    I recently bought ‘donut mix’ in Charm,Holmes County, OH. I’m not sure how to use the mix to make donuts. The shop keepers that sold it to me did not know. I have 2-3 cups of mix. Do you have a recipe that might work with this? Thanks so much! Nancy

      My local Iowa Amish bulk store has the booklet with the recipe in it for the mixes. Here is the recipe from the booklet that uses the doughnut mix.
      Yeast Raised Donuts
      10 cups doughnut mix
      2 TBSP yeast
      1/4 cup warm water
      2 cups water
      Mix yeast with 1/4 cup warm water and let sit for 15 minutes. Measure 10 cups of mix into large bowl and add all ingredients. Let rise 1 hour. Roll out and cut. Let rise 15-30 minutes after they are cut. Deep fat fry.
