3/4 cup milk
1 teaspoon salt
2 eggs, beaten
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 tablespoon shortening, melted
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
1 cup confectioners' sugar
2 tablespoons hot water
Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Lightly spray doughnut pan with cooking oil. In
bowl, mix together flour, sugar, baking powder and salt. Add shortening, eggs,
milk and vanilla. Beat until well blended. Fill each doughnut hole 2/3 full.
Bake 8 minutes or until tops spring back when lightly touched. Cool. Remove from

coconut. Doughnuts may also be dipped into cinnamon and sugar instead of glaze.
When the pan is cooled, wipe clean with cloth or paper towel and repeat process.
