      When I was growing up every year on New Years Morning we would have these doughnuts. (Donuts)(We called them Donots)

      6 Eggs
      2 cups Sugar
      1/4 cup Butter (melted)
      1 teaspoon Lemon Extract or 2 teaspoons Lemon Juice
      7 1/2 cups Flour
      6 teaspoons Baking Powder
      2 teaspoons Salt
      1 teaspoon ground Nutmeg or Cinnamon
      1 cup Milk
      Oil for deep frying
      Sugar or Confectioners’ Sugar for coating (optional)

      In a mixing bowl, beat eggs, sugar and butter. Add lemon and mix well. Combine the dry ingredients and add to the bowl a little at a time alternating with the milk.

      Mix well each time. Cover with a lid or plastic wrap and refrigerate overnight.

      Divide dough in half. Roll out one portion to 1/4 inch thickness. Cut with a floured 1 1/2 inch round cookie cutter or a small drinking glass.

      Repeat with remaining dough. In an electric skillet or deep fryer, heat oil to 375 degrees F. Fry doughnuts for about 4 minutes or until golden brown, turning once with a slotted spoon.

      Drain. Eat and Enjoy!

      If you don’t like just plain doughnuts–Optional step: We always put sugar in a brown paper bag and dropped a few of the doughnuts into the bag, closed it by rolling the top down a little bit; and shook it to get the doughnuts coated. Others, put powdered (Confectioner’s) sugar on a plate or in a small bowl and rolled the doughnuts around in it to coat.

      Makes about 8 dozen.

      Thanks; Virginia
