Donut's made in a jiffy

Today's recipe is for doughnut's that are prepared in just minutes..
Which mom wants to go spend so much money at the doughnut shops all the time, when your kids ask for them or even when u want them your self..This can be expensive, and even time consuming. So all you savv'y Momma's out there this recipe is for you :)

Ingredient you will need to make 15-20 doughnuts
2 cups all purpose flour (maida)
1/2 cup sugar
5 tbsp butter or margarine (at room temp)
1 egg
2 tsp baking powder
pinch of salt
drop of vanilla essence (optional)
You can use a cookie cutter or just a cup or glass like i do for the doughnut shapes and a bottle cap for the doughnut holes.
milk to knead the dough ( only if you need it,do to the size of the egg you might not even need too much milk because you don't want the dough to get too soft or get sticky. so just add a little at a time with a tea spoon if needed) 

First add the flour in a bowl then add in your butter,and mix with your hands until flower gets nice and crumbly,then add egg,and mix more dig through the dough with your hands making the dough nice and    fluffy.Then add your sugar,salt,baking soda,and essence,and mix more for about 5-8 min.
Then prepare the dough make a big ball and roll,the thicker the dough,the thicker the donuts,and the thinner you roll out the dough the thinner donuts you will have.
Heat oil in pan put in a crumb of flour,and see if it rises to the top of oil,if it does then your oil is ready to go.Put in your donuts one at a time,and fry on both sides until they become nice and light brown. Then  place on a cookie sheet to cool.
You can serve your donuts hot with tea,or then cool,and ice them with your favorite toppings for the kids.You can also Put some away for later,In a air lock container like i do for the kids or when unexpected guest arrive...
You can even make mini donuts out of the doughnut holes.(glaze them with your favorite icings)
