This recipe is from an old Iowa church cookbook.

2 cups sweet milk*
1 1/2 cups sugar
2 tbsp butter or lard, melted
2 tsp cream of tartar
1 tsp baking soda
2 eggs
1 1/4 tsp nutmeg
2 cups flour, more if needed

Sift the flour, adding all of the "dry" ingredients. Make a nest of the flour mixture in a large bowl. Add the rest of the ingredients and mix until stiff. Adding more flour if needed. Roll dough out on well floured surface and cut. Drop into hot grease, enough so the doughnuts float. Fry until golden brown. Drain well.

*Sweet milk is whole milk NOT sweetened condensed milk!
