Doughnuts (1 Lb Breadmaker)

1 1/2 tsp instant yeast
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 tsp nutmeg
1 tsp salt
1/4 cup sugar
1 tsp grated lemon rind
1/4 cup butter or margarine
1 egg
1/2 cup milk or water

Prepare ingredients using the BASIC DOUGH setting. When dough
cycle is complete, place dough in a generously greased bowl. Roll
dough to coat with shortening. Cover and let rest 30 minutes.

Shapes: (a) On a lightly floured surface, roll dough 1 cm (1/4")
thick. Cut with doughnut cutter or drinking glass. (b) Dough may
be shaped into 12 round balls. (c) Dough may be shaped into
twisters. Divide dough into 12 balls. Roll each into a log between
your hands, about 10 inches long. Fold in half and twist together.

Place doughnuts on a greased sheet, cover and let rise until nearly
double in size, (30 - 40 minutes). Deep fat fry in 375 Degrees F.
vegetable oil until golden, turning once. Drain, on paper toweling.
Sprinkle with granulated sugar, cinnamon sugar, or spread with
chocolate glaze. Rounds may be sliced and filled with whipped
cream, jam or lemon curd. Makes 12 - 15 doughnuts.

Reviewer: aja from denton, tx
these donuts turned out great! soo yummi too! i didn't use the lemon peel, and i used 1/4 tsp of cinnamon instead of the nutmeg. also, they never doubled in size while rising, but that could have been because of my yeast. i have never made donuts before, and i was amazed at how easy it was, and how these turned out.
