Was actually looking for a great cake recipe that was different, when I stumbled across this raised doughnut recipe.. I loved raised doughnuts.. But had never made any..so thought I'd fix it a whirl..I doubled the recipe..and got about3 dozen ..portions and sizes were a lot smaller back in the day..also; I rolled them in a cinnamon/sugar mix. (As some of you know, my confectioners sugar had gone stale, or I'd've made a glaze for some of them..will also put a lot more nutmeg in the next time I make them..
Add remaining flour, kneading in last portion on lightly floured surface.
Place in greased bowl, turning once to grease top. Let rise in warm place until doubled.
Turn out in lightly floured board. Roll dough 1/3" thick; cut.
Remove trimmings and form into ball. When doubled, roll out and cut.
Let cut doughnuts rise til very light (30-40 minutes). Leave uncovered so crust will form. Pick up on floured wide spatula and ease into deep hot fat (375°). Fry until golden brown, turning once. Drain. Makes 2 dozen..
