"Really quick and easy donuts made from ingredients you probably already have. My 3 year old loves these because he can have them whenever he wants. There's hardly any waiting time. Use any topping you want. Our favorite is powdered sugar!"

  1. Stir the vinegar into the milk, and let stand for a few minutes until thick.
  2. In a medium bowl, cream together the shortening and sugar until smooth. Beat in the egg and vanilla until well blended. Sift together the flour, baking soda, and salt; stir into the sugar mixture alternating with the vinegar and milk. Roll dough out on a floured surface to 1/3 inch thickness. Cut into doughnuts using a donut cutter. Let stand for about 10 minutes.
  3. Heat the oil in a large deep skillet to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Fry doughnuts in the hot oil until golden, turning over once. Drain on paper towels. Dust with confectioners' sugar while they are still warm, and serve immediately.

I rated this 5 for taste but it turned out so well because I followed the others' recommendation to only add 1/2 cup milk. Doing it that way, it turned out PERFECT. I lightly wet my fingers be...

You can substitute plain yogurt for the milk/vinegar mixture - makes it easier, and they come out tastier (in my opinion).

WOW!! I used the recipe conversion and made only a 9 serving recipe and it turned out awesome. We used a 1/4 cup of buttermilk because that is essentially what the milk and vinegar are.. and ...

This recipe is very simple, quick, and tasty, and makes a perfect basic cake doughnut recipe. The dough doesn't have much flavor on its own, so for myself I would season them with cinnamon, citr...

I loved these, they were light and fluffy and reminded me of when my mother made doughnuts when I was a child. I agree with alot of other reviews, they needed more dry ingredients or less wet (...
