                         Vegetable Oil
    3 1/3   c            Flour
    1       c            Sugar
    1       tb           Baking powder
      1/2   ts           Salt
    1       t            Cinnamon
      1/2   ts           Nutmeg
    2       tb           Shortening
    2                    Eggs
      3/4   c            Milk
 
   Heat oil (3-4 inches deep) to 375.  Beat 1 1/2 c. of
   the flour and the remaining ingredients in large mixer
   bowl on low speed, scraping bowl constantly, 30
   seconds.  Beat on medium speed, scraping occasionally,
   2 min.  Stir in remaining flour.  Turn dough onto well
   floured, cloth covered board; coat lightly with flour.
   Roll gently 3/8 inch thick. Cut with floured doughnut
   cutter.  Slide doughnuts into hot oil with wide
   spatula. Turn doughnuts as they rise to surface.  Fry
   until golden brown, 1 to 1 1/2 min. on each side.
   Remove from oil and drain on paper towels. Serve
   plain, sugared, or frosted.
   
   Buttermilk Doughnuts:  Decrease baking powder to 2
   teaspoons and beat in 1 teaspoon baking soda.
   Substitute buttermilk for milk.  Do not use
   self-rising flour.
