Buttermilk Doughnuts

Makes 7 doughnuts

1/2 c sugar
1 egg
1/4 tsp baking soda
1/4 c buttermilk
3/4 tbsp butter, melted
1/4 tsp vanilla extract
1/4 tsp baking powder
7/8 c flour
1/16 tsp (dash) nutmeg


Mix sugar and eggs. Beat till smooth.

Add butter, vanilla, buttermilk. Mix.

Add dry ingredients. Mix. Dough is very sticky, it is best to make this recipe in a kitchenaid.

Fridge overnight.

Next day, roll out dough 1/4 in thick (you will need to liberally add flour to get this to work), cut with two biscuit cutters to get doughnut shape, deep fry 375 F for 1.5-2 min until golden brown.

Personally, I make munchkins – spoon up the dough with a teaspoon and put into hot oil. Cook until golden brown. Drain on paper towel.

When cool, put confectioner’s sugar in paper bag, and add doughnuts or numchkins and shake to coat.

Can also add cinnamon to confectioner’s sugar if you like.

You can also make crullers with this dough, basically you roll out the dough, cut it into 1/2 inch wide strips, braid, and pinch the ends. I’ve never done this, for me doughnuts are hard.
