  1. Pour equal parts of vegetable oil and olive oil into a large frying pan to reach a depth of 2 inches.
  2. Heat the oil over medium heat until a deep-fry thermometer registers 375 degrees F.
  3. Roll out the dough on a lightly floured surface to 1/2-inch thickness.
  4. Using a floured 2-inch cookie cutter, cut out doughnut rounds.
  5. Using a floured 1-inch cookie cutter, cut out a hole in the center of each doughnut.
  6. Gather the dough scraps and re-roll to cut out more doughnuts.
  7. Whisk the sugar and cinnamon in a medium bowl to blend.
  8. Set the cinnamon-sugar aside.
  9. When the oil is hot, working in batches, fry the doughnuts until they puff but are still pale, about 45 seconds per side.
  10. Using a slotted spoon, transfer the doughnuts to paper towels to drain. Cool slightly.
  11. While the doughnuts are still warm, add to the bowl with cinnamon-sugar and generously coat each 2 times with the cinnamon-sugar.
  12. Serve warm.
  13. Alternately, cool the fried doughnuts to room temperature.
  14. Stir 3 ounces milk chocolate and 1/4 cup whipping cream in a heavy small saucepan over medium-low heat until the chocolate melts.
  15. Set aside until the chocolate sauce comes to room temperature but does not set.
  16. Dip 1 side of each doughnut into the chocolate mixture.
  17. Sprinkle with finely chopped toasted almonds or crushed espresso beans and set aside until the chocolate is set.
