We made some doughnuts at home this morning. No, these aren’t healthy! Yes, they’re healthier than store-bought. Well, anyway, enjoy….
2 1/2 cups flour
2 tsp. baking powder
1 cup sugar
1 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
1/2 tsp cloves
1/4 tsp. nutmeg
1 tsp. vanilla
1 tbsp. softened butter
1 cup milk
Sift together all dry ingredients. Beat eggs, then add butter, vanilla and milk. Beat together 1/2 minute. Add dry ingredients, beat until smooth.
Deep fry in coconut oil at 375 degrees for approximately 1 minute each side, turning to brown evenly. Remove from oil and drain on paper towels.
We dusted half of ours with powdered sugar and the other half with cinnamon-sugar. We couldn’t decide which we liked better!
Yield: The recipe says one dozen, but honestly, I’d say it made at least double that.
