Doughnuts

"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."

    So, I'm sick and in the hospital, but my husband has been cooking for the ZWT9 challenges and for himself and our kids. They really enjoyed this easy donut recipe for breakfast and he said it was easy to prepare. I will definitely be making this for our family when I get home and recooperated. Made for team Tasty Testers during ZWT9.

    DH took on this recipe for us this morning, and it did not disappoint. We did reduce it by half, and still got 12 + doughnuts. He did have to add a bit of flour (1-2 TBSP.) as the dough was sticky, but it is humid as heck here, so that may have also contributed to the dough's viscosity. We used the deep fryer on 350º and they cooked for 4-5 minutes. We then shook them in some sugar and cinnamon sugar. Next time, I may make a glaze, but they were good, as is. Thanks for sharing a great recipe, Dienia B.

    GROSS!!!!!!! These "doughnuts" are more like a cross between pretzels and a loaf a bread. Don't serve these to company!
