3 1/2 c. all-purpose flour
1 c. sugar
3 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
1/4 tsp. nutmeg
2 tbsp. soft shortening
2 eggs
3/4 c. milk

Heat oil (2 to 4 inches) on high. Measure 1 1/2 cups flour and all remaining ingredients in large mixer bowl. Blend on low speed, scraping bowl constantly, stirring in remaining flour. Put dough on well floured surface. Roll around lightly to coat with flour. Roll dough 3/8 inch thick. Cut with floured doughnut cutter.

With wide spatula, slide doughnuts into hot oil, turning them when they rise to the surface. Cook 2 to 3 minutes or until golden brown on both sides. Remove carefully from oil; do not prick surface. Drain. Serve plain, sugared, or frosted. Makes 2 dozen doughnuts.

If using self-rising flour, omit baking powder and salt.
