1 cup sugar 
1 Tbsp nutmeg 
1 tsp baking soda 
½ tsp salt 
2 eggs
1 Tbsp shortening 
1 cup sour milk 
6 cups flour

Mix sugar, nutmeg, soda, salt, eggs, milk and shortening. Add enough flour to roll out dough on a floured surface and cut with doughnut cutter. Heat shortening to 375 degrees F. and drop doughnuts in, turning several times. Drain on soft crumpled paper. Cool and dust with powdered sugar, or granulated sugar and or with cinnamon, or drizzle with glaze (see below) if desired. Repeat with doughnut centers.

Note: milk can be soured by adding 1 Tbsp vinegar to 1 cup fresh milk.
