the original halloween doughnut recipe

unfortunately, i have no pictures of these... yet. but here is great grandma julia's classic recipe:

beat till frothy:
3 eggs

add, beating well:
1 1/4 c. sugar

add, stirring well:
2 T. melted butter
1 c. milk

stir in:
1 t. baking soda
2 t. baking powder
1/4 t. salt
1 t. nutmeg
2 t. cinnamon (i like to add a little more)
4 c. flour

mix well—can chill for easier handling. Fry at 375° until done.

my sisters like to eat these plain, but my old roomate and i like to make cinnamon sugar topping or a glaze.

any of the doughnuts i've made, yeast or cake seem to only really be good the day that you make them. they lose their light texture after they cool off and sit for too long. let me know if any of you guys try either of these recipes!
