"Many years ago when we were in the Young Women's program we made these doughnuts for a party.  They went over big and I have maid them many times since.  Recipe from Jen Baird."

1 pkg yeast
1 T sugar
1 cup flour
1/2 cups lukewarm water
2 cups scalded milk
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup shortening
1/2 tsp soda
1 tsp salt
1 tsp nutmeg
2 beaten eggs
5 1/4 cups flour

Mix yeast, 1 T sugar, 1 cup flour and 1/2 cup lukewarm water and let set.  Add 1 cup sugar to the 2 cups scalded milk, 1/2 cup shortening, 1/2 tsp soda, 1 tsp salt and 1 tsp nutmeg.  Let cool while yeast is rising, then mix all together.  Add beaten eggs and 5 1/2 cups flour.  Dough will be sticky.  Cover and let rise until double.  Roll out on floured board and cut.  Let doughnuts rise 1 hour in a warm place.  Fry in fat and glaze while hot.
