Recipe by Nif_H
READY IN: 1hr 25mins




  • In a medium bowl, dissolve yeast in water. Add 1 cup milk and 1 cup flour. Cover and let rise for 30 minutes.
  • In a large bowl, cream butter and sugar together with a fork. Then mix in the eggs, one at a time.
  • Add in flour, salt, raisins, yeast mixture and milk. Stir until completely blended. I used a rubber spatula to scrape down the sides of the bowl.
  • Cover and let rise for 30 minutes.
  • Heat oil to 375°F.
  • Drop batter by the tablespoon into the hot oil. I used 2 spoons to help scoop the batter out of one with the other. When one side of the doughnut is browned, flip over and cook on other side.
  • Set doughnuts on paper towels to drain. After placing on serving plate, sprinkle with powdered sugar.
