Duck Egg Donuts

3 1/2 cups all purpose flour
1 cup sugar
3 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp nutmeg
2 Tablespoons melted butter or coconut oil
2 duck eggs
3/4 cup milk

Heat your cooking oil in a small cast iron pan, so it is about half full, and heat to 375 degrees- if the oil is not hot enough, the dough will just absorb the fat, not fry properly.

Mix 1 1/2 cups flour with rest of the ingredients, blend 30 seconds on low speed, and then 2 minutes on medium. Scrape the batter off the sides of the bowl into the middle. Stir in remaining flour, mix and turn dough out onto a floured board. Roll to about 3/8 inch thick and cut with a floured doughnut or biscuit cutter.
Slide doughnuts into hot oil, just covering the surface area of the pan. After about 2 minutes, they should rise to the surface, now flip them over. Cook another 2-3 minutes on the other side, then carefully remove them without pricking the surface and drain on a paper towel lined plate. Continue with the remaining doughnuts. Eat as is, or sprinkle with sugar.
