Soft and Moist Fried Donut

I was looking for soft and moist donut recipe for awhile: I search the recipe from my baking books and online .At last I found the recipe at secretdonutrecipe !! I like my donut soft and moist and this recipe is quite good .I adapted the original recipe slightly to suit me..If you are looking for the method ,step to step and instruction how to make this delicious donut,hop over to secretdonutrecipe..
2 cups of all purpose flour (I used bread flour,sieved)
1/2 cup of warm mashed potatoes (I used dried mashed potatoes)
1/2 tsp of salt
1/4 cup of sugar
1 cup warm milk
5 tsp Instant Active Dry Yeast ( 2 envelope)
2 tbsp oil

For Topping:
2 tbsp cinnamon powder
1/2 cup granulated sugar

Method:(I used Breadmaker)

1:Combine all ingredients in breadmaker,then press the key function on *Dough* .
2:Let's the BM mix and knead the dough until the cycle finish with "beep" sound then the BM start proofing the dough for the next cycle.
3:Remove dough from BM,dust some flour on the surface if necessary.Use rolling pin to roll the dough out to 1 1/2 inch thick.
4:Use donut cutter or round cookies cutter to cut the dough shape out.If you use cookies cutter to cut the outer round shape,then use pipping tip to cut the hole out. If you don't have pipping tip,try to be creative, use anything small and sharp to cut the hole.
5:Place the cut donut on large baking tray. Cover the donuts and let it rise until it almost doubles in size.
6:Prepare oil in fryer at medium heat,deep fry donut rings on both side until golden brown.Dish and drain on a paper towel ,set aside.
7:Combine cinnamon powder and sugar together in a large bowl.Roll fried donut into the cinnamon mixture,then serve.
if you're looking for kneading method,please refer to "SecretDonut Recipe "site.
You can use any topping you like...vanilla ,strawberry or chocolate glaze.

I like simple donut like this! My mom made this when I was young and I remember I stood by her and helped to do the final touch - coat the donut with sugar :)...

The donuts look so soft and moist. I always like this type of donuts compare to the one from dunkin donuts.

Oh wow these look absolutely so yummy and soft. I love donuts and rather have them just dusted with sugar instead of the glazed types (though I like them as well). I have to give this a try one day.
