Old - Timey Drop Doughnuts

Drop in to oil, a few at a time.

Yum, our house is starting to smell like the doughnut vendors you walk past at the fair.

Sprinkle with sugar.

Sprinkle with powdered sugar.  
Old Time Drop Doughnuts
Recipe from Gooseberry Patch

2 eggs
1 cup of sugar divided
1 T. shortening, melted
1 cup of milk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
3 1/2 cup all purpose flour
2 t. baking powder
1/8 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon
oil for deep frying
In a mixing bowl, beat eggs until light; blend in 1/2 cup sugar, shortening, milk and vanilla. Set aside. Combine flour, baking powder and salt in another mixing bowl; stir into egg mixture to make a soft dough. Mix together cinnamon and remaining sugar; set aside. Heat several inches oil to 365 degrees in a deep saucepan. Drop dough into hot oil by teaspoonfuls, a few at a time. Fry until doughnuts turn themselves over and are golden on all sides. Drain on paper towels; roll in cinnamon mixture or, just sugar or how we like them with powdered sugar, roll while still warm.   



  1. Oh my goodness...this looks delicious and easy. I might have to give them a try this weekend.

  2. It never occurred to me that making donuts could be so easy. I guess I thought they had to be round with a hole in the middle. I probably shouldn't have read this post. I'd like to lose 10 pounds. Donuts are not going to help me. lol (and neither is lemon pie from Kwik Trip!!)
