1 c sugar
2 egg yolks, beaten
1 egg, beaten
4 c flour
2 t baking powder
1/4 t nutmeg
1/2 t baking soda

Cream the butter and sugar. Stir in egg yolks and whole egg, blend.
In a separate bowl, sift all dry ingredients except the confectioners'
sugar, add to creamed mixture, alternating with buttermilk. Stir
to mix all ingredients. Cook by dropping spoonsfuls of dough into
375 degree F deep fat. Fry a few at a time, to keep fat temperature
constant. Turn to brown on all sides. Drain on paper towels,
