White or table sugar, depending where you are in Europe.

table sugar, which would be medium sugar crystals, not powder-like

Vegetable based equivalent of lard, a solid fat (usually snow white in
color, in the US)

The secret? A device that provides a warm, high-humidity chamber called a
proofing box. And don't forget lots of dough conditioners and ascorbic acid,
too.

It's a solid vegetable fat, typically made solid through hydrogenation.
Sadly from what I know about doughnut production, it's really hard to use
a substitute in your recipe. Lard may be your best bet, but see if your
grocer can help you. I'd suggest asking for solid vegetable fat or
hydrolized vegetable fat. See if your grocer recognizes the American name
"Crisco" since that's the most likely exposure he or she might have to it.

As an aside - sind Sie Oesterreicher?

I partly disagree with that....
Indeed most donuts are put in the proofing box but the humidity
conditions are not the same as you did with normal bread.
If the cut doughnuts are placed in the normal proofer( with lots of
steam) it is taken when it has rised 2/3-3/4 of the desired proofing
time to let the crust dry or it will result in blister and other
defects later.
In addition a lot of the good donut mixes have conditioners but only a
few specialized recipes carry ascorbic acid. AS that make the yeast
raised doughnut chewy eating.
I have formulated institutional doughnut mixes that contain no
ascorbic acid, but aside from the basic ingredients we add, soya
flour, potato flour and some emulsifiers.
