Recipe For Buttermilk Cake Doughnuts. Serve warm for breakfast or brunch plain or dipped in sugar or a glaze. Old fashioned buttermilk donuts are plain cake donuts with a simple glaze but they re scored to create more surface area so that when they re fried they get extra crispy and extra delicious on the outside.
Add buttermilk shortening sugar and 1 1 2 cup flour baking powder and salt. In the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment combine the remaining 1 3 4 cups flour the granulated sugar baking powder baking soda cinnamon nutmeg salt and lemon zest. Fry doughnuts a few at a time until golden brown on both sides.
I dare you to eat just one.
Drain on paper towels. If desired dip warm doughnuts in cinnamon sugar confectioners sugar or additional sugar to coat both sides. Add 3 cups of the flour beating until blended. You could also toss the donuts in a cinnamon sugar mix glaze them with a powdered sugar water icing or frost them with chocolate frosting.
