Grandma Betsy's doughnuts
My mother-in-law came up to visit for the weekend and she’s always creating wonderful treats for us. Home-made doughnuts are one of her specialties and while she insists these aren’t *that* bad for you but I have my doubts.

Either way, it’s hard to stop when you’re eating them hot off the stove.

Allow bread dough to rise one time, then punch down, roll and cut out doughnuts (we had dog bones, hearts and doughnut holes this time). Allow the dough to rise a second time.

Heat the oil on the stove to about 350-degrees (she used corn oil). Drop the dough in the oil — don’t let it stick to the bottom of the pan! — and cook for about 30 – 45 seconds per side.

Just to put them over the top she also made a sugar glaze:
Powdered sugar, mixed with milk or orange juice to your preferred consistency.
