Slightly Dry Cake Doughnuts

Ingredients

1 cup sugar
4 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup milk*
1/4 cup butter, melted and cooled
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 1/2 cups powdered sugar
2 tablespoons butter, softened
1 teaspoon vanilla
5 tablespoons milk

Preparation

1
Sift flour, baking powder and salt in a bowl and set aside.
2
Beat eggs in a medium bowl until frothy. Add sugar and continue beating until combined.
3
In another bowl, combine melted butter, milk and vanilla.
4
Add the milk mixture to the egg mixture and stir until combined.
5
Add the wet ingredients to the flour mixture stir until combined.
6
Chill the dough for about 30 minutes to make it easier to work with. (Ha!)
7
Generously flour your work surface and roll dough out about 1/4 inch thick.
8
Use a doughnut cutter or two circle cutters (1 and 3 inch) to cut out shapes.
9
Heat about 2 quarts oil (about 3 inchees deep) in a large, heavy pot to about about 360 degrees.
10
Fry 1-2 doughnuts at a time about a minute on each side. (I didn’t actually time this, but it wasn’t too long)
11
Remove and place on a paper towel-lined tray.
12
When cool, sprinkle powdered sugar or dip them in a vanilla glaze.
13
Makes 12 doughnuts and 12 doughnut holes.
14
Most of the recipes called for a cup of milk. I dropped it back thinking the dough was too wet, but it probably needs it for the moistness if you can figure out how to work with the dough. :)
15
Vanilla glaze
16
With a mixer, mix sugar and butter.
17
Add vanilla
18
Add milk one tablespoon at a time until you reach the desired consistency.
