Expert Tips

To make cinnamon-sugar doughnuts, replace ground ginger with ground cinnamon.

Don’t forget the doughnut holes. Fry separately until golden brown, then roll in ginger-sugar.

Instead of using a plate, add sugar and ground ginger to a brown paper bag. Then add warm doughnuts and give them a shake to coat.
