2. Add the meat, stir together and season with salt. Cover and let sweat gently for several minutes. When meat takes on a cooked appearance, add paprika, caraway seeds, the pepper and the bay leaves, stir all together, cover and let cook on a low fire for 10 to 15 minutes until meat has picked up the flavor of the seasonings.

RAISED DOUGHNUTS (didn't give apr66pg2) 4-12-08

1 cake yeast
1 pint of milk
2 cups flour
4 egg yolks
1 whole egg
½ cup sugar
½ cup butter
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon vanilla
5 cups flour
1 teaspoon nutmeg

Dissolve 1 cake yeast in 1 pint of cooled scalded milk. Mix in 2 cups flour and let stand till light and bubbly. Beat 4 egg yolks plus one whole egg. To egg add:

½ cup sugar
½ cup butter
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon vanilla

Start adding the 5 cups of flour to which you've added 1 teaspoon nutmeg. Make a very soft dough. Let raise till double in bulk. Roll out ½ inch thick and cut. Let stand a few minutes until light and fry in hot fat.

RAISED DONUTS (didn't give may64pg2) 4-12-08

4¼ cups flour
2 cakes yeast
¼ cup lukewarm water
½ cup sugar
¾ cup milk, scalded
1 teaspoon salt
2 eggs or 4 yolks
1/3 cup butter or margarine
½ teaspoon flavoring, if desired

Stir yeast into lukewarm water, add 1 teaspoon of the sugar. Let soften 10 minutes. Mix milk, sugar, and salt and scald. Cool to lukewarm in a four quart mixing bowl, then stir in yeast mixture and beaten eggs. Add half flour and mix, then beat in cooled shortening and flavoring. Stir in all but ¼ of the remaining flour. Cover, let stand 10 minutes to stiffen, then turn onto board sprinkled with remaining ¼ flour. Knead thoroughly at least five minutes. The dough must be soft to make delicate, flaky doughnuts. Adding more flour makes a bready product. Place dough in a lightly greased bowl, turn once to bring greased side up. Cover with damp cloth and let rise in warm place till double (1½ to 2 hours). Turn out on lightly floured board and cut in half. Round up portions and cover with bowls. Let rest 10 minutes. Roll out ½ inch thick. Cut with doughnut cutter. Let rise on lightly floured board in warm place until very light; about 45 minutes. Do not cover as light crust that forms makes it easier to lift and slide doughnuts from pancake turner into hot fat. Fry in deep fat about 3 minutes at 270°, turning once during frying. Makes about 24. (Mrs. Gertrude Stieglitz, Iowa City, Iowa)
