Cake Doughnuts

4 cups flour
1 cup sugar
1 tbsp. baking powder
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
1/2 tsp. nutmeg
1 cup buttermilk
1/4 cup margarine, melted
1 tsp. vanilla (Madagascar)
2 eggs, slightly beaten
oil for deep frying

In a large bowl, combine flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, salt and spices. Stir in remaining ingredients until dry ingredients are moistened.

Fill large sauce pan or electric skillet 2/3 full with oil. Heat to 375 degrees. On well floured board knead dough 1 to 2 minutes or until dough is no longer sticky. Roll half the dough to 1/2 inch thickness. Cut with floured doughnut cutter. Slip doughnuts into hot oil, frying 1 to 1 1/2 minutes per side or until golden brown. Drain on paper towels. Shake doughnuts in paper brown bag with sugar, cinnamon and sugar or powder sugar as desired.

~For Halloween doughnuts I frost with orange and chocolate butter frostings.

Madagascar Vanilla (purchase at Chefs Catalog) Of all the vanilla's I've used this is my favorite. Once you've tried it you won't go back!
