Everyone probably has this recipe, or at least a version of it, just thought I would pass along mine for all to try our at least compare. I sometimes also add a Tsp. of lemon zest or Almond extract if I think about it or want something different.
Cake Donuts (Old Fashioned Style)
2 c. flour
½ c. sugar
1 tsp. salt
1 Tbs. baking powder
½ tsp. cinnamon
1 tsp. vanilla
2 Tbs. butter or margarine, softened
½ c. milk
1 egg, beaten
Heat oil. Heat about 1 – 2 inches oil in a large skillet over medium heat, or heat 2-3 inches of oil in a large Dutch oven. The oil needs to register 375°F before you begin frying. Use a candy thermometer or an electric thermometer that can be attached to the pan to measure temperature while frying. Oil must stay hot to keep donuts from getting too greasy.
Sift then combine all dry ingredients; Add butter or margarine and mix well, combine egg and milk and mix well, then slowly add to flour mixture; mix and put out on floured surface, roll out to ½ to 1” thickness. (I personally use about ¾ inch) Cut out with Biscuit cutter, then cut hole with a Lipstick tube, that has been well cleaned and dipped in butter.   Fry 2-3 donuts at a time, flipping half way through the cooking process, place on absorbent towel or paper towels to drain well, Ica as regular donuts.

mtgraham2-You have such great and such a variety of recipes. I haven't made donuts at home. This looks easy. I always wondered what to do with old clean lipstick tubes-now I know-make donuts!

I love donuts! I have two favorites.. Krispy Kreme glazed and almost any donut at J and Company. (Found that one in Singapore.) I'll have to try making my own. Thanks for the recipe!

About Me
I have been cooking since i was 12 years old, got my first job in a restaurant when I was 14. I was trained by a professional Cook, also my Mother and Grandmother who had deep roots in the country style as well as the Pennsylvania Dutch Cooking.
My favorite things to cook
All though I can cook almost anything, my favorite thing to cook is breads. I have making homemade breads, rolls and baked goods since I was 18 and I am now 50!
My favorite family cooking traditions
Almost all of my Family Recipes center around Country Cooking, with a Dutch flare, or style. My family all comes from the deep country where you cooked what you raised.
My cooking triumphs
I once prepared and served a Banquet for President Bill Clinton when he was Governor of Arkansas. Multiple Blue Ribbons at the Arkansas State Fair as well as the Arkansas-Oklahoma State Fair.
My cooking tragedies
Once cooked a Standing Rib Roast that was so tough you needed a Skill Saw to slice it and it was already on the table.
