Homemade Mini Donuts Yummy


what you’ll need 

1 package active dry yeast instant if you’re in a rush (3 tsp.)
3 Tbsp. warm water
41/4 cups all-purpose flour plus additional for sprinkling and rolling out dough (use half whole-wheat if you like)
1 cup milk at room temperature
2-3 tbsp butter or non-hydrogenated margarine softened
1 large egg
3 Tbsp. sugar
1 tsp. salt

how to make It 


canola oil for frying
cinnamon sugar for dipping (spike sugar with as much cinnamon as you like)
In a large bowl stir together the yeast and water set it aside for 6 minutes until it’s foamy (If it doesn’t foam throw it out and buy fresh yeast It won’t foam much but if it just sits there and does nothing it’s inactive) add the flour milk butter egg sugar and salt and stir until you have a soft sticky dough stir for a minute or two then cover and set aside for an hour if you have time and aren’t at a 10th birthday party
turn the dough out onto a lightly floured surface and pat with floured hands until it’s about 1/3 inch thick cut out as many rounds as possible with the rim of a shot glass and poke a hole in each with your finger stretching it out a bit as it will puff up as it cooks closing the hole somewhat If you like cover with a kitchen towel and let them rise for another 25 -35 minutes (this isn’t necessary but will produce lighter doughnuts)
heat about 3” of oil in a deep heavy saucepan until it’s hot but not smoking you’ll know when it’s hot enough by dipping in a piece of bread or a bit of dough - it should start sizzling right away If the oil is too cool they will take too long to cook and will absorb too much oil making them heavy
cook doughnuts 3 at a time turning occasionally with tongs or a slotted spoon until puffed and golden brown about 3 minutes per batch transfer to paper towels to drain then toss in cinnamon-sugar while still warm
