Old Fashioned Doughnuts

Making homemade doughnuts is an experience I am sure you will enjoy. While the process is a little involved, the reward of freshly made doughnuts is well worth the hastle. Cutting out the doughnuts and creating different shapes is especially enjoyable. These donuts are rich and satisfying, as well as fun to make.

4 cups flour
4 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 eggs
3/4 cup + 2 Tablespoons sugar
3/4 cup milk
1/4 cup butter, melted

Cinnamon Sugar Topping - In a small bowl combine the following:
2 Tablespoons cinnamon
1/2 cup sugar

1. In a large bowl, combine flour, baking powder, cinnamon, nutmeg, and salt.
2. In a medium bowl, beat 2 eggs with an electric mixer. Slowly add the sugar until mixture is thick and has lightened in color.

3. On low speed, add milk and butter. Pour the wet ingredients over the dry and mix just until combined. Cover and Refridgerate for at least 2 hours and up to 24 hours.
4. Roll the chilled dough to 1/2 an inch thickness on a lightly floured surface. Cut doughnuts out with a doughnut cutter, or two different sized cookie cutters. Set cut doughnuts aside on a piece of wax paper and let rest 10-20 minutes before frying.

5. Using a deep fryer, or a pot filled with at least 3 inches of oil, heat oil to 375 degrees. Add 2-3 doughnuts and cook two minutes per side. Transfer cooked doughnuts to a cookie sheet lined with a double layer of paper towels.
6. Toss donuts in cinnamon sugar mixture if desired, or top with powdered sugar.
