Doughnut Balls

1 beaten egg
1/2 cup sugar
1 tablespoon melted butter
1/2 cup milk
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
1-1/2 cup flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
Powdered sugar

Combine egg, sugar, and melted butter. Beat well. Stir all dry ingredients together in a small bowl. Add to egg mixture alternately with milk. Stir hard and fast for about one minute by hand. Do not stir any more. Drop with a teaspoon into hot oil (360°). Turn each ball as soon as it comes to the surface. Cook for 4 minutes; do not undercook. Remove from oil and drain on paper towels. Roll in powdered sugar while still warm.

This recipe is from an old Rebeccah Lodge cookbook from North Platte, NE. The recipe was contributed by Louise Lindvall of North Platte. I have updated it a little.

Love At Home

There is beauty all around
When there's love at home.
There is joy in every sound
When there's love at home.

Roses bloom beneath our feet,
All the earth is a garden sweet,
Making life a bliss complete,
When there's love at home.

-- John Hugh McNaughton (1829-1891)
