Or- Fried in oil, covered in sugar- What's not to like?
Make sure the oil is hot enough by tossing a very small pinch of dough in. It should bubble and float right away. It doesn't take long to fry up a batch. Really- in the time it takes you to cross the room to get your camera and turn it on, you could already have burned up a pan full of dough. I'm just saying. Use a slotted spoon or tongs and flip them a couple times to brown evenly.
