Simple doughnut that you can make fresh in your own home. the dough may be sticky but with sufficient flour on your rolling board, that should not be a problem.
2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 cup sugar
1 tablespoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon cinnamon powder (optional)
1 cup milk
1 egg, beaten
1/4 cup butter, melted and cooled
2 teaspoon vanilla
oil for deep frying
Fine sugar for coating the doughnuts
In a large bowl, stir together the flour, sugar, baking powder, salt and cinnamon. make a well in the centre and pour in the milk, egg, butter and vanilla. Mix well until blended. The dough will be very soft. Cover and refrigerate for about 1 to 2 hrs.
2. Heat oil. On well floured board, roll chilled dough to 1/2 inch thickness and use a doughnut cutter to cut out the dough and fry doughnuts right away.
3. Coat the still warm doughnuts with fine sugar.
