Need an Easy Recipe to make your own Doughnuts ?
2 cups AP flour
2 tablespoons sugar
1 1/2 tablespoons (4 1/2 teaspoons) baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup lukewarm milk
1/4 cup melted butter
1 large egg
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
To make the doughnuts: Whisk together the flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt.
Whisk together the lukewarm milk, melted butter, egg, and vanilla.
Stir the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients to make a thick batter (or soft dough).
When the oil has come up to temperature, use a Tablespoon scoop (or spoon) to drop balls of batter into the hot oil. This recipe will make 2" doughnut holes using a tablespoon cookie scoop and dropping in balls of dough about as big as an undersized ping pong ball.
Fry the doughnut holes in oil @ 350 degrees for 2 minutes on the first side, or until they're a deep golden brown. Some of them may turn themselves over; that's OK, just use a pair of tongs to turn them back. After 2 minutes, turn the holes over, and fry for an additional 2 minutes, until golden brown. Transfer the doughnut holes to a baking sheet lined with paper towels to drain and cool.
When the doughnuts are cool, use a piping bag with a long, plain tip to fill them with as much jelly as you like.In any flavor you choose. Lisa
