Makes about 8 donuts
This is a printable recipe.
1 1/4 cups all purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup milk
1/4 cup buttermilk
1/4 cup granulated sugar
3 Tablespoons melted butter
2/3 cup granulated sugar, for coating
4 cups vegetable oil, for frying
Line a plate with a few layers of paper towel and set aside.
Pour the sugar that will be used for coating into a shallow rimmed pate and set aside.
Combine the flour, baking powder and salt together in a small mixing bowl.
In a separate medium mixing bowl, add the milk, buttermilk, sugar and melted butter. Mix until well combined.
Add the wet ingredients to the dry and mix until just combined.
In a large sturdy skillet set over medium high heat, preheat the oil to a temperature of 350F. (Be sure to keep a watchful eye on the oil.)
While the oil is heating, take a donut sized ball of dough from the bowl. Working very gently so not to collapse the dough, roll it into a ball. Flatten the ball slightly and use your thumb and fingers to make a hole in the centre Gently stretch the hole open to form the donut shape.
Set aside and continue with the remaining dough.
Once the oil has reached 350 degrees, working in batches, gently place 2 or 3 donuts into oil, stretching holes back open if necessary.
Fry for about 1 1/2-2 minutes, until golden brown on bottom.
Then flip and fry the other side for another 1 1/2 to 2 minutes, until golden brown.
Using a heat proof slotted spoon or tongs, carefully remove the donuts from the oil and set aside to drain on the paper towel lined plate.
Roll the donut in the sugar and set on a serving platter.
Repeat this process with remaining dough.
Serve donuts warm or cooled.
