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.
Yummy! Thanks for sharing.
Hi, I found your site from the Heart of the Matter Blogroll. We are homeschoolers from the state of Georgia.
Oh, I am featuring the SpellQuizzer software giveaway on my GAhome2mom blog. Come check it out!
Of course those are healthy, they have eggs and milk and wheat (did you use whole wheat?), yeah, they’re healthy!
Since you’re using sugar on top, I bet you could get away with using 1/2 (or even 1/3) of the sugar in the dough. And if you baked them, they’d be even healthier but that does change the texture a lot. I like the fried ones much better. I’ve made tiny donuts from leftover pizza dough of all things so I know kids (and big people too) will gobble them up even without sugar in the dough.
