Buttermilk Doughnuts Recipe

17 Apr

Well technically it’s Allen’s Momma’s Buttermilk Doughnuts Recipe.

I woke up this morning feeling inspired. I have these baking spells and all I do days, nights and weekends is bake. At all crazy hours – mostly 2am, or early morning like today – 6am Blueberry Crumble Muffins (William Sonomas recipe). Why? For no particular reason – we’ve all had a stressful workweek, so might as well start Friday treating the work peeps to fresh warm muffins, right? Which, luckily, were very well received.

Came across Eating Out Loud on Twitter and this recipe for Momma’s Buttermilk Doughnuts recipe caught my eye and I will try to make it this weekend (and update, if I remember to). First, because I have leftover buttermilk from the muffins, and second, anything from anyone’s Momma is always good.

**Dear Allen, Hope you don’t mind me reposting. I post as a collection of recipes for myself, but if you doth protest, please let me know. Thanks. And thanks to your momma too.**

(Allen’s) Momma’s Buttermilk Doughnuts (makes 3 dozen)

  • 2 eggs
  • 1.5 cups white sugar
  • 5.5 tbsp butter (1/3 cups)
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp nutmeg
  • 2tsp baking soda
  • 2 cups buttermilk
  • 4-5 cups flour
  1. Beat eggs with white sugar
  2. Add butter, baking powder and nutmeg
  3. In separate bowl, combine baking soda with buttermilk
  4. Add wet to the dry ingredients, with flour till dough is formed (like stiff cookie dough, not too sticky – Allen used about 3 cups for half the recipe).
  5. Chill the dough (up to 24 hours, then roll out with more flour till non-sticky).
  6. Roll out to 1/2″ disk, cut with cookie cutter (or can) and hole (with end of wooden spoon).
  7. Fry the doughnuts in 375F oil (use thermometer). Makes 3 dozen. Can store in tupperware.

It’s perfect plain, but if you wish to glaze:

Simple glaze

  • 1 1/2 cups powdered sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 2-3 T milk

He divided it into four bowls and then played around: 1 T raspberry preserves in one, 1 T blueberry jam in another, maple flavoring in the third, and a generous amount of freshly ground cinnamon in the fourth bowl. Each bowl will glaze about 2 doughnuts, so 8 )

A great idea is to make doughnut sticks and have a buffet of glazes and have a dipping party!

Thanks Eating Out Loud! I’m definitely a fan forever!
