Lightly spiced with cinnamon and nutmeg. Preparation time is short and well worth the effort.
In a large bowl, stir together the flour, 1/2 cup sugar, baking powder, salt, 1 teaspoon of cinnamon and nutmeg. Make a well in the center and pour in the milk, egg, butter, and vanilla. Mix until well blended. Cover and refrigerate for 1 hour.
Heat oil in a deep heavy skillet or deep-fryer to 370 degrees F (185 degrees C). On a floured board, roll chilled dough out to 1/2 inch thickness. Use a 3 inch round cutter to cut out doughnuts. Use a smaller cutter to cut holes from center. If you do not have a small cutter, use the mouth of a bottle.
Fry doughnuts in hot oil until golden brown, turning once. Remove from oil to drain on paper plates. Combine the remaining 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon and 1/2 cup sugar in a large resealable bag. Place a few warm donuts into the bag at a time, seal and shake to coat.

Eating healthy breakfast to start the day has become a good habit. It’s a fabolous way to start my 24 hours off healthfully. The sugar hit from the fruit wakes me up and gives me energy to make on the morning. The sweetness is often vilified as the root of all disease, but fruit is also loaded with fibre, which is great for your digestive system and helps keep you feeling full all day , and less likely grab a snack out of the vending machine before lunchtime.
Making fruit a at 7.00 clock habit is simple . Easy as put the sweetness in your fridge next to the milk or on the bench next to your grain pan , or move your coffee maker or tea kettle — somewhere where you’ll find it. Before you eating the rest of your breakfast , eat your fruit. If you’re not normally a breakfast person.
