"A man who was fond of wine was offered some grapes at dessert after dinner. "Much obliged," said he, pushing the plate aside; "I am not accustomed to take my wine in pills."--Jean Antheleme Brillat-Savarin, The Physiology of Taste

Ingredients:  
The dough:
5 cups warm water
1 cups sugar
1 cups oil
1 Tablespoon salt
10 eggs
2 Teaspoons vanilla
Flour
Yeast 3 packages put into 1 cup of warm water with 1 Tablespoon sugar dissolved and yeast sprinkled on top. Soak for 10 minutes.

Directions:
Directions:
In a large bowl, put in the warm water, sugar, oil, salt and vanilla. Stir until the sugar is dissolved; add the beaten eggs. Add flour a couple of cups at a time and mix; when you cannot mix with a wooden spoon, use your hands - knead and make a soft dough that does not stick to your hands.

This recipe makes a very large batch; you can make a lot less just divide the ingredients. Mix all together and put in a warm place to rise. The dough should be soft and kneaded well. The first rising will take about 45 mins. - 1 hour; punch down and rise again the second rising will take about 45 minutes.

For Doughnuts:
Sprinkle flour on your table; Roll out a piece of dough use a donut cutter to make the donuts and let rise for another 30 minutes. Heat oil for frying the donuts; drop in a little dough and it should begin frying immediately. Drop donuts into the oil, fry until golden brown, then remove, drain, and sprinkle with sugar or icing sugar. Yum!

For Cinnamon Buns:
Rollout a square of dough, spread butter, brown sugar, cinnamon, and raisins (if you want) and roll up. Cut into 1 pieces and put into a baking dish that has been greased and brown sugar spread with a little water added. This makes a sauce for the buns to sit into while baking. Bake until golden brown and ice.

Personal Notes:
I used to make this recipe - all 3 of you would help making your donuts and donut holes! The house would smell so good and we would eat fresh donuts with milk; sugar would become a moustache - good memories!
