In a regular bowl add the flour, sugar, eggs, butter and baking powder and cinnamon powder. Use an electric mixer to blend them Well. Keep processing till you get a smooth batter. It will seem a little sticky But that's how it's supposed to be.
If using a processor, transfer the dough to a separate bowl and shape into a ball. Cover with cling film or anything else to make the bowl airtight and leave aside to ferment until it is double in size.
After it has doubled in size, dip hand in flour and punch it down. Dust your working surface liberally with flour and transfer the dough onto it. Shape dough into a ball and flatten with palm.
Roll out to a little less than 1/2" thickness and cut out doughnut shapes. If you do not have a doughnut cutter, use a cookie cutter or a coffee mug to cut out the rings and a bottle top to cut out the holes in the middle of each doughnut.
Place the doughnuts on a tray that has been dusted with flour. Place them well apart. Roll up the rest of the cut out dough and repeat the process of cutting out more rings.
Heat oil in a deep pan or a wok. The oil should not be too hot. To test oil, drop in one of the cut out doughnut holes. It should rise up after sitting in oil for a few seconds. Carefully slide in a few doughnuts at a time into the hot oil. Keep the heat moderate.
After about 30 seconds, you will see the doughnuts begin time brown around the edges. Flip them over and let brown evenly on the other side too.
Remove from oil with slotted spoon and place on plate lined with absorbent paper.
These doughnuts turn out very soft, with a slightly crispy surface and a wonderful flavour. Perfect with tea or coffe-or even without!
PS- You can dip each doughnut in glaze or chocolate sauce and sprinkle them with coconut shreds or colorful sprinkles or sesame seeds. You can also top them with icing sugar or frosting. Or have them as they are (like I did with my family ) . The choice is yours. Be creative.
