- • 4 cups flour
- • 1 cup sugar
- • 1 1/2 teaspoon salt
- • 2 tablespoon baking powder
- • 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
- • 1 cup milk
- • 2 eggs, beaten
- • 1 quart oil for frying
Powdered sugar and/or cinnamon sugar (I liked to switch off, while grandpa stuck with plain dunked into his coffee)
Pre-heat oil in a large Dutch oven or pot to approximately 375 F.
Combine flour, sugar, salt, baking powder and nutmeg.
Stir in milk and eggs.
(This step was done by hand on a large floured cutting board in grandma’s kitchen) Divide dough into easy to work with portion and spread out to about 1/4 inch thickness.
Cut out donuts (Grandma use two biscuit cutters to cutout donuts. She did not make donut holes so she just kept re-using the center piece.)
Once you have cut out all your donuts drop them into hot oil, just a few at a time. Fry about 3 minutes, turn and fry for about 3 more minutes or until golden brown.
Drain: (Grandma always tore a brown paper bag and set that on a plate to drain the donuts… never really a necessary step since my grandfather and I ate them as fast as she could make them, which always created plenty of giggles.)
Sprinkle with powdered sugar, cinnamon-sugar, or neither, just plain.
Eat and enjoy!
