      Easy, delicious, and very filling. I too used 1 large egg in place of the egg substitute. It makes a very thick batter, and scooping 1/2 tbsp size balls into the oil worked best for me, yielding about a dozen donut holes.

      This is such a great recipe and easy. My kids made it (all but putting them in the hot oil). We then filled them with vanilla pudding with a piping bag and dunked them in chocolate ganache and had them as a dessert. The kids had so many ideas for fillings and glazes that they are already speculating for the next time we make these. Thanks for posting.

      Using this recipe to make "doughnuts" for the first time, it was simple, easy and oh so yummy. My 8-yr. old watched the whole process and loved eating them!
