Saturday morning pleasures!

Complements: www.recipezaar.com

1 tablespoon dry active yeast
1/2 cup warm water
1/2 buttermilk
3 tablespoons butter, melted
3 tablespoons sugar
2 1/2 - 3 cups flour
3 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
vegetable oil for frying

2 1/2 cup sifted powdered sugar
1/4 cup milk

Dissolve yeast in warm water in a large bowl; let stand 5 minutes. Add buttermilk, butter, sugar and 1 1/2 cup flour, baking powder and salt; mix well. Add enough remaining flour to make a soft dough. Turn dough onto a floured surface and knead several times. Roll dough to 1/2 inch think and cut with a 2 1/2 inch doughnut cutter. Place doughnuts on a lightly floured surface, cover and let rise 45 minutes. Heat 3 inches of oil to 375 degrees. Drop in a few doughnuts at a time. Cook about 2 minutes or until lightly golden in color, turning once. Drain well on paper towels. To make the glaze mix together the powdered sugar and milk. Sprinkle doughnuts with sugar or glaze. Enjoy!
