2 cups canola or vegetable oil for frying
2 1/4 cup Flour
1/3 cup sugar
1/4 cup milk
1/2 cup Blue Moon Mango Wheat Beer
1 Tbsp of baking powder
1/2 tsp of ground cinnamon
1 egg (slightly beaten)
1/4 cup olive oil
Put the two cups oil in a skinny and tall pot for frying. You want your doughnuts to float and not touch the bottom. Heat to around 350-375°F. If you don’t have a thermometer, you can put a wooden spoon in the oil and it if bubbles, it’s ready.
Mix the dry ingredients and pour in all the wet ingredients. It’s okay for the batter to be lumpy, you don’t want to over-mix the dough, otherwise the doughnuts will be tough.
Using two spoons, put the batter into small balls and drop into the hot oil. Fry until golden brown. It should take 2-3 minutes. You want the balls to be small, the size of a quarter. Otherwise if you make the balls too big, the outside will cook faster than the inside and no one wants that.
Once the doughnuts are ready, remove them from the hot oil and place on a plate with paper towels for draining and cooling.
After the doughnuts have had a chance to cool down, about 5-10 minutes, you can roll them in powdered sugar or a sugar/cinnamon mixture.
