  • 1

    Stir vinegar into milk and let stand for a few minutes until thick.

  • 2

    Cream together sugar and shortening (and add melted chocolate if using that).

  • 3

    Add eggs and vanilla and stir until blended.

  • 4

    Sift together flour, salt, and soda (and cocoa if using that). Stir into sugar mixture, alternating with milk mixture to incorporate both thoroughly. ( I had to add about 1 1/2 cups extra flour to get a dough consistency myself.)

  • 5

    Roll dough out thick, about 1/3 inch and cut into doughnut shapes with a doughnut cutter. I used a large cup for the donuts and a narrow shot-glass for the holes. Roll excess dough into small balls and flatten to make more donut

  • 6

    Heat oil until it makes noise ( about 375°F ) and fry doughnuts.

More About This Recipe

  • This recipe proves that preparing homemade donuts is way easier than you may have thought. Don’t be put off by the addition of vinegar- it’s what gives the donuts a rich, buttermilk-like flavor. Sifting the flour, salt, and soda is also an important step as it makes them lighter and easier to incorporate with other ingredients.
