Yeast Doughnuts

  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 yeast cake
  • 5 cup flour
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup melted butter
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon mace
Scald the milk and cool to lukewarm. Dissolve the yeast cake and add it to the milk and a sufficient amount of the flour to make a sponge. Allow this to rise up until double in bulk. Then add the eggs, sugar, melted butter, salt and mace. Beat thoroughly and add enough flour to make a dough. Knead this until it is smooth and stretchy and let it rise until double in bulk. Roll out on a board into a sheet about 3/4 inch thick. Cut into long strips about 3/4 inch wide., twist, stretch and shape like a figure 8. Let these stand on the board or in a pan until they are light and then fry in deep fat.
