Melted chocolate for topping


In a large bowl whisk together flour, cinnamon, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and sugar. In another bowl, whisk together eggs, yogurt, and liqueur. Using a wooden spoon, add the dry ingredients to the egg mixture, mixing until just combined.

Pour 2 inches of oil into a large deep skillet. Heat oil until a drop of water sizzles. Fill a 1/4 cup measuring cup with batter and carefully place in hot oil. Fry doughnuts until lightly browned on both sides. Transfer to a plate lined with paper towels.

When cool enough to handle, place doughnuts on a serving platter and dust with confectioner’s sugar or spread lightly with melted chocolate.
