Helena's Doughnuts

A good stick-to-the-ribs doughnut, frosted with maple cream. The spices can be increased, if a stronger flavor is desired.


4-1/2 cups sifted flour
3-1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
3 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla
3/4 cup sugar
3 tablespoons butter softened
3/4 cup milk


Sift dry ingredients together. Beat eggs, add vanilla and sugar, and beat well. Mix in butter. Alternately add milk and sifted ingredients to egg mixture to make a soft dough. Turn out on a floured board and knead lightly for about half a minute. Roll out to about ¼-inch thickness and cut with doughnut cutter. Fry in hot oil (375 degrees F) until golden brown. Drain and frost with maple cream.
