ingredients

1 package regular or quick-acting yeast
1/8 cup warm water (105 to 115 degrees F)
3/4 cup lukewarm milk (scalded then cooled)
1/4 cup granulated sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 egg
1/6 cup shortening
2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour

Vanilla Filling

1/4 cup solid vegetable shortening
1/4 cup butter or margarine
1/2 teaspoon clear vanilla extract
2 cups sifted confectioners' sugar
1 tablespoon milk

directions

Dissolve yeast in warm water in mixing bowl. Add milk, sugar, salt, egg, shortening and 1 cup of flour. Beat on low speed scraping bowl constantly, 30 seconds. Beat on medium speed, scraping bowl occasionally, 2 minutes.

Stir in remaining flour until smooth. Cover and let rise in warm place until 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 degrees F. 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 filling (recipe follows) . Take a sharp narrow knife and carefully make a large cavity inside of the doughnut to hold the filling. Fill the doughnuts generously and dust heavily with confectioners' sugar.

Vanilla Filling:

Cream butter and shortening, gradually add sugar 1/2 cup at a time. Add milk and vanilla, beat until light and fluffy. Will keep for 2 weeks in airtight, refrigerated container.

It's definitely a bit of work to make donuts like these at home but the results are worth it.

Wow, this is a good donut recipe! My family and I love this recipe! Like I was telling my mom that instead of buying donuts at the store I can make it myself. Yummy! Not so greasy.

I tried this recipe and it is wonderful. It took my husband and kids about 15 mins to eat them all. It also works well with apple filling or cherry. I used the canned pie filling and just put it in a blender for a few seconds so it wasn't as chunky. I do have one tip, if you are using ceramic bowls then put some hot water in the bowl for a few minutes to heat the bowl before you start the yeast. I didn't the first time and it cooled the water down to much for the yeast to rise.
