Easter Sunrise Donuts

  • 4 1/2 to 5 c. all purpose flour
  • 1 1/4 c. granulated sugar
  • 4 tsp. baking powder
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 3 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1 c. milk (I use 2%)
  • 1/4 c. canola oil
  • 2 tbsp. orange juice
  • 4 tsp. grated orange peel
Oil for deep-frying
Confectioner's sugar

In a large mixing bowl, combine 4 1/2 c. flour, sugar, baking powder and salt. In a separate bowl, combine the eggs, milk, oil, orange juice and grated peel and stir into the dry ingredients just until moistened. Stir in enough remaining flour to form a soft dough. Cover and refrigerate at least one hour.

Turn onto a floured surface and roll to 1/2" thickness. Using a 2 1/2" doughnut cutter, cut dough.

Using an electric skillet or a deep-fryer, heat oil to 375° F. Fry until golden brown on both sides. Fry a few at a time.

Drain on paper towels. Dust with confectioner's sugar.

Serve and watch them disappear.
