New Years Day we started a new tradition and made doughnuts! This is my Grandma's recipe for cake doughnuts.
In a medium bowl, sift together:
3 1/2 cups flour
4 tsp baking powder
1 tbsp nutmeg
In a large bowl (or stand mixer), mix:
2 beaten eggs
1 cup sugar
1/2 tsp salt
3/4 cup milk (I used almond milk)
1 tsp vanilla
Gradually add dry mixture to wet and mix well.
Roll out dough and cut into doughnut shapes (or just make small, flat discs to make "doughnut holes").
Cook in hot olive oil, 1/2 inch or so deep, over medium heat. Flip so both sides cook to golden brown. Or if you have something you could deep fry them in, that would be better!
Place cooked doughnuts on a cooling rack, paper towels, or a brown paper bag to cool.
If desired, place cool doughnuts in a container with icing sugar, close lid and shake to coat doughnuts.
