This morning I made my mother-in-law, Marlene’s, homemade white donuts. They are so yummy! I have a picture from last year in Maine making donuts with the grandkids. This recipe comes from Marlene’s mother and I am sure it was handed down to her from many generations.
Marlene’s White Donuts
1 cup sugar, 2 eggs, 1 teaspoon nutmeg, 2 tablespoons Crisco oil, 1 teaspoon salt, 1 teaspoon baking soda, 1/4 teaspoon cream of tartar, 1 cup buttermilk, 1 teaspoon vanilla, 3 1/2 cups flour
Topping: Mix 4 tablespoons sugar with 1 teaspoon cinnamon
Combine all ingredients. If dough seems too moist, add up to 1/2 cup more flour to thicken. Roll out donuts to about 1/2 inch thickness and cut into donuts using donut cutter. Cook in hot oil until golden brown on both sides. Dust with sugar and cinnamon.
Yield: Approx. 24-30 depending on size of donut cutter
Life is short, eat more donuts!!!
