Sekoya's Super Sunday Doughnuts

This recipe came from one of Sekoya's coloring books and was our Sunday afternoon activity. They turned out better than I had thought they would!

2 c all purpose flour
1/2 c white sugar
1 tsp salt
1 Tbsp baking powder
1/4 tsp cinnamon
1 dash nutmeg
2 Tbsp melted butter
1/2 c milk
1 egg, beaten
1 quart oil for frying

Heat oil in deep fryer to 375 degrees

In a large bowl sift together flour, sugar, salt, baking powder, cinnamon and nutmeg. 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.

Carefully drop doughnuts into hot oil, a few at a time. Do not overcrowd pan or oil might overflow. Fry, turning once, for 3 minutes or until golden brown. Drain on paper towels.
