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..
