I'm taking my kitchen paperless (at least as far as non-bound recipes go) so welcome to my cookbook in a blog!

Baked Doughnuts

Baked Doughnuts
Makes 1 1/2 doz medium.

Do not over bake these!  Under is better, the baking process will finish with residual heat.

Put into Kitchen Aide and let sit for a few minutes:

1/3 C warm milk (100 degrees)
2 1/4 tsp yeast

Stir together and add to mixer:

1 C warm milk (100 degrees)
2 Tb butter
2/3 C sugar

With a fork, stir in, just until incorporated:

2 eggs
5 C flour
2 pinches nutmeg
1 tsp fine sea salt

With the dough hook, mix for a few minutes at medium speed.  Using flour or milk (just a tiny bit at a time) adjust the dough if too wet or too dry.  Get the dough to pull away from the sides of the bowl.

Knead a few times on a floured surface and shape into a ball.  Let rise until doubled.

Punch down and roll to 1/2" thick on floured surface.  Cut out big circles and place on parchment lined sheet.  Then cut out inner circles.  Cover and let rise 45 minutes.

Bake at 375 for 8-10 minutes (check at 8 minutes) until bottoms are barely golden.

Once baked and cooled for a minute or two dip each in a melted butter and mixed sugar/cinnamon.

1/2 C butter, melted
1 1/2 C sugar
1 Tb cinnamon

Eat immediately.
