Frugal Food Friday #7: Easy Homemade Donuts

A couple of weeks ago, I posted the recipe for Potato Refrigerator Dough, which I think should be in every frugalista's repertoire. I have figured out an easy way to make baked donuts with them (the dough should have already gone through its first rise in the fridge):

1 loaf worth of Refrigerator Bread Dough (1/3 of recipe)
melted butter (about 1/3-1/2 cup)
cinnamon sugar (about 1/2 cup - add cinnamon to sugar until it's spicy enough for you)

Roll out dough to about 1/2 inch thickness. Cut into circles using a glass with a large diameter. Cut out a small circle in the centre of each donut. Place on a cookie sheet and let rise for 1 hr or until doubled in size. Bake at 375 F for 8-10 minutes (don't overbake or they will be too dry!) Dip in melted butter, then in cinnamon sugar. Presto - donuts!
