This is from bettycrocker.com. Hopefully these will be as tasty as the others we tried recently.

Cake Doughnuts

4 cups all-purpose flour
1 cup sugar
3 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
1 cup buttermilk
1/4 cup butter or margarine, melted
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 eggs, slightly beaten
Oil for deep frying

1. In large bowl, combine flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, salt and nutmeg; mix well. Add all remaining ingredients except oil for frying; stir just until dry ingredients are moistened. If desired, refrigerate dough for easier handling.

2. Fill large saucepan or electric skillet 2/3 full with oil. Heat to 375°F.

3. On well-floured surface, knead dough 1 to 2 minutes or until no longer sticky. Roll half of dough at a time to 1/2-inch thickness. Cut with floured doughnut cutter.

4. With pancake turner, slip doughnuts and holes into hot oil. Fry doughnuts and holes 1 to 1 1/2 minutes on each side or until deep golden brown. Drain on paper towels. If desired, roll doughnuts and holes in powdered or granulated sugar, cinnamon-sugar mixture or drizzle with glaze.

Yield: 30 doughnuts
