Donut Recipe (that I would never intentionally keep from anyone)

Vegetable Oil (enough for 2-3 inches in whatever pan you're using.)

3 1/3 c. flour
1 c. sugar
3 t. baking powder
1/2 t. salt
1/2 t. cinnamon
1/4 t. nutmeg
2 T shortening
2 eggs
3/4 c. milk

Heat 2-3 inches oil to 375 F
Mix 1 1/2 c. flour (out of the 3 1/3 c.) and everything else on low speed for 30 seconds, med. speed for 2 min. (I use my wooden spoon to mix.) Stir in rest of flour, roll to 3/8" (on a well-floured board, but shake extra flour off before putting them in oil). Cut, slide into oil. Turn when they rise to the surface. Fry 1 - 1 1/2 minutes. Drain on paper towels.

Of COURSE you can sprinkle with powdered sugar or roll them in cinnamon/sugar, but they are quite yummy alone and especially right out of the oil and warm. Mmmmmm....

Once they're cooled, 10 seconds in the microwave restores their former glory.

Please make them today and eat the whole batch, so that I'm not the only one with a muffin top. :)
