Baked Yeast Doughnuts

2 pkg. active dry yeast
1/4 Cup lukewarm water
1 1/2 Cups milk, scalded
1/3 Cup butter or margarine
2 eggs
1/2 Cup sugar
2 tsp. salt
1 tsp. nutmeg -- (1 to 2)
4 3/4 Cups flour -- (4 3/4 to 5)

frosting: *

Soak yeast in lukewarm water. Add butter to scalded milk and cool to lukewarm. Add yeast. Beat eggs; add sugar and beat again; add to milk. Add salt, nutmeg and beat flour in thoroughly, adding only enough to make a very soft dough. Cover and let stand in warm place until double in bulk. Or let rise in refrigerator until double in bulk, about 3 1/2 hours.

Roll out onto lightly floured board, about 1/3 of the dough at a time. Roll to 1/2-inch thickness. Cut with well-floured doughnut cutter or cut into rectangles about 1 1/2-in. wide and 4-in. long. Place about 2-in. apart on well greased baking sheets. Brush well with melted butter or margarine. Let rise in warm place until double in bulk.

Bake in 425F. oven about 12 minutes or until lightly browned. Roll in sugar or ice with powdered sugar frosting.

You may wish to use use canned frosting. The frosted top may be dipped in coconut or finely chopped nuts.

1 lb. sifted powdered sugar
1/3 cup butter (softened)
3 to 4 tbsp. cream (can use canned milk)

Beat thoroughly and then spread on the doughnuts.
