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.
