Doughnuts



3 eggs
1 cup sugar
2 tablespoons shortening
3/4 cup milk
3 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
1/8 teaspoon ground cinnamon
3 cups flour
sunflower oil for frying

chocolate gaze:
1 tablespoon butter
3 tablespoons cocoa powder
1/4 teaspoon vanilla
2-1/2 cups powdered sugar
3/4 cup milk

1.In a large mixing bowl add eggs, sugar, shortening, milk, baking powder, salt, nutmeg, cinnamon, mix well. Gradually add flour mixing until sticky dough forms.

2.On a non stick baking may add flour to the bottom. Place dough and an abundant amount of flour near you and on your hands. Roll dough around until it is not so sticky.

3.In a Saute pan on medium heat pour 1 inch sunflower oil and allow to heat up. Make dough balls the size of lemons then shape in a round. Put a hole in the middle with anything small you may have that will work ( I used a kids medicine cup). Carefully add doughnuts into hot oil. Allow to turn light golden and very carefully flip until the other side is the same. Keep holes and fry those as well. Meanwhile, drain grease on paper towels and allow to cool.

4.To make the glaze you need a medium mixing bowl add cocoa powder, vanilla, powdered sugar and milk then melt butter and add that, stir well.

Yields: 9 jumbos
