  • Mix sugar, eggs, and 2 tablespoons oil together in a mixing bowl.

  • Pour milk, vinegar, and baking soda into a liquid measuring cup; milk will become foamy. Add to sugar mixture; mix well. Mix in flour, baking powder, salt, and nutmeg.

  • Drop batter by teaspoonfuls into the hot oil until golden, about 1 minute per side, working in batches. Drain doughnuts on paper towels.

Cook's Note:

Make sure to use a heaping teaspoon of baking soda.

I made half a recipe, and made no other changes (other than sprinkling with a bit of powdered sugar for presentation). I'm confused . . . are these supposed to be like a funnel cake? The batter is SO wet, that when it hits the oil, it separates into a bunch of strands, kind of like a funnel cake. It was really hard to get a nice "ball" shaped donut, which is what I was expecting. Seems like the batter needs to be thicker, so that it holds together when dropped in the oil. I uploaded two photos - one plated nicely with the ones that were more donut like, and one that looks more like a plate of fried clam strips, so you can see what I mean. The taste was pretty good, but they are pretty greasy! Overall, not something that I'd make again. Sorry! Read More
