Recipe by Dienia B.
THIS is from a old cook book and its a rhyming recipe. It's just such a neat recipe I thought other people would enjoy it as much as me. It's a little bland--it may need more nutmeg. From History in the Baking, Minnesota.

This recipe is awesome! I just put flour on my hands and roll them into balls to make doughnut holes and afterwards rolled them in colored sugar for holiday colors. I tried a recipe the other day that was a little harder to work with and I must say, I will never use another doughnut recipe but this one.
- 1 cup sugar
- 1 cup milk
