Easy Homemade Doughnuts Recipe

Ingredients:
1 package rhodes dough rolls
1 container custard
1 container chocolate pudding
1 jar raspberry preserves (not jam)
1/2 cup powdered sugar
Oil for frying
LOTS of paper towels ;)

Directions:

  1. Remove dough from freezer. Lay on a baking sheet and let them defrost until doubled in size.
  2. In a heavy, deep large saucepan, heat about 4 inches oil (so the doughnuts can float) to 365°F.
  3. Place each ball of dough into the heated oil with a long-handle slotted spoon. Fry the donuts, three or four at a time, in the oil for 2 to 3 minutes or until they are golden brown, turning once.
  4. Remove the donuts with the slotted spoon, allowing excess oil to drain back into the fryer or pan.
  5. Drain the donuts on paper towels to avoid a greasy eating experience.
  6. Repeat with remaining dough.
  7. Cool the donuts slightly.
  8. Using a pastry bag fill doughnuts with your favorite filling
  9. Sprinkle the top of each doughnut with powdered sugar.

Chanukah is a celebration of the miracle of the oil that burned for 8 days instead of only one. To commemorate we eat foods fried in oil (such as doughnuts and latkes), light the Menorah each night of Chanukah. To spread the light and the Chanukah message of hope, Chabad of Chesterfield is hosting their annual Car Menorah Parade. Event details below:
