Sourdough Sams Recipe

Step 1

Sift dry ingredients, stir into liquid, roll out and cut with regular donut cutter. Then heat some oil in a deep fryer to 390 degrees F and fry. Makes about 17 Doughnuts with holes. Just before serving dust with powdered or cinnamon sugar.

NOTE: These doughnuts are virtually greaseless. And if you want you can make several batches at a time and freeze. They keep well and to me taste after a while in the freezer. Take out as many as needed and thaw and put sugar on or eat plain.
