30 seconds. Beat on medium speed, scraping bowl occasionally, 2 minutes.

double, approximately 50-60 minutes. Turn dough onto floured surface. Roll
dough 1/2-inch thick. Cut with round cookie cutter. Cover and let rise on
floured baking sheets until double, 30-40 minutes.

Heat vegetable oil in deep fryer or Dutch oven to 350. Slide doughnuts into
hot oil. Turn doughnuts as they turn golden brown, about one minute on each side. Remove carefully from oil (do not prick surfaces) and drain. When
cool, make small hole to insert vanilla frosting (recipe is on following
page) . Take a sharp narrow knife and carefully make a large cavity inside
of the doughnut to hold the frosting.

powdered sugar.
