I always thought this was a treat I would buy at the store and never make at home. It is actually really rewarding when you put a platter of warm, homemade doughnuts in front of family or friends. I love the tiny lift from that pinch of nutmeg and the tangy note from the sour cream and buttermilk. You don't have to wait hours for these to rise and they are tasty. I recommend cutters for a standard size doughnut. If you like smaller, use smaller cutters! Here we roll the doughnuts simply in sugar. Add spices if you like. Add cocoa powder. Make a simple glaze and dunk instead. I like to roll some in spices and keep some plain and do a mixed platter. My absolute favorite way to serve them: I roll them in powdered sugar with an excessive amount of cinnamon. If you like spices, add some to your powdered sugar.
