How to make it

  • In a large mixing bowl, dissolve yeast and 4 tsp. sugar in warm water.
  • Add the milk, eggs, oil, salt, remaining sugar and 8 cups flour until blended.
  • Stir in enough remaining flour to form a soft dough.
  • Divide dough in half.
  • Turn onto a floured surface; knead until smooth and elastic, about 6-8 minutes.
  • Place in two greased bowls, turning once to grease tops.
  • Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 1 hour.
  • Punch the dough down.
  • Turn onto a floured surface; roll out to 1/2" thickness.
  • Cut with a floured 3-in. biscuit cutter.
  • Place on greased baking sheets.
  • Cover and let rise until doubled, about 30 minutes.
  • In an electric skillet or deep-fat fryer, heat oil to 375 degrees.
  • Fry bismarcks, a few at a time, for 1 minute on each side or until golden brown.
  • Drain on paper towels.
  • Cool for 2-3 minutes.
  • Cut a small slit with a sharp knife in one side of each bismarck; fill with about 1 tsp. jelly or filling.
  • Decorate with frosting and sprinkles, if desired.
  • Note: I use a pipe tip and pipe my filling into my bismarcks.
