    I got this recipe when I was a teenager and have been making it ever since. Anytime my nephews and nieces spend the night, they request these. They take some time but they sure are worth it!

      Wow, these made my kids so happy. I mixed the dough in my bread machine, cut them out, and put them in the fridge overnight. Then in the morning I took them out and let them rise in my warm oven for about 1 hour while I exercised. (To counter the fact that I was going to eat a bunch of doughnuts for breakfast!) Then I fried them up and dipped them in the glaze that I had added a handful of melted chocolate chips to. They were wonderful and the kids devoured them in minutes.

      Finally! I've been searching for a doughnut recipe that actually tasted like doughnuts. They came out soft and I didn't even use make the glaze. The recipe was so easy to follow. The only hard part was getting the frying part down. I found out that it's got to be the perfect light brown. My family loved them.

      Hi Marg, I love these donuts. They're tasty and easy to make, especially when you toss it all into the bread machine. I used 1 1/2 c all-purpose flour, 1 c whole wheat pastry flour, and 1/2 c oat flour for a little variety and extra fiber. Last night I prepared the dough, cut them out, and put them covered on a cookie sheet in the fridge overnight. I got up early to take them out and let them come to room temp and rise some more for a couple of hours. We had lovely fresh donuts this morning, a hit with all of us. Your glaze was delicious. Took a bit more milk for me and I'd add some vanilla or other extracts to it next time. After I'd used the glaze for a quarter of the donuts, I added some melted semi-sweet chocolate to the remainder to make chocolate glazed as well. Cinnamon sugar and powdered sugar also fit the bill. Next time I'll leave the "hole" in and try filling them with pudding or jelly. These are really tasty and fun to make. Thanks, Marg.
