Cake Doughnuts

My guys wanted homemade doughnuts today, so I obliged. ;0) This is my first attempt at making doughnuts, and I'm pleased with how they came out. I tossed some in cinnamon sugar and coated some with powdered sugar.

Cake Doughnuts

2 tablespoons unsalted butter, softened
1-1/2 cups sugar, divided
3 eggs
4 cups all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon baking powder
3 teaspoons ground cinnamon, divided
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg
3/4 cup 2% milk
Oil for deep-fat frying

•In a large bowl, beat butter and 1 cup sugar until crumbly, about 2
minutes. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition.
Combine the flour, baking powder, 1 teaspoon cinnamon, salt and
nutmeg; add to butter mixture alternately with milk, beating well
after each addition. Cover and refrigerate for 2 hours.

•Turn onto a heavily floured surface; pat dough to 1/4-in. thickness.
Cut with a floured 3-1/2-in. doughnut cutter. In an electric skillet
or deep-fat fryer, heat oil to 375°.

•Fry doughnuts, a few at a time, until golden brown on both sides.
Drain on paper towels. Combine remaining sugar and cinnamon; roll
warm doughnuts in mixture. Yield: about 2 dozen.
Peace and blessings,
