Raised Doughnuts

1 cup scalded milk
2/3 cup sugar
3 Tbsp. butter
1 tsp. salt
1 yeast cake
2 Tbsp. lukewarm water
5 cups flour
2 eggs
1 tsp. nutmeg

Add sugar, butter, and salt to scalded milk. When warm, add yeast cake mixed with warm water. Add enough flour to make a sponge (about 2 cups); set in warm place to rise.

When light, add well-beaten eggs, nutmeg, and enough flour to make a soft dough. Cover and let rise until double in bulk.

Knead until free of large bubbles. Roll out on a slightly flowered board to 1/2 inch thick. Cut with a doughnut cutter, cover, and set in a warm place to rise again until double in bulk.

Put them top side down in deep hot fat, 375 deg. Fry till light brown on each side. Powdered sugar.
