Ingredients:  
Ingredients:  
3 1/2 cups (1 pound) cake flour
3 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp cinnamon
2 eggs, room temperature
1 cup sugar
3 tbsp unsalted butter*
1 cup milk, room temperature
1 tsp vanilla extract
Fat for frying, such as canola oil

Directions:
Directions:
Variation: for chocolate donuts, melt 3 ounces of unsweetened chocolate along with the butter and continue as directed.
Sift together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt and cinnamon in a large bowl. In the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with a paddle, beat the eggs until foamy, gradually add the sugar and continue to beat until thick and yellow. Melt butter in a saucepan over low heat and combine with milk and vanilla extract. Stir the milk mixture into the egg mixture until blended. Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and mix just until incorporated. Chill for 30 minutes to make it easier to roll and cut.
Roll or pat the dough out on a heavily floured surface to about 1/4-inch thick, the dough is somewhat wet. Cut with a floured doughnut cutter, saving the holes. Transfer to a sheet of waxed paper and allow to air dry for 10 minutes. The dough will form a slight crust and absorb less fat when fried.
Heat 3-inches of vegetable oil or shortening to 375 degrees F in an electric fryer or deep saucepan. Fry doughnuts until golden, about 5 minutes each side. To keep the oil temperature constant, fry 3 at a time. Fry the holes separately and drain on paper towels.
