DIRECTIONS

  • In a large bowl, dissolve yeast in warm water.
  • Add the milk, eggs, sugar, butter and salt; beat until smooth.
  • Stir in enough flour to form a soft dough (do not knead).
  • Start with 5 cups flour, although you may need to use 5 1/2 or so, until dough is not sticky.
  • Place in a greased bowl turning once to grease top.
  • Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 1 hour.
  • In an electric skillet, heat oil to 375°. Drop tablespoonfuls of dough, a few at a time, into hot oil. Fry for 1-1/2 to 2 minutes on each side or until deep golden brown. Drain on paper towels.
  • Immediately roll warm doughnuts in sugar and cinnamon mixture, or serve with syrup.
