For my first batch of the season, I opted for the raised doughnuts as opposed to cake doughnuts. Both are fried, but the raised variety uses yeast and takes a few hours more. (I like the taste and texture better.)
|First, I warmed up the kitchen by making chocolate chip cookies & waited for the dough to rise.|
|Everyone waiting to be fried.|
|It smelled like the fair in the kitchen; it was great.|
|Even the little guys were fried up.|
|I used paper bags to help soak up the extra oil.|
|Some were thrown in a bag with cinnamon & sugar.|
|...and some were dipped in glaze.|
*I recommend making the doughnuts at a family or friend's house because if you say they can have some, they may volunteer to do the dishes.
Happy Autumn & happy baking!
