- 1 1/2 cups milk

- 14 grams yeast
- 1/3 cup water (warm)

- 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
- 1 teaspoon ground nutmeg
- 650 grams flour (plus extra flour for kneading)
- 1 liter cooking oil
- ground cinnamon
- 1In a saucepan, warm the milk and add the lard to melt. Set aside.
- 2In an electric mixer bowl, add the yeast and the warm water and let it rest for 5 minutes.
- 3Add the warm milk with the melted lard, as well as the eggs, sugar, salt, nutmeg, and half of the flour. With the flat beater attachment, beat at low speed, then increase the speed. Add the rest of the flour and continue to beat.
