Carry On Parish Tradition!

Jolly Hormillosa // Quarantine Comfort


April 2  

My boys love coffee and donut Sunday at our Parish, so my husband and I whipped up a batch of these EASY homemade ones to carry on the tradition! 
Plain Cake Doughnuts

2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 cup white sugar
1 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 dash ground nutmeg
2 tablespoons melted butter
1/2 cup milk
1 egg, beaten
1 quart oil for frying

Heat oil in deep-fryer to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).  In a large bowl, sift together flour, sugar, salt, baking powder, cinnamon and nutmeg. Mix in butter until crumbly.  Stir in milk and beaten egg until smooth. Knead lightly, then turn out onto a lightly floured surface. Roll or pat to 1/2 inch thickness. Cut with a doughnut cutter or use two round biscuit cutters of different sizes.  Carefully drop doughnuts into hot oil, a couple at a time. Do not overcrowd pan or oil may overflow. Fry, turning once, for 3 minutes or until golden. Drain on baking rack.I use our medium all-clad sauce pan to fry. That way I can get 2 or so inches of oil without using the entire bottle. Hah.  Just do two at a time.  When they cool a bit put topping (cinnamon-sugar, powder sugar) in a small paper bag or plastic zip-lock and shake.  Or pour Glaze over them while on the rack.  Glaze – powder sugar and milk – I just wing it. Not sure what the measurements are.
