So I've been searching for a good Homemade Donuts recipe. I finally think I have a good one. Now all I want is to get in my kitchen and get to making these. They sound soooo goood. Now I need to find great icing recipes so I can make ones with icing and then next get that yummy raspberry filling you put inside mmmmmmm
3 1/2 c. all-purpose flour 1 c. sugar 3 tsp. baking powder 1/2 tsp. salt 1/2 tsp. cinnamon 1/4 tsp. nutmeg 2 tbsp. soft shortening 2 eggs 3/4 c. milk
Heat oil (2 to 4 inches) on high. Measure 1 1/2 cups flour and all remaining ingredients in large mixer bowl. Blend on low speed, scraping bowl constantly, stirring in remaining flour. Put dough on well floured surface. Roll around lightly to coat with flour. Roll dough 3/8 inch thick. Cut with floured doughnut cutter. With wide spatula, slide doughnuts into hot oil, turning them when they rise to the surface. Cook 2 to 3 minutes or until golden brown on both sides. Remove carefully from oil; do not prick surface. Drain. Serve plain, sugared, or frosted. Makes 2 dozen doughnuts.
If using self-rising flour, omit baking powder and salt.
