World War 1/ Salvation Army Doughnuts

So for my homework, we made these DELICIOUS doughnuts! I'm not actually kidding, they were really nice!

So (as you can see in the pictures) we made normal (well a bit smaller than normal but...) sized doughnuts and then we made really small ones! We got the smaller ones from when you cut the middle out of the doughnuts...

So here's how you make it:

You will need: (Serves 32 - 36)

2 eggs
2 tablespoons of butter
1 cup of sugar
Just a little bit less than a cup of milk
4 cups of flour
1 teaspoon of vanilla essence
4 teaspoons of baking soda/powder
1 teaspoon of salt
powdered sugar (just grind normal sugar :D)

Here's how you make them! :

  1. Beat the eggs in a bowl until they are light and lemon coloured
  2. Gradually add the sugar and beat all together until the mixture thickens 
  3. Combine the flour, baking powder and salt in another bowl
  4. Add the dry ingredients alternating with additions of butter, milk and vanilla to the egg mixture
  5. Still until the flour is moistened
  6. Chill for 1 hour
  7. Preheat oil in a deep - fryer (basically a deep pan)
  8. Roll out to about 1/2" thickness
  9. Cut using doughnut cutter (I just used random things that were circular)
  10. Fry until golden - brown (they literally take about 10 seconds on each side - watch them carefully)
  11. Sprinkle with powdered sugar
  12. Serve them to your friends and/or family!
I hope you enjoy them! Tag me in any photos you make on Instagram (singster_blows) and other social media (just not twitter)

 I look forward to seeing them!
