Buttermilk Donuts

1 tablespoon active dry yeast
1/2 cup warm water
1/2 cup buttermilk
3 tablespoons shortening, melted
3 tablespoons sugar
2 1/2 to 3 cups self-rising flour
Vegetable oil
2 1/2 cups sifted powder sugar
1/4 cup milk

Dissolve yeast in warm water in a large bowl; let stand 5 minutes.
Add buttermilk, shortening, sugar & 1 1/2 c. flour; mix well. Add
enough remaining flour to make a soft dough.

Turn dough onto a floured surface & knead several times. Roll dough
to 1/2 inch thick & cut with a 2 1/2 inch doughnut cutter. Place
doughnuts on lightly floured surface, cover & let rise 45 minutes
or until double in bulk. Heat 2-3 inches of oil to 375'F. Drop in
4 or 5 doughnuts at a time. Cook about 2 minutes or until lightly
golden in color, turning once. Drain well on paper towels.

Combine powdered sugar with milk, stir until smooth. Dip each
doughnut in glaze while still warm; allow excess glaze to drip off.
Cool on wire rack or serve warm.

Yields about 14 doughnuts.
