Yield: Makes 12-16.

A good stick-to-the-ribs doughnut, frosted with maple cream. The spices can be increased, if a stronger flavor is desired.

Ingredients:

  • 4-1/2 cups sifted flour
  • 3-1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 3 tablespoons butter softened
  • 3/4 cup milk

Instructions:

Sift dry ingredients together. Beat eggs, add vanilla and sugar, and beat well. Mix in butter. Alternately add milk and sifted ingredients to egg mixture to make a soft dough. Turn out on a floured board and knead lightly for about half a minute. Roll out to about 1/4-inch thickness and cut with doughnut cutter. Fry in hot oil (375 degrees F) until golden brown. Drain and frost with maple cream.
