DIY Research: How to make Cake doughnuts

This is a delicious dessert that's easy and simple to make.

Cake doughnuts


2 cups all-purpose flour

½ cup white sugar

1 tablespoon baking powder

1 teaspoon salt

¼ teaspoon ground cinnamon

1 dash ground nutmeg

2 tablespoons melted butter

½ cup milk

1 egg, beaten

1-quart oil for frying


Heat oil in a deep-fryer to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).

Sift together flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, cinnamon, and nutmeg in a large bowl. Mix in butter until crumbly. Stir in milk and egg until smooth.

Knead lightly, then turn out onto a lightly floured surface. Roll or pat to 1/4-inch thickness. Cut with a doughnut cutter, or use two round biscuit cutters of different sizes.

Lay doughnuts in hot oil, a few at a time. Do not overcrowd the pan, or oil may overflow. Fry, turning once, until golden, about 3 minutes. Drain on paper towels.
