Hi Denise,

I think you mean "fastnachts" or "fasnachts". See below for recipes.



1 cake yeast or 1 pkg. dry yeast
1/2 c. shortening
1 egg
1/2 c. sugar
1 tsp. salt
1 1/2 c. milk
Enough flour to make soft dough

Scald milk.  When cool, add yeast, shortening and egg.  Add sugar, salt and flour
sifted together.  Work thoroughly until light and smooth.  Put in a warm place
to rise until doubled in bulk.  Roll out on lightly floured board and cut into
strips.  Strips may be tangled or twisted into various shapes.  Let rise again.  
Fry until golden brown and drain on paper towel. 

4 c. flour
3/4 c. sweet milk
3 eggs
1/3 c. sugar
3 tbsp. shortening
2 tsp. baking powder
Sprinkle of nutmeg (optional)

Sift flour, baking powder, salt, nutmeg and sugar together.  Then break in eggs. 
Mix in shortening and milk.  Roll a bit thicker than pie crust.  Make squares.  
Cut strips about 1/2 inch wide lengthwise to within 3/4 inch of the edge of square. 
To tangle, pick up dough by every other strip and give a slight twist.  Fry in deep
fat until brown.  Drain and sprinkle with sugar

2 eggs
2 1/2 tbsp. soft butter
3 1/2 c. flour
1/2 tsp. salt
1 c. sugar
3/4 c. milk
4 tsp. baking powder

Beat eggs until light and foamy.  Add sugar, 1/4 cup at a time and beat until 
thick after each addition.  Add butter and blend well.  Stir in milk.  Mix dry
ingredients together and adding 1/3 at a time stir into creamed mixture.  Cover 
and chill for 1 1/2 hours.  Roll out on lightly floured board to 1/4 inch thickness.
Cut with a doughnut cutter and fry in hot oil heated to 375 degrees. When brown on
one side, turn over and brown on the other side.  Drain well on paper towels.  When
cool sprinkle with powdered sugar, if desired.

More Cider Donuts

      Were you looking for a recipe for apple cider donuts?  I found this

in the 80's .  Hope the apple cider donut recipe is useful..

then re-coat it with oil and sugar. Repeat with remaining batter.
