Ingredient Small Batch Large Batch
All-Purpose Flour 2 ½ cups 5 cups
Baking Powder 4 tsp 8 tsp
Sugar 1 cup 2 cups

Clove ½ tsp 1 tsp
Nutmeg ¼ tsp ½ tsp

Vanilla Extract 1 tsp 2 tsp
Softened Butter
(room temperature)
1 Tbsp 2 Tbsp
Milk 1 cup 2 cups

Directions for making donuts
1. Add dry ingredients to mixer and blend until combined.
2. Add softened butter to dry ingredients, blend until it begins to form clumps.
3. Add your wet ingredients and blend on a higher speed until smooth. The batter will start to pull

Directions for frying the dough
1. Heat 2” of oil in a pot to 365 degrees, do not leave unattended.
2. Carefully dispense/scoop dough into hot oil without overcrowding.
3. As your donuts cook, flip when they get golden brown, cook the other side.
4. Remove donuts from oil using a slotted spoon.
5. Coat in cinnamon sugar, powdered sugar, or dip in chocolate as you please.
