Homemade cake donuts

These donuts are in no way healthy, which is why Dave and I make them so infrequently.  They taste wonderful though, so go ahead and treat yourself once in awhile.

Homemade cake donuts


2 cups self-rising flour

1/2 cup sugar

1 teaspoon salt

1/2  teaspoon cinnamon

1/4 teaspoon nutmeg

2 tablespoons melted butter

1/2 cup milk

1 egg

powdered sugar

Pour about 2 inches of oil into a heavy saucepan.  Carefully heat on high heat until a small drop of dough dropped into the oil sizzles.

Meanwhile, whisk together the flour, 1/2-cup sugar, salt, cinnamon, and nutmeg.  In a separate bowl, whisk together the melted butter, milk, and the egg.  Pour the egg mixture into the flour mixture.  Stir together lightly, and then turn out onto a lightly floured bowl, and knead several times.  Roll or pat the dough to about 1/2-inch thick.  Use a small round cutter to cut the dough into shapes.  Drop the dough circles into the hot oil.  Fry 3-4 donuts at a time, turning once, until they are light brown – about 3 minutes.  Drain on paper towels.  Roll while still warm in powdered sugar.   Makes 12-14 donuts.
