If you follow me on Instagram you might have seen that I made Eskimo Donuts last week. Where I live, Eskimo Donuts are a staple. Eat them with your chili or soup. Put your taco toppings on them, cover them in cinnamon sugar, dip them in maple syrup, or just eat them plain. They are a favorite for sure.
After posting my instagram photo I got a couple requests for the recipe. My big secret to this recipe, though, is that it doesn’t really have a recipe. You can use whatever bread recipe you already use. It’s just bread…in donut form, fried to yumminess.
Now for those of you who don’t already have a tried and true bread recipe, feel free to use mine. If you have any questions about it go ahead and ask! And if you aren’t a bread maker don’t feel scared about making this recipe…it is really easy.
Ingredient List Directions Making the Donuts
Making the Donuts
- I always stir my dough with a fork until it becomes too hard to stir, when I switch to stirring with my hand.
- Cover dough with a towel while it rises and set it in a warm place. I always set it on my oven.
- Cover your hands in Crisco shortening while forming the donuts. This will make them far easier to work with.
- Use any deep pan or pot to heat your oil in.
- Test your oil temperature by dropping a small amount of dough into the oil. If it bubbles immediately the oil is ready. If not, leave the dough in until it bubbles and comes to the top of the oil. That is when you are ready to start frying your donuts.
I hope you try these! Let me know if you do and if you like them! Have any questions about my recipe? Ask!
