Try just swinging it with more thrust in the hips and getting your arms around more effectively, practice daily even if you're not hitting a ball, but DO NOT use a doughnut if you want speed it will actually just slow you down.

Does a corked bat help the power of the hit?

corking makes the bat lighter so you can swing it faster therefore generating greater speed at the point of impact with the ball, transferring more speed to the ball as it leaves the bat, causing the ball to fly further (provided you don't break the bat and look like a fool - corking a bat weakens the bat as well as making it lighter).
