  • Using a small cutter,cut as many rounds out of the dough as you can.Gently pick up the rounds and place on a well floured sheet pan.
  • Using a very small cutter,cut the center hole.It can be anything you find actually..I used the back of my pen:)
  • Cover doughnuts in a large tea towel and place in a warm place.Allow doughnuts to raise at least an hour
Fry the doughnuts

  • In a large pot, pour enough oil.Heat to 375 f.
  • Gentle pick up and ease donuts into oil and cook each side until light and brown.
  • Remove from oil with a slotted spoon.Drain on several layers of paper towels carefully turning over ever 5 seconds to try and blot as much oil out as possible.
