Pumpkin Doughnuts ***
This is the best recipe for doughnuts, I really like it, hope you do. One tip when you go to cut the doughnuts, take a third of the dough, place rest back to keep cool, cook, then take remainder out and divide into two parts. Enjoy. Remember to be very careful working with hot oil.
1 cup sugar
2 tbs. soft butter
1 cup canned pure pumpkin
1 cup evaporated milk
1 tbs. lemon juice
4 ½ cups all-purpose flour
2 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
1 tsp. ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp. nutmeg
In a mixing bowl, beat eggs, sugar and butter. Add pumpkin and lemon juice; mix well. Combine the dry ingredients, add to pumpkin mixture alternately with milk. Cover and refrigerate for 2 hours. Turn
onto a lightly floured surface, knead 5-6 times. Roll out to 3/8 in. thickness. Cut with a 2 ½ doughnut cutter. In an electric skillet or deep fat fryer, heat oil to 375 D. A wok skillet would work as well. Use a good salad oil, cook doughnuts 3-4 at a time until golden about 3 minutes, turn once with a slotted spoon, cook a minute longer. Take out carefully and drain on paper towels. Cool and frost with confectioners sugar, orange juice and grated orange zest. If you are planning on keeping doughnuts for 3-4 days best to mix cinnamon and white sugar, to coat doughnuts. Or dip in confectioners sugar. They are good plain .

sound thereof, but canst not tell whence it cometh, and
whiter it goeth; so is every one that is born of the Spirit.
