    Lightly spiced with cinnamon and nutmeg. Preparation time is short and well worth the effort. Uses cake mix but still deep fried.

    Serves: 16 

    • 2 1/2 cups (310g) plain flour
    • 1/2 cup (100g) white sugar
    • 1 tablespoon baking powder
    • 1/2 teaspoon salt
    • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
    • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
    • 1 cup milk
    • 1 egg, beaten
    • 1/4 cup butter, melted and cooled
    • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
    • 2 quarts oil for deep frying
    • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
    • 1/2 cup white sugar

    1. In a large bowl, stir together the flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, 1 teaspoon of cinnamon and nutmeg. Make a well in the center and pour in the milk, egg, butter, and vanilla. Mix until well blended. Cover and refrigerate for 1 hour.
    2. Heat oil in a deep heavy skillet or deep-fryer to 185 degrees C. On a floured board, roll chilled dough out to 1cm thickness. Use a 9cm round cutter to cut out doughnuts. Use a smaller cutter to cut holes from center. If you do not have a small cutter, use the mouth of a bottle.
    3. Fry doughnuts in hot oil until golden brown, turning once. Remove from oil to drain on paper plates. Combine the remaining 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon and 1/2 cup sugar in a large resealable bag. Place a few warm donuts into the bag at a time, seal and shake to coat.
