I posted a photo of these homemade doughnuts a while back to my Instagram and I got a few comments like 'super mom!' and 'where do you find the time to do that?'... while I will let you believe all day long that I am a modern day June Cleaver... the truth is that these are so easy to whip up, and the dirty dishes sat in my sink for at least a full day after making them, I just chose not to Instagram a photo of that :)
Sunday Morning Doughnuts
2 c. flour
3 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. salt
6 tbsp. oil
2/3 c. water
Mix all ingredients together until dough is formed. Kneed for about 30 seconds then roll out on cookie sheet with flour to 1/2 inch thick. Using a juice glass cut out doughnuts, then using a smaller punch (I use the top of a Sigg bottle) cut a small circle out in the middle of each doughnut.
Prepare two bowls, one with a scoop powdered sugar and another with cinnamon sugar. Using a small saucepan, heat 1 and 1/2 c. of oil on low. With tongs grab the doughnut and lay into the oil, let sit for about 30 seconds then flip. This part is totally trial and error... my first doughnut rarely turns out. Just make sure you are cooking the doughnuts through before removing from oil without burning the outside. As soon as you take each doughnut out place in bowl of sugar and coat! Easy and so yum!
