This is my recipe for homemade doughnuts. These doughnuts are light and super delicious.

Take 2 pkgs. of yeast and place in a bowl. Add in 1 tsp. of sugar and 1/2 c. really warm water. Stir and let it activate for 10 minutes. Meanwhile, you will also need:
4 c. flour
3/4 c. milk
1/3 c. shortening
1/4 c. sugar
1 tsp. salt
Scald your milk and shortening together in a small pot.
Once they are scalded, pour into a mixing bowl and stir in the sugar and salt. Add your flour, eggs, and activated yeast mixture. Stir well; transfer to a table top or counter top. Knead the dough. Spray your mixing bowl with cooking spray and place the dough inside; place in a warm area and let rise until doubled.
Roll out the raised dough 1/4-1/2" thick and cut into doughnuts. I do not have a doughnut cutter so I used my biscuit cutter and then the "hole" I used the lid to my vanilla. It worked nicely.
Place the cut doughnuts onto a sprayed cookie sheet and let them rise for about 30 minutes.
Drop doughnuts into hot oil until done.
Dust the cooked doughnuts with powdered sugar or mix up some cinnamon sugar and sprinkle on the doughnuts or make a glaze.
3 T. milk
1/2 tsp. vanilla
1 c. powdered sugar
Mix well and drizzle over doughnuts.
