Sunday Morning Doughnuts

Sunday Morning Doughnuts
Sunday Morning Doughnuts

2 cups flour
2 tablespoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ginger
1/4 teaspoon cloves
1/4 teaspoon sea salt
1 large egg
1 tablespoon butter
1/2 cup milk
1/3 cup honey

Combine all ingredients in a large bowl and mix well (clean hands work great for the job).

Mixing The Ingredients

Turn onto a floured board and knead for a few minutes. Let rest.

Kneading The Dough

Roll out to about 1/2" thick and cut out with a doughnut cutter.

Rolling The Dough

Ready To Cook

Heat about 4" oil (vegetable oil works fine, we use lard) to 360°F

Fry 3 or 4 doughnuts at a time, turning when one side is browned - fry until both sides are nicely browned.

Doughnuts Cooking
Drain on paper towels or on a paper bag. Makes about one dozen doughnuts.


  1. It's been a long time since I've made donuts, but your recipe and photos makes me think I'll be making a batch soon. Thanks for your post. :)


  2. Thanks, Laura. They are a nice treat : )

    Love your web site and the fact that Hood didn't knock you down. Do you plan on doing cheeses as well, or just milk?

  3. Hi there! A number of years ago I spent a summer in Maine during which I spent countless hours driving around, tutoring children of low-income families and generally enjoying the opportunity to see some of the beautiful state. It's an experience that's always stuck with me. I've been looking around to find a great blog about Maine and I came across yours. I love your focus on sustainable living, home-oriented life and great recipes. I'll be following along and clicking on some links to help supplement the blog income!
