Looking for a delightful and mouthwatering treat? Your search ends here with our heavenly Donuts recipe!
2 cups all-purpose flour, 1/2 cup granulated sugar, 2 tspn baking powder, 1/2 tspn salt, 1/2 cup milk, 2 large eggs, 2 tblspn unsalted butter (melted), 1 tspn vanilla extract, oil
In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt until well combined.
In a separate bowl, mix the milk, eggs, melted butter, and vanilla extract until you have a smooth, creamy mixture.
Gradually add the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients, stirring until you form a soft dough. Be careful not to overmix.
Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and refrigerate the dough for at least 1 hour to let it rest and rise.
After the resting period, roll out the dough on a floured surface to a thickness of about 1/2 inch.
Use a donut cutter or a round cookie cutter to cut out the donuts. If you don't have a cutter, you can use a glass for the outer shape and a bottle cap for the center hole.
Heat the oil in a deep fryer or a large, deep saucepan to 350°F (175°C). Fry the donuts in batches, making sure not to overcrowd the pan.
Cook each donut for about 2-3 minutes on each side or until they turn golden brown and puffy.
Remove the donuts from the oil using a slotted spoon and place them on a plate lined with paper towels to absorb excess oil.
Your homemade donuts are now ready to be devoured! Share these delectable treats with your friends and family, or savor them all by yourself (we won't judge!).
