This recipe comes from the St. Sava cookbook. The recipe was submitted by Vi Sekulich.

The original recipe called for 1 oz. yeast, but I changed it to only being one packet of active dry yeast.

I made this as a half and the consistency of the dough is close to my favorite memories of this serbian style donut, but I may need to adjust some things to get the right texture, especially if I make it as a half-order.
