Sourdough Doughnuts


I always look for ways to use my sourdough start. When dieting this is a burden too large. Eating two of these babies just out of the deep fryer is a vice.


½ cup sourdough start
2 Tablespoons oil
1 teaspoon baking powder
½ teaspoon baking soda
1 egg
2 cups flour
1/2 cup sugar
¼ teaspoon cinnamon
½ teaspoon salt
1/3 cup milk

Prepare a deep fryer for frying. Prepare a tray with paper towel for draining doughnuts. Heat oil to 350 degrees.
Sift dry ingredients together. Mix remaining ingredients together and add to dry. Bring dough together gently with your hands. Sprinkle some flour onto a work surface and turn dough on to it. Knead it to help bring the dough together. Roll out and cut with a doughnut cutter.
Fry until golden brown. Test the first one for doneness by breaking it in two and checking if the middle is doughy. Drain on paper towel. Toss with cinnamon sugar to coat.
