Stir the vinegar into the milk; set aside for a few minutes until thick.
In a medium bowl, cream together the butter and sugar until smooth. Beat in the egg and vanilla until well blended. Sift together the flour, bicarbonate of soda and salt; stir into the sugar mixture alternating with the vinegar and milk. Roll dough out on a floured surface to about 1cm thickness. Cut into doughnuts using a round cutter. Let stand for about 10 minutes.
Heat the oil in a large deep pan to 190 C. Fry doughnuts in the hot oil until golden, turning over once. Drain on kitchen paper. Dust with sugar while they are still warm and serve immediately.
