Ingredients

  • 1 gallon water, heated to 100 to 110 degrees F
  • 1 pound compound yeast 
  • 3/4 cup sugar 
  • 1/2 cup salt 
  • 2 eggs 
  • 22 to 24 pounds all-purpose flour 
  • 24 ounces shortening, plus more for frying
  • Serving suggestions: granulated sugar, confectioners' sugar or cinnamon sugar

Directions

In the mixing bowl of a large stand mixer fitted with the dough hook, mix the water, yeast, sugar, salt and eggs. Add the flour and shortening, and mix for 10 minutes. Place the dough on a dough board, then cover and rest the dough for 40 minutes.

Preheat a deep fryer to 360 degrees F.

Cut the dough into 2-ounce squares and stretch each out to a 3-by-3-inch square. Drop the squares in the deep fryer and cook for about 2 minutes on each side. Place a few doughboys in a paper bag with some granulated sugar, confectioners' sugar or cinnamon sugar. Shake to coat and serve. Repeat for the remaining doughboys.
