Donuts

Ingredients

  • 2 Tbsp yeast dissolved in 1/2 very warm water 
  • 1/2 cup sugar 
  • 1/2 cup sweet cream, scalded (you may use milk instead, but your donuts will not turn out as light and fluffy) 
  • 1 egg 
  • 1/2 tsp nutmeg 
  • 1/2 tsp salt 
  • About 1 cup flour*

Directions

Mix first six ingredients and add about one cup flour. Let the dough sit until it forms a light sponge texture – just a few minutes. Add enough flour to stiffen but not as stiff as bread (see note below). Let rise until double. Roll and cut; let rise again. Fry in hot oil until golden. 

*There is no exact amount for flour, just add until dough comes together to form a sticky, not smooth, and elastic like bread dough.
