Prep: 30 min.
Cook: 5 min.
Makes: 20 doughnuts
4 1.2 to 5 cups all purpose flour
1 1/4 cups sugar

1 tsp. salt
3 eggs, lightly beaten
1 cup 2% milk

Confectioners’ sugar
1. In a large bowl, combine 4 1/2 cups flour, sugar, baking powder and salt.
2. Combine the eggs, milk,oil, orange juice and peel; stir into dry ingredients just until moistened. Stir in enough remaining flour to form a soft dough. Cover and refrigerate for a least 1 hour. Now let me say this, make this the night before!
3. Turn onto a floured surface; roll to 1/2 in. thickness. Cut with a floured 2 1/2 in doughnut cutter or use a round glass, then a shot glass for the center hole. Works all the time.
4. In an electric skillet or deep-fat fryer, heat oil to 375 degrees. Fry doughnuts. a few at a time, until golden brown. Dust warm doughnuts with confectioner’s sugar or ground cinnamon. ENJOY!!
