PUTA (small donuts) RECIPE

I always love the smell of my mum's donuts whenever she makes it!It just makes you feel great and want to rush out and grab a donut and munch it happily!!Luckily, she has passed the recipe down to me and i can now make it whenever my kids wants to eat them!Enjoy!

1 cups all-purpose flour
1 1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/4 tsp. salt tsp. salt
1-2 eggs (makes donut softer)
1/4 cup sugar (or to your own desire)
1 cup milk OR water
canola oil (or any cooking oil)

1)Get a Pan/small pot:Use just enough oil to cover the bottom of the pan/pot about 1/2 an inch. Leave it to heat on the stove.
2)Mix the dry ingredients altogether
3)Mix the milk (or water) to the dry ingredients so that it has the consistency of dumplings.Make sure its not to liquid and its not too thick...but just right!
4)Get a small cup ready with milk or water in it (to dip the tablespoon you will be using to make donuts with so the dough won't get stuck to the tablespoon)
5)Test if the oil is ready by dropping a tiny dough in it!If it sizzles, that means its READY!!
6)Now that your oil is ready, get a tablespoon and try and make little balls about 1/2 an inch to an inch thick. However big you want them. Warning:The bigger they are, the longer they have to cook and the more susceptible they are to being doughy in the middle and burnt on the outside.
7)Cook them until they turn a nice golden brown. *Carefully watch these to make sure they don't burn! MAKE SURE its medium heat and NOT HIGH!!
8)Once it turns a nice golden brown, carefully take then out and put it in a bowl with paper towels line in it to absorb the fats.
9)WELL DONE!You did it!Now make some hot cocoa and enjoy it with these delicious donuts!!
