Soft Doughnut

Doughnuts, is one of my favourite treats. 3 days ago, my families came over for dinner...they arrived around 6-ish..I prepared doughnuts since there will be kids around. They would love to enjoy some treats don't they? 

This dough I made its soft and milky & delicious, I can't stop eating lol..

adapted @ mykitchensnippets

2 1/2 cups flour
1/2 tsp salt
2 tbsp sugar
1 egg
3 tbsp  butter
1 tsp vanilla essence
2 tsp dry active yeast
2/4 cup of milk

1. Dissolve yeast in the warm water and set it aside until it gets frothy. Combined flour, sugar, salt together and mix it well.
2. Add in egg, margarine, yeast mixture and vanilla. Turn on the mixer and slowly drizzle in the milk until dough comes together (if dough is too soft add in a few tbsp more flour) Continue to knead until you get nice smooth dough. Cover the bowl with a dry kitchen towel and let it rise for an hour or double its size at a warm place.
3. Punch down the dough and remove onto a floured work tabletop. Roll out the dough to about 1/4" thick and cut the dough out into rounds with a donuts cutter. 
4. Let the dough rise again for about 30 minutes or until they feel light and spongy. Heat oil for deep-frying over medium heat. Slip a few donuts into the oil at a time, leaving enough room for them to expand. Make sure that the oil is not too hot otherwise the donuts will not be cooked inside.
5. When the donuts are golden brown, turn them over and cook the other side. It takes about 2–3 minutes to cook through. When donuts are done, remove from oil and drain the oil on paper towels before rolling them in sugar or glaze of your choice.
