Sift dry ingredients together. Beat eggs, add vanilla and sugar, and beat well. Mix in butter. Alternately add milk and sifted ingredients to egg mixture to make a soft dough. Turn out on a floured board and knead lightly for about half a minute. Roll out to about 1/4-inch thickness and cut with doughnut cutter. Fry in hot oil (375 degrees F) until golden brown.
