The doughnut was originally a variation on the soul cake, in the shape of a never ending circle as a greater reminder of everlasting life and our passage to it.

DIRECTIONS

Beat the eggs, milk and shortening. Stir in sifted dry ingredients. Roll the dough on a well-floured board until one-fourth inch thick. Cut with doughnut cutter. Fry the doughnuts in deep fat at 370° until brown. Sprinkle with sugar and cinnamon while still warm.
