    Another favorite out of my Amish cookbook ! We used to live near an Amish community and their doughnuts and breads were unbelievable ! Time listed does not include the rising or frying.

      This recipe is DELICIOUS and super easy. I did adjust the amount of salt by cutting it in half as I thought the first batch I made was a little too "salty" tasting. Overall though they are easy to make, look fantastic when finished and everyone that has tasted them thought they were yummy and couldn't believe they were "homemade".
