Sugar Doughnuts


A breakfast classic! Our recipe for homemade sugar doughnuts will have you frying up rounds like a pro.
  • 2 packages (1/4 ounce each) active dry yeast
  • 1 cup warm water (110° to 115°)
  • 1-1/4 cups warm milk (110° to 115°)
  • ½ cup canola oil
  • 1 cup sugar
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 3 large eggs, room temperature
  • 6 cups all-purpose flour
  • Oil for deep-fat frying
  • Confectioners' sugar, optional
  1. In a large bowl, dissolve yeast in warm water. Add warm milk and oil. Add sugar, salt and eggs. Stir in flour (dough will be very sticky). Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 1 hour.
  2. Stir dough down; roll out on a well-floured surface to ½-in. thickness. Cut with a 2-1/2-in. cutter. Place on greased baking sheets; cover and let rise for 15-25 minutes.
  3. In an electric skillet, deep-fat fryer or Dutch oven, heat oil to 350°. Fry doughnuts, a few at a time, until golden brown on both sides. Drain on paper towels. If desired, roll in additional sugar confectioners’ sugar.
