Preparing the doughnuts:
Mix together all the ingredients and roll the dough into golf-ball sized pieces.

Put about 1 inch of oil in the bottom of a pan or Dutch oven and put pan over medium heat. Drop dough into hot oil, and fry until golden brown. Turn over and continue cooking over low heat until the other side is golden brown. Remove doughnuts to rack to drain of excess oil.

Place doughnuts into simmering syrup for 3 to 5 minutes.

Remove from syrup and serve immediately.
