Cardamom Doughnuts

 It's wonderful that doughnuts (basically cake) is considered a breakfast item.
 My favorite is to dunk my doughnuts in milk. 
 The result of me attempting to make a doughnut tower.
 Up close and personal with deliciousness. 
 No self control when it comes to treats. 
 All that powdered sugar...
 These babies are just begging to be eaten. 
Indulging in a few is okay; they are small after all.

Cardamom Doughnuts: Makes 1 dozen 
  1. 2 cups flour 
  2. 3/4 cups sugar
  3. 2 tsp baking powder
  4. 1/4 tsp ground nutmeg
  5. 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  6. 1 1/2 tsp ground cardamom
  7. 1 tsp salt
  8. 3/4 cup milk
  9. 1 tsp vanilla
  10. 2 eggs 
  11. 2 tbsp melted butter
Coating Ingredients:
  1. 1 cup powdered sugar
  2. 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  3. 1 tsp cardamom
  4. 4-5 tbsp melted butter
  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
  2. Spray your doughnut pan with baking spray, coat with oil, crisco, or butter to grease your pan. 
  3. In a medium bowl mix together the flour, sugar, baking powder, nutmeg, cinnamon, cardamom and salt. 
  4. In a medium bowl beat together the two eggs. Add the vanilla, milk and melted butter. 
  5. Mix ingredients until combined. The batter will be quite thick. Spoon intn doughnut cavities. 
  6. Bake for 7-9 minutes. 
  7. While the doughnuts bake get your coating ready. Melt the 4-5 tbsp of butter in a shallow bowl or a plate with a rim (a charger plate). 
  8. Put the powdered sugar, cinnamon, and cardamom in a plastic bag (I used a gallon bag cause it's big and I always make a mess...) 
  9. Once the doughnuts are done, flip them onto a cooling rack and as soon as you can dip each side in the melted butter and then place into the powdered sugar mix. Shake firmly but gently until that gorgeous thing is covered in powdered sugar. Place that treat back on the cooling rack and repeat this process with the remainder of the doughnuts. 
  10. Dunk away!
