What kind of oil for frying donuts?

La Dolce Vita | Dec 1, 2004 08:38 PM

I'm making homemade donuts, with my new deep-fryer. What kind of oil would be compatible with these sweet confections? I'd like to avoid peanut oil, since some of my guests are allergic. Also, I'm reluctant to melt a can of solid white shortning (trans-fat and all that), so I'd prefer somethig vegetable, if possible.

Any suggestions? What do donut shops use?

Thank you!
