Country.Chef's picture
  All purpose flour 3 Cup (48 tbs)
  Vegetable oil 1 (for frying)
  Sugar 1 Cup (16 tbs)
  Buttermilk 1⁄3 Cup (5.33 tbs)
  Eggs 2 Large
  Vegetable shortening 2 Tablespoon
  Baking powder 1 Tablespoon
  Baking soda 1 Teaspoon
  Salt 1 Teaspoon
  Ground nutmeg 1⁄2 Teaspoon
  Ground cinnamon 1 Teaspoon

1. In large bowl, combine 1 1/2 cups flour, 1/2 cup sugar, buttermilk, eggs, shortening, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and nutmeg. With mixer at medium speed, beat until smooth, about 1 minute, scraping bowl with rubber spatula. Stir in remaining 1 1/2 cups flour. Cover and refrigerate at least 1 hour for easier handling.
2. In deep-fat fryer or 6-quart Dutch oven, heat 3 to 4 inches oil over medium heat until temperature reaches 370°F on deep-fat thermometer. In large bowl, combine sugar and cinnamon; set aside.
3. Meanwhile, on well-floured surface, with floured rolling pin, roll dough 1/2 inch thick. With floured 2 1/2-inch doughnut cutter, cut out doughnuts. Reserve trimmings for rerolling.
4. Fry dough rings, four at a time, until golden, 2 to 3 minutes, turning once. With slotted spoon, transfer doughnuts to paper towels to drain. Toss in cinnamon-sugar mixture while still warm.
