Course: breakfast
Cuisine: american
Servings: 12


  • 2 T white vinegar
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 2 T shortening
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 t. vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup cocoa
  • 1 3/4 cup all purpose flour
  • 1/2 t. baking soda
  • 1/4 t. salt
  • 1 quart oil for frying
  • 1/2 cup pureed fresh strawberries
  • 2 cups confectioner's sugar


  • Stir the vinegar into the milk and set aside until milk thickens. In a medium bowl, mix together the shortening and sugar until well incorporated.
  • Beat in the egg and vanilla until all of the lumps are gone and mixture is smooth.
  • In a small bowl sift together the cocoa, flour, baking soda, and salt. AlternateĀ stirringĀ in flour and milk into the egg mixture until a soft dough forms.
  • Dust a work surface with flour and briefly knead the dough. Pat out the dough into a disc and roll out to about 1/3-inch thickness.
  • Using a donut cutter, a biscuit cutter, or a glass, cut out as many donuts as you can. Re-roll out dough scraps to use up all of the dough. If you don't have a donut cutter, use your fingers to poke a hole in the middle.
  • Lay out doughnuts on a wax paper lined tray and let stand for 10 minutes. Heat the oil to 375 degrees. While waiting for the oil, make the glaze.
  • In a bowl , whisk together strawberry puree and confectioners sugar, set aside.
  • To fry donuts, gently drop 3-4 donuts in the hot oil and cook for 1-2 minutes on each side, flipping once ( the handles of wooden spoons or wooden chopsticks are the best tools here). Remove from the oil and drain on paper towels. Continue with the rest.
  • To glaze the donuts, dip a slightly cooled donut into the glaze and place back on the wax paper tray .
  • Serve and enjoy!
