Cut size determines number of doughnuts.
Double or triple the recipe for more.
2 cups white flour
1/2 cup sugar
1 teaspoon salt
3 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
dash of grated nutmeg
2 tablespoons melted butter
1/2 cup milk
1 whole egg, beaten
Sift dry ingredients together, then add butter. Add milk to the beaten egg and pour into first mixture.
Knead the mixture lightly, then roll or pat on a well-floured board or pastry sheet. Roll to 1/4 inch thick and cut out doughnuts with a doughnut cutter.
Fry doughnuts in 3-4 inches of oil which has been preheated to around 360 degrees. Cook only a few at a time, turning often until evenly browned on both sides. Drain on a rack over a cookie sheet or on paper toweling.
To coat with plain sugar and cinnamon, put the sugar mixture in a paper bag and shake a few doughnuts in it at a time. Doughnuts may also be frosted.
