  1. Add the sugar, milk, and shortening to the beaten eggs, in a mixing bowl. Sift the flour before measuring, then resift it with the baking powder, spices and salt. Combine the egg mixture with the flour mixture and stir until blended. Roll the dough 1/4-inch thick on a floured surface and cut into rings with a doughnut cutter. Reroll holes and scraps, if desired. Fry at 360 to 370 degrees for about 3 minutes, first on one side and then the other. Drain on paper towels until cool enough to handle. Roll in powdered or cane sugar or cinnamon sugar. These doughnuts can also be cooked and iced with a cake frosting or dipped into glaze. Makes 30 doughnuts.
