How to make it

  • Heat oil (2 to 3 inches) in deep-fat fryer or heavy kettle to 375 F.
  • Beat 1 1/2 cups of the flour and the remaining ingredients in large mixer bowl on low speed, scraping bowl constantly, 30 seconds.
  • Beat on medium speed, scraping bowl occasionally, 2 minutes. Stir in remaining flour. Turn dough onto well-floured cloth-covered board; roll around lightly to coat with flour. Roll gently 3/8 inch thick.
  • Cut with floured doughnut cutter. Slide doughnuts into hot oil with wide spatula. Turn doughnuts as they rise to surface.
  • Fry until golden brown, 1 to 1 1/2 minutes on each side. Remove from oil; do not prick doughnuts. Drain on paper towels. Serve plain, sugared or frosted.

    I can still remember my great-grandma holding me on her lap in her rocker as she placed her homemade cake donuts into the oil to fry...probably a little dangerous by today's standards, but I never was burned and SURE enjoyed those hot, fresh, cinnamon/sugar coated donuts hot from the oil...GREAT memory - thanks for sharing your recipe!
