Homemade Donuts


1 cup milk
2 tbsp butter
1 tbsp sugar
1 tbsp brown sugar
1 pkg yeast
3 cups flour
1 tsp salt
1 egg
1.5 tsp nutmeg (optional)

In a glass bowl, put in melted butter and sugars. Pour milk over butter and sugars and cool to lukewarm. Add yeast, stirring until dissolved. Sift flour, salt (and nutmeg). Gradually add half the dry mixture to milk; add egg and beat well. Add remaining flour and leave dough in warm place for 1 hour. Knead gently, roll to quarter inch thickness and cut into diamonds. Allow to rise 30 minutes to 1 hour. Fry in oil at 375 degrees (between medium and medium high on a stove top). Dust with confectioners sugar or a sugar and cinnamon mix. Eat when warm.

Ash,
This recipe reminded me of the best eclair (sp?) I have ever had (made by you). Do you know how to make those still? I would love the recipe if you do! Thanks!
