Ingredients

  • 1/4

    cup shortening

  • 1

    cup sugar

  • 3

    eggs

  • 1

    teaspoon vanilla extract

  • 5

    cups all-purpose flour

  • 3

    teaspoons baking powder

  • 2

    teaspoons salt

  • 1

    teaspoon baking soda

  • 1

    teaspoon ground cinnamon

  • 1

    teaspoon ground nutmeg

  • 1/4

    teaspoon ground mace

  • 1/2

    cup buttermilk

  • 1

    cup grated peeled apples

  • Oil for deep-fat frying

  • BROWNED BUTTER FROSTING:

  • 1/2

    cup packed brown sugar

  • 3

    tablespoons butter

  • 1/4

    cup heavy whipping cream

  • 1-3/4

    cups confectioners' sugar

  • Colored sprinkles

Directions

In a large bowl, cream shortening and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in eggs and vanilla. Combine the flour, baking powder, salt, baking soda, cinnamon, nutmeg and mace; add to creamed mixture alternately with buttermilk, beating well after each addition. Fold in apples. Cover and refrigerate for at least 2 hours. On a lightly floured surface, roll dough to 1/2-in. thickness. Cut with a floured 2-1/2-in. doughnut cutter. In an electric skillet or deep-fat fryer, heat oil to 375°. Fry doughnuts, a few at a time, until golden brown on both sides. Drain on paper towels. In a small saucepan, bring brown sugar and butter to a boil. Cook and stir for 1 minute or until slightly thickened. Pour into a small bowl; let stand for 10 minutes. Add cream; beat until smooth. Gradually add confectioners' sugar, 1/4 cup at a time, beating well after each addition until frosting achieves desired consistency. Frost doughnuts; top with sprinkles.
