Campfire Doughnuts

  • 3 c. flour
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 c. sugar
  • 3/4 c. buttermilk
  • 2 T. shortening
    • 1 t. baking powder
    • 1 t. baking soda
    • 1 t. salt
    • 1/2 t. nutmeg


    Make a dough using all of the ingredients

    Knead the dough thoroughly and roll out into 3 inch pieces no more than inch thick.

    Heat shortening in your skillet until melted and smoking ( depth of about 1 to 1 inches). Drop the doughnut batter into the oil carefully and cook. The doughnuts will expand and should cook within seconds.

    If the oil is too cool they will become oily, too hot and they will burn. A little experimentation will produce a delicious treat. Roll them in sugar and cinnamon for added flavor.
