These delicious puffs tastes similar to a doughnut, they just melt-in-your-mouth...a real treat!


  1. In a deep-fat fryer, or a skillet, heat oil to 375 degrees.
  2. Sift the flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, salt and nutmeg in a bowl.
  3. Add oil, buttermilk and egg; beat until smooth.
  4. Drop batter by teaspoonfuls (too large puffs will not cook through) into hot fat.
  5. Fry only 4-5 puffs at a time until golden brown on all sides.
  6. Drain on paper towels.
  7. Glaze the warm puffs, or roll in cinnamon/sugar mixture.

It is missing the salt ingredient. I don't know if this would change the result. It didn't taste like a donut.
