    Cynna's Note:

    Good old A.B. sure does know his way around the kitchen! Here's a great recipe from Good Eats I thought I'd post. We're making these right now and I cannot wait to eat some! You will need a kitchen scale for this, as you have to weigh the flour. Cooking time includes time to rise.

    Ingredients:

    Servings:

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Place the milk in a medium saucepan and heat over medium heat just until warm enough to melt the shortening.
    2. 2
      Place the shortening in a bowl and pour warmed milk over. Set aside.
    3. 3
      In a small bowl, sprinkle the yeast over the warm water and let dissolve for 5 minutes.
    4. 4
      After 5 minutes, pour the yeast mixture into the large bowl of a stand mixer and add the milk and shortening mixture, first making sure the milk and shortening mixture has cooled to lukewarm.
    5. 5
      Add the eggs, sugar, salt, nutmeg, and half of the flour.
    6. 6
      Using the paddle attachment, combine the ingredients on low speed until flour is incorporated and then turn the speed up to medium and beat until well combined.
    7. 7
      Add the remaining flour, combining on low speed at first, and then increase the speed to medium and beat well.
    8. 8
      Change to the dough hook attachment of the mixer and beat on medium speed until the dough pulls away from the bowl and becomes smooth, approximately 3 to 4 minutes.
    9. 9
      Transfer to a well-oiled bowl, cover, and let rise for 1 hour or until doubled in size.
    10. 10
      On a well-floured surface, roll out dough to 3/8-inch thick. Cut out dough using a 2 1/2-inch doughnut cutter or pastry ring and using a 7/8-inch ring for the center whole.
    11. 11
      Set on floured baking sheet, cover lightly with a tea towel, and let rise for 30 minutes.
    12. 12
      Preheat the oil in a deep fryer or Dutch oven to 365 degrees F.
    13. 13
      Gently place the doughnuts into the oil, 3 to 4 at a time. Cook for 1 minute per side.
    14. 14
      Transfer to a cooling rack placed in baking pan.
    15. 15
      Allow to cool for 15 to 20 minutes prior to glazing, if desired.

      I made these this morning, very easy recipe to follow and the results were AMAZING!!! The measurements are spot on. I glazed some and frosted the others with a chocolate glaze type frosting. My family loved them, will defiantly make them again!
