Cake Doughnuts


There's nothing better than homemade doughnuts! I like cake donuts better than yeast donuts. This is how I make my favorite doughnuts for my family.

Real simple ingredients you already have in your kitchen. You can make the dough the night before and have them ready to go in the morning.

I douse them in cinnamon sugar or icing sugar or sometime plain...Happy Eating Sandra


1/2 cup white sugar

1 tablespoon baking powder

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1 cut butter milk

1 egg, beaten

1/4 cup butter, melted and cooled

2 teaspoons vanilla extract

2 quarts oil for deep frying

1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon

1/2 cup white sugar

In a large bowl, stir together the flour, 1/2 cup sugar, baking powder, salt, 1 teaspoon of cinnamon and nutmeg. Make a well in the center and pour in the milk, egg, butter, and vanilla. Mix until well blended. Cover and refrigerate for 1 hour.

Heat oil in a deep heavy skillet or deep-fryer to 370 degrees F (185 degrees C). On a floured board, roll chilled dough out to 1/2 inch thickness. Use a 3 inch round cutter to cut out doughnuts. Use a smaller cutter to cut holes from center. If you do not have a small cutter, use the mouth of a bottle.

Fry doughnuts in hot oil until golden brown, turning once. Remove from oil to drain on paper plates. Combine the remaining 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon and 1/2 cup sugar in a large resealable bag. Place a few warm donuts into the bag at a time, seal and shake to coat.
