Cream the butter and sugar. Stir in egg yolks and whole egg; blend. In a separate bowl, sift all dry ingredients except the confectioners sugar; add to creamed mixture, alternating with buttermilk. Stir to mix all ingredients. Cook by dropping spoonsfuls of dough into 375 degree F deep fat. Fry a few at a time, to keep fat temperature constant. Turn to brown on all sides. Drain on paper towels; sprinkle with confectioners sugar.

My family really enjoyed this recipe My son made the dough and I fried it, nothing like teamwork to make a snack better. I would recommend this recipe to anyone, it is fast easy and disappears even faster!

These drop doughnuts were simple to make and made for a remarkably delicious change of pace from our usual yeast-based doughnuts. They really fried up nicely, puffing up and becoming light and airy. As for changes, I thought the batter needed a touch of salt so I added about 1/8 teaspoon. I also used a touch more nutmeg, maybe 1/3 to 1/2 teaspoon. The resulting doughnuts were wonderfully flavorful! Next time I plan to add cinnamon to the batter and sprinkle the finished doughnuts with a cinnamon-sugar mixture.
