Drop Donuts


  • 1 egg
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1 Tbsp. melted butter
  • 1 Tbsp. vanilla
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1 1/3 cups all purpose flour
  • Ad
  • 2 1/2 tsp. baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt


Place eggs in bowl, beat one minute. Add sugar, butter, vanilla and milk. Beat 1/2 minute. Add dry ingredients and beat until well blended. Drop from teaspoon into a pot of shortening heated to 350 degrees. Cook 3-5 minutes. Drain on paper towel and roll in sugar while still hot.

This recipe has been a part of my whole life. As a child my Mother would make them for school bake sales and they were always a hit with the teachers and students alike. Now for my own family, I make enough of them to freeze and also to bring to pot- luck lunches at work. Always a hit and so easy to make.

we are going to try ... sounds good for a treat for grandkids. In the past have used canned biscuts and proceeded per your directions ..... rolling them at the end, so all gets cooked.

My Mom made donuts when I was a little girl too. We were probably the first to have 'munchkins'. Loved those donuts.

My Mom made these for years even on a wood burning range and pot of oil. I looked forward to them after school and she always made sure there were plenty fr all our family. Thank you for giving me a chance to remember those happy years.

Thanks for the recipe! How do you handle the donuts once you take them from the freezer?

Once taken from the freezer, just let them thaw for a few minutes and all is well.

For chocolate, just add some fry's cocoa, but not sure how much you should use. We never made them in chocolate.
