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
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.
2 Tbs. butter or margarine, softened
½ c. milk
1 egg, beaten
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.
