   Sourdough Sams Doughnuts

  1/2 cup sourdough starter           2 egg yolks or 1 whole egg
  1/2 cup sugar                       1/2 tsp. nutmeg
  2 tbsps. shortening                 1/4 tsp. cinnamon
  2 cups flour                        1/2 tsp. baking soda
  1 teaspoon baking powder            1/2 tsp. salt
        1/3 cup sour milk or buttermilk

    Sift dry ingredients, stir into liquid, roll out, and cut.  Then heat
    some oil to 390 and fry.  This is an easy way with no interruptions.
    Makes 17 doughnuts and holes.  Dust with granulated sugar or a mixture
    of cinnamon and sugar in a shake bag.

  NOTE:
  These doughnuts are virtually greasless.  And if you want you can make
  several batches at a time and freeze.  They keep well and to me taste
  after a while in the freezer.  Take out as many as needed and thaw and put
  sugar on or eat plain.
