golden brown, turning once.
  • Remove the doughnuts with the slotted spoon, allowing excess oil to drain back into the fryer or pan.
  • Drain the doughnuts on paper towels.
  • Repeat with remaining doughnuts.
  • Cool the doughnuts slightly

Serve and enjoy with your people
