  • 1 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup oil
  • 2 Teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 2 Tablespoon yeast
  • 2 eggs, or 4 egg whites
  • 5 cups flour

Mix all but the flour, add perhaps 2 - 3 cups of flour and make a batter. Let rest few minutes. Add enough batter so the dough does not stick to the bowl. Turn out onto floured surface and knead till smooth. Place in oiled bowl. Let rise till double - about 1 - 1.5hours. Dump onto floured surface, do not knead, but take rolling pin and roll to about inch thick. Cut with donut cutter. Place donuts on Pam'd cookie sheets. Let rise again, about 1 -1.5 hours. Heat oil in skillet to 350 degrees. Place a hole in. It should bubble well and start browning immediately. When placing doughnuts in oil, pick up carefully with a pancake turner and place upside down in oil. Turn once when browned. Take out and drain. Glaze with powdered sugar, vanilla and water to desired consistency. Edible only when hot. Makes about 2 doz.
