Recipe type: Dessert
Ingredients
  • 1½ cups all purpose flour
  • ⅓ cup sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon cinnamon
  • ¼ teaspoon nutmeg
  • ½ cup milk
  • 2 tablespoons oil
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 egg
  • Oil for frying
  • ½ cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
Instructions
  1. In a medium to large heavy saucepan, heat 2 to 3 inches oil to 375. (Pat note: make sure you heat it to the right temperature!)
  2. Combine flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, cinnamon and nutmeg. Stir in milk, oil, vanilla and egg with a fork until dry ingredients are moistened.
  3. Drop by teaspoonfuls into hot oil. (Pat note: make sure it really is just by TEASPOONful.) You can cook 5 to 6 at a time. Fry doughnut drops 60-90 seconds on each side until deep golden brown. Drain on paper towel.
  4. Mix ½ cup sugar and 1 teaspoon cinnamon together and roll hot doughnuts in the sugar mixture.
  5. The recipe says this makes 30-36 doughnut drops. I suppose it’s right, but I can’t believe how FAST we ate them, it seemed like about 10!
