These are very good and I love the no-fried. The doughnuts cooled in no time. They are like a firmer pumpkin cake, but not hard or dry. The batter/dough is very doughy, so I recommend a ziploc bag and just cut off the tip - WAY EASIER than a pastry bag. It was hard still to get them in circles so the last leftover one I made in a stick shape - just a straight line. It tasted the same and was WAY easier so I will make all doughnut sticks next time. Brushing the icing was tough because mine was a bit thick so I just drizzled with a spoon. All came out delicious and a perfect fall treat!

They were very good - in fact they're like a doughnut-shaped muffin really. Children loved them - not too sweet but they didn't notice with a bit of glaze on top though. Felt quite special having them for a Saturday breakfast. Thanks for the recipe!

Over a year later and I'm updating my review to give it a full five stars. Pre- doughnut pan I had a lot of issues getting a good rise. Now with the pan at my side I get rave reviews every time I make these. Best doughnuts ever!

I loved the flavor of these. They came out delicious. The only disappointment I had was in the lack of rise of the doughnuts.
