4 cups sifted flour
Sift flour once, measure, add baking powder, soda, nutmeg and salt and sift again. Beat eggs to a froth, add sugar gradually and beat well. Add shortening and blend. Add sifted dry ingredients alternately with the buttermilk, mixing until smooth after each addition. Turn out onto a lightly floured board or pastry canvas and roll 1/3 inch thick. Cut with a floured 2 1/2-inch doughnut cutter and let stand 5 minutes. Drop into deep hot fat preheated to 375 degrees F. Turn when rounds rise to the top of the fat and continue to turn occasionally as the doughnuts cook. When lightly browned, remove from the fat and drain on absorbent paper. & Dust with sugar while still warm if desired.
