Rolling out and frying the donuts
Heat oil in a deep-fryer or large cast-iron pan or electric skillet. Oil temperature needs to be a steady 350 degrees. Use an instant-read thermometer to monitor the oil. Roll out the donuts to about 1/2 inch thick on a lightly floured surface. Cut to desired size with either a large or medium size donut cutter.
Fry in the hot oil for about 1-2 minutes on each side. Remove and allow donut to cool briefly. Once it is cool enough to handle, add your favorite coating or topping (see below)
These donuts are best when served warm and fresh.
If you don't have a donut cutter 2 round biscuit cutters will also work.
To coat the fried donut: Once the donut is cool enough to handle: Dip in powdered sugar. Dip in a mixture of granulated sugar and cinnamon. Dip in powdered sugar with cinnamon. Make a maple glaze with powdered sugar and maple syrup.
