6 cup all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon plus
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon soda
1 cup sugar
3 eggs; beaten
3 tablespoon shortening
1 cup milk
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
Combine flour, baking powder, and soda; set aside.
Combine sugar, eggs, and shortening in a medium mixing bowl, creaming until light. Add dry ingredients and milk, alternately, mixing well between additions. Add vanilla.
Turn dough out onto a floured surface and knead gently several times. Roll dough out to 1/2-inch thickness; cut dough into shape of pig's ears. Put 2 slits in each dough piece (the slits allow dough to brown on both sides).
Fry dough in deep fat fryer in hot oil (350F) until golden brown. Drain on absorbent paper. Yield: 30 to 35 doughnuts.
NOTE: In North Louisiana these doughnuts are rolled in a cinnamon-sugar mixture while hot.
