HOT DOUGHNUTS FOB
The ingredients for four dozen
medium-sized doughnuts are one
cup of sugar, one-half cup of but
ter, two eggs, one pint of warm
water, one-half teaspoon, each, of
soda and salt, a dash of nutmeg.
Mix with flour like soft bread
dough. Let it rise over night.
Turn out on a floured board, roll,
cut one inch thick, tut into rings.
Let rise until very light. Fry in
hot fat, turning often. When
cold roll in powdered sugar. If
these doughnuts are kept in a jar
and heated and rolled in sugar as
they are needed they will seem
like freshly cooked doughnuts.
Another way to have fresh
doughnuts every day is to make
the dough as directed and cut off
enough each morning to roll out
and fry for breakfast, keeping the
rest of the dough on ice, which
chills the yeast plant and retards
rising. However, the cook must
rise early to raise the dough.
The first method is 1 easier,
Two well-beaten eggs, one cup
ful of sugar, one cupful of sweet
milk, one level teaspoonful of
salt, one-half nutmeg, grated
rind of lemon, three- cupfuls of
flour and two heaping teaspoon
fuls of baking powder. Drop
from a teaspoon into boiling fat.
The doughnuts will rise in round
balls. Fry until a golden brown.
Roll in sugar.
