  • 2 tbs yeast
  • 1/2 cup water, warm
  • 1-2 cups flour
  • 3 tbs sugar
  • 1 can evaporated milk
  • 2-3 eggs
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • nuts, ground
  • sugar

Dissolve 2 cake Fleischman's yeast in 1/2 cup warm water. Pour in about 1 or 2 cups flour for very soft dough, add 3 tbs sugar, stir till dough well mixed, let raise. Warm 1 can evaporated milk, add 2 or 3 eggs, 1 tsp salt, 1 1/2 cup sugar and 1/2 cube butter. When dough has raised add milk mixture and enough flour to make a soft dough. Let raise once and spoon down and let raise again. Grind nuts and add sugar and warm milk enough to make a paste. When dough has risen about double spoon out on bread board and press with hands until about 1/2 inch thick and cut with two sizes of glasses. Put 1 spoonful of ground nuts on doughnut, put smaller one on top and press well and cut again. Let raise in a warm place and cook in hot grease (test temperature of grease with small piece of dough. When the dough goes to bottom and comes up quickly and browns slowly the temperature is right.). Roll in sugar.
