|Milk||1⁄4 Cup (4 tbs)|
|Unsalted butter||3 Tablespoon|
|Flour||1 1⁄2 Cup (24 tbs)|
|Active dry yeast||1⁄2 Tablespoon|
|Dark raisins||3 Tablespoon|
|Chopped mixed candied fruits||3 Tablespoon|
|Vegetable oil||2 Cup (32 tbs) (For Deep Frying)|
|Ground cinnamon||1⁄2 Teaspoon|
1 Heat milk, sugar, butter, and salt to hot (120°-130°F). Combine 3/4 cup flour and yeast in mixing bowl.
2 Combine flour mixture, milk mixture, egg, and egg yolk. Mix thoroughly.
3 Add enough remaining flour to form a soft dough. Knead on lightly floured surface until smooth€”about 10 minutes.
4 Place in greased bowl, turning to coat top. Cover; let rise in warm place until double€”about 30 minutes.
5 Knead in raisins and candied fruit. Let rest for 10 minutes. Shape into 20 equal balls. Heat vegetable oil to 375°F. Using a slotted spoon, carefully drop the balls (5 or 6 at a time) into the oil. Fry about 3 minutes, turning until golden brown all over.
6 Drain on several paper towels. Combine sugar and cinnamon, and dust doughnuts while warm. (I often dust doughnuts by shaking them in a lunch-size paper bag with this mixture.)
