Yield: 2 servings

\N \N Vegetable Oil
3⅓ cup Flour
1 cup Sugar
1 tablespoon Baking powder
½ teaspoon Salt
1 teaspoon Cinnamon
½ teaspoon Nutmeg
2 tablespoons Shortening
2 \N Eggs
¾ cup Milk

Heat oil (3-4 inches deep) to 375. Beat 1½ c. of the flour and the remaining ingredients in large mixer bowl on low speed, scraping bowl constantly, 30 seconds. Beat on medium speed, scraping occasionally, 2 min. Stir in remaining flour. Turn dough onto well floured, cloth covered board; coat lightly with flour. Roll gently ⅜ inch thick.

Cut with floured doughnut cutter. Slide doughnuts into hot oil with wide spatula. Turn doughnuts as they rise to surface. Fry until golden brown, 1 to 1 ½ min. on each side. Remove from oil and drain on paper towels. Serve plain, sugared, or frosted.

Buttermilk Doughnuts: Decrease baking powder to 2 teaspoons and beat in 1 teaspoon baking soda. Substitute buttermilk for milk. Do not use self-rising flour.
