Donuts (1/09/09)

The donuts are so easy to make and they are absolutely delicious!!!

You will need:
1 cup sugar
3-1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp nutmeg
1/2 tsp salt
4 cups flour
2 eggs (I only had 1 egg, so I substituted 2 T applesauce for the other turned out really good)
1 cup milk
3 T melted margarine (or butter)
Oil for deep frying

1. Mix together sugar, baking powder, cinnamon, nutmeg, salt, and flour.
2. Beat eggs (or egg and applesauce) and stir into dry ingredients.
3. Mix in milk and melted margarine.
4. Roll dough about 1/4 inch thick on a floured surface.
5. Cut with a donut cutter. If you don't have a donut cutter, use a glass and a pop bottle cap for the center cut-out.
6. Heat oil to 375. Fry several donuts at a time (I did 4 at a time, it depends on how big your deep fryer is).
7. Drain on cooling rack or paper towels.
8. Decorate as desired...powdered sugar, cinnamon and sugar, or frosting work well.

This recipe made me 31 donuts and 34 donut holes.

Mix ingredients

Roll out dough and cut circles

I used an old play-dough circle cutter to cut out the donut holes

Put them in the oil

They should flip on their own

I let the donuts drain a bit before I put them on the cooling rack


  1. Those are off limits for me, but they sure look good!

  2. That brings back wonderful childhood memories. My mother used to make donuts every now and then when I was younger. They were SO yummy.

  3. Do they make low carb donuts????
