4½ teaspoons baking powder
½ teaspoon nutmeg

Sift together flour, baking powder, salt and nutmeg, and add to the butter and sugar mixture. Blend in the milk and mix together thoroughly.
Fill greased doughnut tins 2/3 full. Bake at 350°F for 15 to 20 minutes, or until doughnuts are golden.
Combine remaining 1/2 cup of sugar with the cinnamon. Melt remaining 6 tablespoons of butter. While doughnuts are still warm, roll them in melted butter; then in cinnamon sugar.
