Aunt Rose's Mardi Gras Doughnuts Recipe

Submitted by Alcee-Hymet Family

Step 1

Mix the flour, sugar and baking powder together in a bowl. Make a well in the middle and add the eggs, milk, salt and vanilla. Beat these together and gradually work on the flour. Roll out on a floured board to about 1/4 inch or a little thinner if preferred.

Step 2

Cut the dough into 2 x 4-inch strips and simply make 3 or 4 slits in the center of each. Fry in deep oil until golden brown. Sprinkle with powdered sugar.

HINT: These will be firmer than doughnuts.

Yield: approximately 18 to 20.
