2 cups all-purpose flour

3/4 cup white sugar

2 teaspoons baking powder

1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg

1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon

1 teaspoon salt

3/4 cup milk

2 eggs, beaten

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

1 tablespoon shortening

1 cup confectioners' sugar

2 tablespoons hot water

1/2 teaspoon almond extract


Preheat oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C).

Lightly grease a doughnut pan. In a large bowl, mix flour, sugar, baking powder, nutmeg, cinnamon, and salt. Stir in milk, eggs, vanilla, and shortening. Beat together until well blended.

Fill each doughnut cup approximately 3/4 full.

To make the glaze, blend confectioners' sugar, hot water, and almond extract in a small bowl. Dip doughnuts in the glaze when serving.
