  • Add flour mixture and milk mixture alternately to egg mixture, beating on low after each addition just until combined. (Stir in the last of the flour mixture if needed.) Cover and chill dough 1 hour or until easy to handle.

  • Lightly sprinkle a work surface with additional flour mix. Roll dough until 1/2 inch thick. Using a floured 2 1/2-inch donut cutter, cut out dough. Dip cutter into flour mix between cuts and reroll scraps as needed.

  • In a large heavy saucepan heat 1 to 2 inches oil to 365°F. Fry donuts, two or three at a time, 2 minutes or until golden, turning once. Remove with a slotted spoon and drain on paper towels. Cool donuts slightly and coat with additional granulated sugar (cool completely to coat with powdered sugar).

Prepare as directed, except stir 1 tsp. ground cinnamon, 1/2 tsp. ground ginger, and 1/8 tsp. ground cloves into the flour mixture and coat warm doughnuts in a mixture of 2/3 cup granulated sugar and 1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon.Nutrition analysis per serving: same as above except 353 calories, 52 g carbohydrate, 22 g total sugar, 3% iron
