Buttermilk Donuts

2 C. buttermilk
2 eggs, beaten
1 C. sugar
5 C. flour
2 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. nutmeg
1/4 C. melted butter
Oil for frying
1/2 C. sugar for coating

Combine buttermilk, eggs, and sugar. Mix well. Sift together flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt, and nutmeg into a large bowl. Stir in buttermilk mixture, then melted butter. Roll dough out about 1/4 inch thick on floured board. Cut with doughnut cutter. Fry in hot oil (375 degrees) until golden brown on both sides. Drain on paper towels. Place 1/2 C. sugar in a small paper bag. Place donuts, one at a time, in bag and gently toss to cover with sugar. Makes 2 dozen donuts. Note: If you don't have buttermilk, you can add 1/4 C. white vinegar to 1 3/4 C. milk to equal 2 C.

We used the sugar to coat them as well as powdered sugar and chocolate frosting. They all were very tasty!
