Cake doughnuts

1 cup sugar
3/4 cup sour cream
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp baking powder
1 cup milk
3 eggs
about 4 cups flour

oilfor frying
powdered sugar for dusting

Mix dry ingredients together.

Beat sugar and sour cream until light and well mixed. Beat in eggs one at a time. Add just enough flour to form a soft dough. Wrap dough in plastic wrap and chill for 20-30 minutes.

Roll dough on a floured surface to 3/4 inch thick and cut with floured cutter (or if you don't have a doughnut cutter, cut around the bottom of a glass to get a circle and cut out a center hole). Do not handle the dough more than necessary or it will become tough.

Heat oil to 350° F. Fry doughnuts in oil, turning once, until golden brown on both sides. Drain on paper towels and roll in sugar.

Makes about 2 dozen
