Donuts!

Donuts!













1 packet yeast
2 tablespoons warm water
3/4 cup room temperature milk
1/4 cup sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 egg
2 1/2 tablespoons margarine
2 1/2 cups flour
vegetable oil
2 1/2 tablespoons butter
1 cup powdered sugar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
hot water

1.  Dissolve yeast in warm water and let bloom for about five minutes.
2.  Add milk, sugar, salt, eggs, margarine, and flour.
3.  Mix with a spatula until you have a smooth dough.  (At this point you might need to add a bit more flour so it's not sticky depending on the humidity.)
4.  Let rest and rise for one hour.
5.  Turn the dough out on to a floured surface and roll it to about 1/2 inch thickness and cut out donuts (I used a large cup and a shot glass).
6.  Cover and let rest again for about an hour (the dough will expand so make sure they have room to grow).
7.  Heat vegetable oil (you'll know it's hot enough when you sprinkle in some flour and it crackles).  Carefully slide your donuts into the oil.  Keep a close eye on them and flip once…
