From preparation to the plate, this recipe takes roughly 2 hours and 15 minutes.
Place 2 cups of the flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt in the bowl of a mixer fitted with the paddle attachment.
Mix on low until combined, then add the shortening and mix until worked in.
Whisk together the buttermilk, egg and yolk, and vanilla in a small bowl and then add to the flour mixture and beat until smooth. Beat in remaining 1 cup flour until combined. Cover and refrigerate for at least 1 hour and up to 6 hours.
Turn dough onto a floured surface and roll to 1/2-inch thickness. Using a 3-inch round cookie cutter, cut dough into rounds. Using a 1-inch cookie cutter, cut hole from center of each round. Gather scraps and re-roll dough, cutting additional doughnuts until dough is used up.
Heat 5 inches of oil in a large pot to 350 degrees F.
Add doughnuts, 3 at a time, and fry until golden on both sides, turning once, about 4 to 5 minutes total.
Transfer to a plate lined with paper towels.
When doughnuts have cooled, dip tops of doughnuts in the mixture and place on baking racks until the praline sets up slightly.
Combine sugar, water, vanilla bean and seeds in a medium saucepan over high heat and cook until dark amber color.
Remove from heat and slowly whisk in the cream, butter and salt. Return to the heat and whisk until smooth.
Remove from the heat and whisk in the bourbon. Strain.
Let cool until slightly thickened.
Recommended wine: Riesling, Sparkling Wine, Zinfandel
Riesling, Sparkling Wine, and Zinfandel are my top picks for Southern. In general, there are a few rules that will help you pair wine with southern food. Food-friendly riesling or sparkling white wine will work with many fried foods, while zinfandel is great with barbecued fare. You could try Zilliken Rausch Riesling Spatlese. Reviewers quite like it with a 4.7 out of 5 star rating and a price of about 20 dollars per bottle.
Zilliken Rausch Riesling SpatleseFruit driven finesse is marked with a delicate florality in this late-picked Riesling. Notes of vineyard peach, grapefruit, juicy lemon and ripe passion fruit come together on a creamy, concentrated palate rich with melon and candied lemon peel. Stunning exchange of racy acidity and layered sweetness together form a perfectly poised whole. The long, juicy finish and fantastic vintage hint at a beautiful future yet to come.
