Decent donuts. You don't have to use yeast and therefore no waiting for them to rise. The real test of any donut is what does it taste like 24-48 hrs after they're cooked. I'll update.

I made these tonite and they were great! I've been looking for a good cake donut that actually tastes like and looks like a doughnut. These are wonderful...the only addition I made was a little vanilla and I souped up the spices by including 1/2 tsp. pumpkin pie spice as my family likes a lot of "oomph" in their food. Thanks for the recipe! -Lauren

For some reason, my dough stayed wet even after a lot of kneading. So, I added up tp 2 cups of flour before placing it in the fridge. I added a little more cream of tartar and baking soda to compensate for the extra flour. Doughnuts were tasty though, so I will try making this again to see where I went wrong. Hopefully, next time dough will be easier to handle. Thank you for posting.

This dough was so easy to work with. I also added 1/2 tsp of nutmeg and shook the doughnuts gently in a bag of sugar and cinnamon. There is no end to what you could do with these...maybe leave out the cinnamon and add other flavoring like lemon or even cocoa. As they are, I think they are the best recipe I have ever found online and I have tried so many. Thanks for this recipe!!!!

This was very easy to work with. I added 1 tsp. of nutmeg. Perhaps some tried to make this from regular mashed potatoes. I assumed that it was just cooked and mashed with no added ingredients. Therefore it was easy to handle. Would make this again.

I have no idea why this was such a disaster... but the dough was too sticky to do anything with, and the more flour i added, the more my mixmaster neared it's death! it was a nightmare to get off the fingers and everything else, and the doughnuts came out flat. word of advice: don't try to substitute the cream of tartar!!

Homemade Krispy Kremes!!!! These are beyond fantastic..they are melt-in-your-mouth bites of Heaven! I am a Krispy Kreme fanatic, and this recipe is the closest thing to the real McCoy I've ever tasted..I've never made homemade donuts from scratch before, and this recipe was so easy to make and the directions were well written and easy to follow. The texture is light but more dense than a real Krispy Kreme--but the flavor is pretty darn close. I tossed a few in cinnamon sugar as suggested, and the rest, I coated in a simple glaze of powdered sugar, milk, and vanilla extract. I can't believe how good these are!! Chris, my BF, is not a big fan of doughnuts, but even he said these were delicious, and he wants these for dessert tonight!! Coming from him, that is a huge compliment to your recipe!! It was all I could do to stop eating them !! I can't thank you enough for this recipe...it is Absolutely WONDERFUL, and a definite 5 star winner !!!! Thank you SO MUCH !!!! Teresa
