Posted in : Breakfast on by : Daphne

Ingredients:

4 egg yolks, or 2 whole eggs1 C. sugar2 Tbsp. soft shortening3/4 C. sour milk3 1/2 C. flour2 tsp. baking powder1 tsp. salt1/4 tsp. nutmeg1/4 tsp. cinnamon

Instructions:

Turn onto floured board. Roll dough to about 1/3 inch thick. Let rise 20 minutes. Cut with doughnut cutter. Heat deep fryer to 380 degrees. Fat will cool as foods are dropped in. Keep fat at 370 degrees at all times. If grease is too hot or too cold, food will not turn out. Drop doughnuts in fat (as many as can easily be turned). Turn as they rise to surface and show color. Fry about 2 or 3 minutes completely brown on both sides. Lift with fork and place on absorbent paper. Cool and sprinkle with sugar.
