Raised Gingerbread Doughnuts and Holes

Photo: Jim Franco; Styling: Rebecca Donnelly

Raised Gingerbread Doughnuts and Holes are a comfort food classic with a holiday spin thanks to the fragrant spices of ginger, cinnamon, and cloves. To prevent sticking, dip a metal spatula in oil before sliding it under the raw dough, and then lower the doughnuts gently into the hot oil.

Yield: Makes 1 dozen doughnuts and 1 dozen holes
