Homemade Cake Donuts

  • 2.5-3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 2 tablespoons melted butter
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1 egg, beaten
Sift together 2.5 cups of flour, sugar, salt, baking powder, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Add in the melted butter and mix until crumbly. Stir in milk and egg until smooth. Add remaining flour if needed until dough is slightly sticky but able to be kneaded. Knead lightly on well floured surface. Roll out dough to 1/2" thick. Use donut cutter or 2 biscuit cutters to cut into donut shape. Fry in 375* oil, flipping once, until golden brown. Drain on paper towels. Serve plain, or roll in cinnamon-sugar or powdered sugar.

These donuts were very easy to make! I ended up making twisted donuts and donut holes along with the regular round shaped donuts.
