     Grandma Crawford's Raised Doughnuts

Category   Breakfast - Brunch
Sub Category   None
Preptime   20 mins

1 cup sugar
4 tablespoons shortening (Crisco)
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup milk
2 eggs
1 teaspoon nutmeg
3/4 cup warm water
1 yeast cake or 2 1/4 teaspoons of loose yeast
5 cups flour

Scald milk and then add lard. Let cook and dissolve yeast in the warm water and then all everything together mix. Cover and place in a warm place to rise. Use fryolator or melt Crisco or Canola Oil in high sided frying pan. Rol out dough on flowered surface and use donut cutter to make donut shapes.
Drop a little bit of donut to see how the oil is doing for frying, If it is bulling, you can add 3-5 donuts - depends on size of pan.I use wooden shop sticks. When you put the donuts in the oil, the will sink, but will rise when cooked. When this happens take the chopsticks and flip to brown the other side.
It's an art form to know when the donuts are done - you don't want to burn them nor have the doughy in the middle - it's an individual trial and error based on what you are using to dry, amount of oil, temp (I would not go over 350 degrees). When done put in white papertowels to drain, I like to roll them in a mixture of cinammon and sugar - great served warm.
Serving Suggestions
Great at breakfast or for a brunch - great around the winter holiday times or a snowed in day.
