1 cup sugar
2 1/2 tbsp butter
3 eggs
1 cup milk
3 1/2 cups flour (use just enough to roll out - too much makes heavy doughnuts)
1/4 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp nutmeg
1 tsp vanilla
1 1/2 tsp salt.
5 tsp baking powder
Peanut oil for frying

Cream butter. Add 1/2 of the sugar. Beat eggs in a separate bowl until light; add milk and remaining sugar to eggs, and combine 2 mixtures. Add flour mixed and shifted with baking powder, salt and spices. A trifle more flour may be needed so dough can be handled. Toss 1/3 of mixture onto floured board and roll out 1/4" thick. Cut with donut cutter or 2 different sized round cutters and fry in hot deep fat (peanut oil is best). Turn doughnuts over immediately after they rise to top of fat. Fry until nicely browned and drain on rack with absorbent paper (grocery paper bags work fine). Best eaten the same day. Can be frozen and warmed later.
