  • 2 lb flour
  • 1 package dry yeast
  • 1/2 liter (1/2 quart) milk
  • 1/4 lb butter or margarine
  • 4 tablespoons sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 3-4 eggs
  1. In a mixing bowl combine 2/3 of the flour and the dry yeast.
  2. In a big pan mix 3-4 eggs, salt, and sugar. Whisk and add the flour with the yeast gradually.
  3. Then, gradually add warm milk and the rest of the flour, at the same time mixing.
  4. When it is difficult to mix the dough, pour in warm butter or margarine, and use your hands to mix.
  5. Cover the pan with a towel and leave in a warm place.
  6. When the dough rises for the first time (can take a couple hours), push it down.
  7. When the dough rises the second time, roll it out, cut into (~ 2 inches wide) strips, and form your doughnuts (take a strip and hold the ends; twist into a knot).
  8. Bake at 375-400F about 20 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. (Or, you can fry them in oil (vegetable or canola) in a skillet on both sides, until golden brown and cooked through).
  9. When doughnuts are ready, sprinkle them with powdered or granulated sugar while still hot. Enjoy with tea or coffee!
