For the Doughnuts:
1 ¼cupsall-purpose flour
3tablespoonsunsalted butter, melted
Vegetable oil for frying
For the Cinnamon and Sugar Coating:
1/2stick unsalted butter, melted
Add enough oil to a deep-sided pan to measure a depth of about 3 inches. Attach a candy thermometer to the side of the pan and heat over medium heat until the oil reaches 350 degrees. Have ready a plate lined with several paper towels.
While the oil is heating, in a small bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, salt, cinnamon, nutmeg and allspice; set aside.
In a medium bowl, whisk together milk, buttermilk, sugar and melted butter. Using a fork stir in dry ingredients and mix just until combined.
In a small bowl, combine the sugar and cinnamon for the doughnut coating; set aside.
Once the oil has reached 350 degrees, measure out 1/2 tablespoonfuls dough and using your hands gently roll into a ball. Gently place dough ball into oil and fry until golden brown on bottom then flip and cook reverse side until golden brown. Carefully remove with a slotted spoon and drain onto a paper towel lined plate. Dip the hot doughnuts in the melted butter and then coat with the cinnamon-sugar mixture. Serve immediately; doughnuts are best eaten the same day they are made.
