Slightly Dry Cake Doughnuts
In another bowl, combine melted butter, milk and vanilla.
Add the milk mixture to the egg mixture and stir until combined.
Add the wet ingredients to the flour mixture stir until combined.
Chill the dough for about 30 minutes to make it easier to work with. (Ha!)
Generously flour your work surface and roll dough out about 1/4 inch thick.
Use a doughnut cutter or two circle cutters (1 and 3 inch) to cut out shapes.
Heat about 2 quarts oil (about 3 inchees deep) in a large, heavy pot to about about 360 degrees.
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)
Remove and place on a paper towel-lined tray.
Makes 12 doughnuts and 12 doughnut holes.
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. :)
With a mixer, mix sugar and butter.
Add milk one tablespoon at a time until you reach the desired consistency.
