    I think a slotted fish spatula would probably work best.

    Then I bet you don't have one! It's a long, flexible one, with slots or holes for drainage, but any spatula large enough should work fine, as long as the raw dough doesn't stick to it.

    Spraying the spatula with cooking spray or wiping with oil may help it get under the doughnut without deflating it. You can dip the whole thing into the oil to let the donut "float" off. Don't use a nylon spatula - metal is best or silicone.

    Maybe letting them rise on parchment would be a good idea, too.

    Thanks, thats a good idea. It's the transfering them to the fryer, that gives me problems. I will try all these ideas. thanks

    An interesting idea I recently saw was to take brown butcher paper and lay it in a baking pan. Coat the paper liberally with oil, then put the doughnuts on the paper to rise. When risen, invert the paper over the fryer, laying the doughnuts into the hot oil and slowly peeling back the paper. As they start to cook, they will let go of the paper.

    Too close to the fire for me! Flame, hot oil, oily paper, I'd be too nervous. icon_eek.gif Interesting, though.

    To be honest, I did see it on a cooking show, and he was using a commercial fryer which was heated electrically. I didn't think about the risk of doing it near an open flame. (He was also using pate a choux to make Paris-Brest, but it would work equally well for doughnuts, if it could be done safely.)

    This blogger takes the squares of parchment paper with the donuts on them, and drops them, parchment paper side down, into the hot oil.

    Note: she uses a skillet / frying pan not a deep fryer.
