Homemade Donuts (no hole)

In chatting with osmeone on momdot, I talkd about making my homemade donuts. She asked how to do it, so here you go.

What you will need:
5 c. flour
2 pkg. yeast
2 c. warm water
2 tbsp. sugar
1 tsp. salt
4 tbsp. oil
1 egg
Vegetable oil for frying (about 2 to 3 inch frying pan or deep fryer)
Small paper bag with approximately 2 c. sugar

Dissolve yeast in water with 2 tablespoons sugar. Add part of the flour with the salt and mix well. Beat in egg and add oil. Add remaining flour. Let rise for 1 hour. Drop into hot oil with a large spoon, or use your fingers. Donuts will be about 2 to 3 inches in diameter. Fry on both sides, drain on paper towels and then dip into sugar filled bag to coat.
