  • Add lukewarm milk to a stand mixer bowl, sprinkle in your yeast. In 5 min. bubbles will start to form, once this happens add your eggs, 2 tbsp sugar, salt, flour, and room temp. butter.
  • Use a stand mixer with a dough hook to knead the ingredients for 10 minutes or until they form a smooth tacky dough. It should pull away from the sides of the bowl to be the ideal texture.
  • If it is too sticky add 1 tsp of flour in at a time until it is the right consistency to pull away.
  • Put the dough on to a flat surface and use both hands to work it into a large bowl. Don't flour the surface or it will become too dry.
  • Place dough in a lightly greased bowl with olive oil and cover it with plastic wrap. Let it rest for an hour and a half until it's doubled in size.
  • Now take the dough and divide into 12 equal pieces. Work them in the palm of your hands one at a time until each donut is rolled and compact.
  • Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and put donuts on it. Cover and let dough riser again for about an hour so they double in size again.
  • Place oil in frying pan on medium/high heat. You will know it is hot enough to fry them in if when you put a tiny piece of dough in it it begins frying almost immediately.
  • Put 2 at a time into the oil flipping when they are golden brown. Take out when both sides are golden brown and place on a baking rack or a few sheets of paper towels to absorb some of the oil.
  • When they are all done roll them in the last 2 cups of sugar so they are nicely coated and serve.
