  • 1 1/4 cups sugar
  • 2 tbsp melted butter
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup milk
  • 4 cups flour
  • 4 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • Canola or vegetable oil for frying


Step 1

In a large glass bowl, cream the sugar, eggs, vanilla and butter.

Step 2

Combine the flour and baking powder. Alternate adding the flour/baking soda and the milk in the creamed ingredients.

Step 3

Roll out dough in flour and sugar, and cut to desired size.

Step 4

Drop in hot oil turning once when brown. Do not crowd the doughnuts or add too many at a time in the oil. This has a tendency to cool the oil too fast and make the pastries greasy.

Step 5

Sprinkle with powdered sugar or Steen's syrup.
