Twisted Donuts - Yeast Donuts

I have been craving for these chewy, spongy doughnuts.  I like them coated in just plain sugar, icing sugar or cinnamon sugar!

yields approximately 2 dozen


1/4 cups lukewarm water
1 tablespoons yeast
1/4 cups sugar
2 tablespoons shortening
1/8 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup hot water
1/2 cups milk
1 eggs, beaten
3 1/4 cups flour

  • Dissolve yeast in lukewarm water.  Set aside.
  • In a large bowl mix together sugar, shortening, hotwater, salt, and milk. 
  • When milk mixture cooled down mix in beaten eggs and yeast mixture.
  • Gradually add flour, 1/2 cups at a time.  Add a bit more if dough feels sticky.
  • Refrigerate for 30 minutes up to 1 hour
  • Shape donuts to desired size.
  • Fill pan with olive oil. 2" deep.
  • Heat up oil.
  • Fry up donuts in medium low heat until golden brown.
  • Sprinkle with sugar or any topping you like.
