I used to love sunday mornings when my aunt and uncle where in town. You could always count on them going into the city to pick up doughnuts. This is one of my favorite recipes as it is very versatile when doing flavor changes. they can be frosted, glazed, powdered, sugared. really anyway your personnel preferences lean. the nutmeg can also be changed to any spice you like or combination of spices. You can leave it without holes if you plan to fill them with custard or jelly. You can use regular milk or buttermilk to vary the flavor. I've even done a spicy version with mixed reviews but it was fun to try a new approach. prep time doesn't include rising time.
