Mardi Gras Doughnuts
- 2 cups all-purpose flour
- 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
- 2 teaspoons baking
- 1/2 cup milk
- 2 eggs
- 1 pinch salt
- 1 teaspoon pure vanilla
- Oil for deep frying
- Confectioners' sugar
- Mix the flour, sugar and baking powder together in a bowl. Make a well in the
middle and add the milk, eggs, salt and vanilla extract. Beat these together and
gradually work on the flour. Roll out on a floured board to about 1/4 inch or a
little thinner if preferred. Cut the dough into 2 x 4-inch strips and simply make
3 or 4 slits in the center of each.
- Fry in deep oil until golden brown.
- Sprinkle with confectioners' sugar.
Yield: approximately 18 to 20 doughnuts
These will be firmer than regular doughnuts.
