Directions:
Beat eggs and let set 45 minutes before adding sugar. Add buttermilk, cream and vanilla. Add 1/2 of the flour. Reserve 1/2 of the flour to which you will add baking powder and baking soda. Fold this in at the very end. If your feel the dough is too thin-add a little more flour. Drop into hot lard on the stove in a black kettle on med high heat. Be sure you turn the donuts right away and keep turning them till done. This will help to eliminate bubbles on the donuts. A plastic donut maker works best.
*This recipe came from a sweet 93 year old women from Rothsay wanting this recipe to be passed on to many more generations. She made donuts every week for family, friends and neighbors.
