Buttermilk Drop Donuts, like McKenzies Bakery~ Recipe & Review

I know there is a risk when trying an Internet recipe.   
I don't need to waste precious ingredients, so it's a good practice to find reader reviews before I try any recipes out in my kitchen.

  Here is my reader review and revision for the  improvised McKenzie Buttermilk Drop donuts recipe.

 I am visiting my daughter in Washington and wanted to make fresh buttermilk donut drops for breakfast, so I located a recipe for McKenzies Bakery Buttermilk Drops on the net. 

 McKenzies Bakery was a New Orleans favorite and the Buttermilk Drops were unbelievably delish!  The bakery is now closed, so if I want  Drops, I have to make them! 

 I adapted a recipe I found online a bit and found it to be satisfactory.
 I recommend you use a  cooking thermometer to keep the oil temp. at 350 degrees

They are really good!

If you want lattes or iced coffee, Torani's White Chocolate Flavor is a real good flavor addition

Buttermilk Drop Donuts

1 cup flour
4 tsp. sugar
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. baking powder
Pinch of salt
1/2 tsp. nutmeg
Whisk these dry ingredients together in a bowl.

Add the following to the dry ingredients and stir until moistened throughout batter.
1/2 tsp. vanilla
1 tbsp. melted butter
1 egg
1/2 cup buttermilk

Drop by spoonfull into 350 oil.  Cook until golden.  Remove and drain on papertowels.  Glaze with powder sugar glaze or dust with cinnamon sugar.  I enjoy these just plain, too!

The Buttermilk Drop Bakery in Treme uses the old McKenzie's recipe, and they're great!
