You Asked For It

Don't be mad at me when you make these - and then want to eat 10 - and then have to kill yourself at the gym for a month to make up for it.

Raised Doughnuts or Donuts (from my mom who I think got it from a family in our ward a bajillion years ago).

1 pkg yeast
1/4 cup warm water
3/4 cup lukewarm milk
1/4 cup sugar
1 tsp salt
1 egg
1/4 cup shortening
3 1/2 cups to 3 3/4 cups flour

Dissolve yeast in warm water. Stir in milk, 1/4 cup sugar, salt, egg, shortening and 2 cups of the flour. Beat until smooth. Mix in enough remaining flour to make the dough easy to handle. Place in a greased bowl and turn to coat dough. Cover and let rise in warm place until double (1 1/2 hours). Punch down dough. Let rise again another 30+ minutes. Roll dough 1/2 inch think on lightly floured surface. Let rise uncovered until doubled 30-45 minutes. Heat oil to 375. Cook and turn donuts until golden brown. Drain on paper towels. Coat in powdered sugar, cinnamon sugar, powdered sugar glaze, or chocolate. You pick. :)
