Have your oil heating to 375 degrees before you make the dough.
4 and 1/2 cups flour
1 cup sugar
3 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. soda
1 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. nutmeg
Mix all this together and add in all at once,
1 cup buttermilk (I never have buttermilk so I just use 1 cup skim milk minus 1 tablespoon and then add 1 Tbsp. lemon juice to it. That makes it thicken like buttermilk if you let it sit for 10 minutes.)
1/4 cup melted butter or margarine or 1/4 cup oil (I used a 1/4 cup of applesauce to replace this)
1 tsp. vanilla
2 eggs, slightly beaten
Flour your counter and then toss the dough on it until it is no longer sticky. Adding flour as needed. Roll out the dough to about 3/8" (I did 1/2") and cut out with a donut cutter.
Slip donuts carefully into oil and fry on the first side for 1 and 1/2 minutes. Flip and fry for 1 and 1/2 minutes on the second side. Drain and remove to paper towels. Let cool a little and then glaze or coat in powdered sugar, cinnamon sugar or just plain sugar.
Apple BBQ Sauce (Chuck Hughes)
This is not my own recipe I got it from a show called Chuck's Day Off.
It is so good, that I could almost eat it with a spoon.
1 cup plain unsweetened applesauce
1 medium onion, peeled and finely diced
1 chipotle pepper, in adobo sauce, finely chopped
(there are a lot in the jar/can so you can just put the rest in a container in the fridge and use them when you make the sauce again.)
1 clove garlic, minced very fine
(I use crushed garlic that I buy in a jar in the produce section - 1 tsp. = 1 clove)
1 cup ketchup
1/2 cup honey
1/4 cup molasses
1/4 cup soy sauce
1 Tbsp. Worcestershire sauce
Juice of 1 lemon
(I use 3 Tbsp. RealLemon juice, since I don't always have a lemon)
He says "salt and pepper" but I don't add this to the sauce, since I salt and pepper what ever I am putting it on before I put it on.
If I am going to bake something in it I do just pour freshly made sauce over it and bake it.
He made a brisket and cooked that in it.
I have done that and baked a chicken in it.
I have also had it on baked salmon.
All very good!
I made this and doubled the recipe, cooked it a little while on the stove to reduce it then put it in 1 pint canning jars. They sealed but since I didn't boil them in a canner I put them in the fridge. A double recipe makes about 7 pints.
He strains his after it has cooked. I didn't.
