baking powder-- 2 tsp
granulated sugar--1 1/4 cups
butter, melted--1/4 cup
Oil 2 cup
1. In a medium bowl combine flour, baking powder, and salt; set aside. In a large mixing bowl combine eggs, sugar, and vanilla. Beat with an electric mixer on medium speed for 3 minutes or until thick. In a small bowl combine milk and melted butter.
2. Add the flour mixture and milk mixture alternately to the egg mixture, beating on low speed after each addition just until combined. Cover and chill the dough for 2 to 4 hours.
3. On a well-floured surface, roll the dough to 1/2-inch thickness. Do not stir additional flour into the dough; this can cause the finished product to be heavy and dry.
4. Use a floured 2-1/2-inch doughnut cutter to cut the dough into rings. Dip the cutter into flour between cuts to prevent the dough from sticking to the cutter. Each cut should produce one doughnut and one doughnut hole.
5. Reroll dough scraps as necessary to make about 16 doughnuts and 16 doughnut holes.
6. If using an electric deep-fat fryer, heat the oil to 365°F according to manufacturer's directions. Or, in a heavy, deep large saucepan, heat the oil to 365°F.
