Buttermilk Donuts Recipe
  • Beat eggs until light; add sugar and beat until fluffy.
  • Mix in buttermilk, melted butter, and vanilla.
  • In a separate bowl, combine the flour, nutmeg, baking soda, baking powder, and salt.
  • Blend dry ingredients into the egg and buttermilk mixture.
  • Preheat the Crisco or oil to 375° F. in a skillet on the stovetop or in an electric skillet. Be sure there is enough oil in the pan to allow the donuts to float while frying them.
  • Fill drop donut maker with dough and start dropping donuts into the preheated oil.
  • Fry until the donuts are browned on one side and then turn over; fry until browned on second side.
  • Remove from the oil and place on paper towels to cool.
  • When cooled, store in an air-tight container.
