According to my son, a perfect breakfast could either be doughnuts, waffles or pancakes, dipped or oozing in chocolate.
The 2 latter request would be easy but doughnuts are of different category. I have never done it in my life, I’ve just eaten it happily. So to grant a sickly boy’s craving, I tried. The kids and the hubby helped too but the first result was salty so I tried a second time…I am only using the baking powder version as I am not familiar with yeast.
2 1/4 cup flour
2 tsps of baking powder
1/2 tsp grated nutmeg
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup milk
1/2 tsp vanilla
1 tbsp unsalted, melted butter
1. Sift the dry ingredients.
2. Beat together eggs and sugar until fluffy. Add butter, mil,k and vanilla. Put in dry ingredients and mix until it forms a soft dough. Leave dough for a few minutes. If too soft.,chill it for an hour.
3. Heat clean oil in deep fryer. On a floured surface, roll the dough out into 3/8 inch thick and cut with donut cutters. If you don’t have a donut cutter then improvise with two circle cutters or something circle, make use of a smaller one for the hole. Fry in oil until golden, turn once.
4. Remove from oil, drain, and drain some more by putting them on absorbent paper. While still warm shake in sugar, sugar- cinnamon mixture, dip in glaze of choice, or dust with powdered sugar. I will post the glaze recipe soon. Enjoy!
I got a sweet “I love you mom” as a reward.

Keanna is a donut lover too. I may have to try this one G…soon! Ha ha! I may have to be extra sweet pa kay hubby to get me even a small oven for my baking interests.
Stef, all you need is a deep fryer for this 😉
