If you give a Dog a Donut






Homemade Doughnuts


2 Tablespoons yeast
1 /4 cup warm water (105 to 115 degrees F)
1 1/2 cups warm milk
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1 teaspoon salt
2 eggs
1/3 cup shortening
5 cups all-purpose flour, divided
In a glass measuring cup add yeast and warm water. Sprinkle top with a pinch of sugar. This helps ?feed? the yeast. Set aside. In mixing bowl, add warm milk, sugar, salt, eggs and shortening. Blend together. Add in 2 cups flour and continue to blend. Pour in yeast mixture and add remaining flour. Mix together until dough forms into a ball. Knead several minutes on a floured counter. Let rest 30 minutes.

Start preheating a deep fryer or large pan of oil.

Meanwhile, place dough on a floured surface and roll into a large rectangle. Cut out circles with a doughnut cutter. Place cut doughnuts on a cookie sheet. Continue to roll out and cut doughnuts until you?ve used all your dough.

Fry doughnuts several minutes until golden brown on each side. Place on several layers of paper towels to drain and cool.
