These "hole-less" treats came from my mother-in-law's recipe box. She would be 92 if she was still living. She raised 4 sons who were all born within 6 years of each other. I bet she rarely got to eat very many of these when she made them!

Ingredients

DOUGHNUTS:

1 1/2 c
flour
1/2 tsp
freshly ground nutmeg
1 3/4 tsp
baking powder
1/2 c
sugar
1/3 c
solid shortening
1/4 c
milk
1/2 c
grated apples

COATING:

1/2 c
melted butter
1/3 c
cinnamon sugar (1/3 c sugar and 1 tsp cinnamon)

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Grease muffins or mini muffin pans - whichever size you like best. Do NOT use cupcake liners in the pan.
2
Mix all the ingredients in a large bowl. Blend well, but gently. The doughnuts will thank your efforts by being tender.
3
Fill the muffin tins 2/3 full and bake 15-25 minutes at 350° depending on the size of muffin tins you use. Use the toothpick test to check for done-ness.
4
While the muffins are still hot, gently roll or dip them in the melted butter and then the cinnamon sugar mixture.
5
Hide them from your spouse and kids. Dole them out or they will be gone before you get the kitchen cleaned up.
