3 cups of oil (canola or vegetable)
Melted butter, powdered sugar and/or cinnamon sugar (needless to say; I use all three)
It’s also great with butter and Jam (any flavor you like) or how about pancake style with a little butter and maple syrup……it’s all good.
When mine come out of the oil I drain them on paper towel, then I put a piece of fried dough on a plate, slather it with melted butter, sprinkle it with powdered sugar then dust it with cinnamon sugar, good thing I don’t make this on a regular basis.
Pour oil into an 8 inch skillet, until the skillet is half full. Heat the oil over medium heat. Meanwhile, prepare your pieces of dough. Break off pieces of dough the size of the palm of your hand. Flatten each piece with your hands until it is 1/2 to 1 inch thick. With a fork, prick the top of each piece of dough all over.
When the oil is very hot, but not smoking, begin to fry the dough. Cook as many pieces as you can fit in the skillet at the same time. When the pieces become light brown on one side, turn them. When the other side is also light brown, transfer the fried dough to a paper towel to drain. Top with whatever you like,
