Making Doughnuts

It's a rainy Saturday morning here and what better fun to brighten the day than with home made doughnuts. I pulled out the trusty Kitchenaid mixer, rounded up my assistant and we got busy. These doughnuts are so easy to make and great fun to do with the littles.


3 1/4 cups all-puprose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmet
2 beaten eggs
2/3 cup granulated sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
2/3 cup milk
1/4 cup butter or margarine, melted
shortening or cooking oil for frying

Stir together flour, baking powder, salt, 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon, and nutmeg. In a large mixer bowl combine eggs; beat till thick. Combine milk and melted butter margarine. Add flour mixture and milk mixture alternately to egg mixture; beat just until blended after each addition.

On a lightly floured surface roll dough to 1/2 inch thickness. Cut with a floured 2 1/2 inch doughnut cutter. Fry in deep, hot fat (375 degrees) about 1 minute per side or till golden, turning once with a slotted spoon . Drain on paper towel. Cool. Put doughnuts in a plastic storage bag with either powdered sugar or cinnamon sugar and shake until coated. You could also make a simple icing out of powdered sugar and milk.

Simply Delicious.
Have a great day.
