By Request.

I had a request to share my homemade doughnut recipe with you all so Dani, this is for you! You will need a bread maker machine for this recipe.

3/4 cup warm milk
1/3 cup warm water
1 egg
3 1/2 cups all purpose flour
1/4 cup sugar
1 tsp salt
4 Tbsp vegetable shortening
2 tsp fast rise yeast

1. add warm milk, warm water & egg to bread pan.
2. Add flour, sugar & salt to pan. Tap pan to settle dry ingredients, then level ingredients, pushing some of the mixture into corners. Place shortening into corners of pan.
3. Make a well in center of dry ingredients & add yeast. Lock pan into bread maker.
4. Program for dough. Start bread maker. When done, remove pan from bread maker. Place dough onto floured surface. Let rest 15 minutes.
5. Roll dough into a rectangle, about 1/2 inch thick. Cut with doughnut cutter (or a cup!). Leave on counter to rise, covered. Knead together scraps of dough, let rest 10 minutes and reroll. Cut into doughnuts. Let doughnuts rise, covered, in warm draft-free place for 30-45 minutes or until double in size.
6. Fry 3 to 4 doughnuts at a time in 3 inches of vegetable oil, preheated to 375 degrees F. Fry 2 to 3 minutes until golden brown on both sides. Remove and place on paper towel to drain. 
7. Frost or sugar as desired. 
My favorite glaze is simple and delicious:
Mix powdered sugar & milk until you have a good consistency! 

I hope some of my friends get a chance to try these because they are delicious!
