Here's a little recipe that we've been enjoying here lately. They are doughnut drops and they are really quick and easy. The recipe makes more than this.. someone must have ate a few before the pic was taken! ?
1-1/2 c flour if using self rising flour, omit baking powder and salt.
1/2 c sugar
1-1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
2/3 cup milk
1 Tablespoon oil
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
Mix dry ingredients - add remaining ingredients and stir just until dry ingredients are moistened.
Heat shortening to 365 degrees. (i use an old iron skillet with at least an inch of melted shortening)
Drop the mix by the teaspoon into the hot oil -and cook 2 to 2-1/2 minutes, turning occasionally. Drain on paper towels or a rack. Once slightly cooled, roll in cinnamon sugar. powdered sugar, plain sugar, or serve plain
