4 cups all-purpose flour
¼ teaspoon salt
2 ½ teaspoons baking powder
1 ¼ cups of sugar
1 cup milk

3 tablespoons Land O’ Lakes unsalted butter, softened
2 eggs
¼ teaspoon vanilla
2 pounds oil for frying

In a large bowl, sift flour, salt, and baking powder. Add sugar and set aside. In another bowl, stir milk, butter, eggs, and vanilla. Make a well in the flour mixture and add milk mixture in the middle of it. Mix until a soft, non-sticky dough is formed. Turn dough out on a floured surface. Using the rim of a drinking glass, cut out 3 or 4-inch rounds. Cut a 2-inch hole out of the middle. Fry in a deep pan of oil at 360 degrees. Turn over until golden brown. You can top with powdered sugar, cake frosting, or a glaze of ¼ cup hot water, 1 teaspoon of cornstarch ( heated together before adding sugar), and 1 to 2 cups powdered sugar. You cna add more water to thin the icing, depending on your preference.
