Expert Tips

Don't be afraid to deep-fry--it's easy! Just be sure to maintain the correct oil temperature so that the outside gets crisp and golden brown and the inside stays tender. One of the secrets of success is to fry the doughnuts in batches to keep from overcrowding the pan and causing a drop in the oil temperature.
