Ingredients

2
tbsp white vinegar
3/8
cup milk (3 oz.)
2
tbsp shortening
1/2

egg
1/2

2

Chocolate version:
Increase
sugar to 3/4 cup

cup cocoa powder to dry ingredients
OR
add 2 oz. unsweetened chocolate, melted, to butter/sugar

Directions

  • 1 Stir vinegar into milk and let stand for a few minutes until thick.
  • 2 Cream together sugar and shortening (and add melted chocolate if using that).
  • 3 Add eggs and vanilla and stir until blended.
  • 4 Sift together flour, salt, and soda (and cocoa if using that). Stir into sugar mixture, alternating with milk mixture to incorporate both thoroughly. ( I had to add about 1 1/2 cups extra flour to get a dough consistency myself.)
  • 5 Roll dough out thick, about 1/3 inch and cut into doughnut shapes with a doughnut cutter. I used a large cup for the donuts and a narrow shot-glass for the holes. Roll excess dough into small balls and flatten to make more donut

  • 7 Serving suggestions: while warm, dust powdered sugar over doughnuts, roll in sugar or a mix of cinnamon and sugar, or cinnamon and powdered sugar, or coat with a simple glaze of confectioner's sugar mixed with a tiny bit of water. Add some strawberry or cherry syrup to your simple glaze, a bit of cocoa, maple syrup, food coloring, or flavoring.
