I have been searching for years for the perfect cake donut - tender, with the characteristic crooked top and pools of glaze. This donut is it. It turned out perfectly from following the recipe (except I doubled the spices, because we like pumpkin spice donuts). I made them for Halloween, and we're going to make them every Halloween from now on. Thanks for the recipe. (To prevent the donuts from becoming misshapen from cut-out to frying, I laid them out on a cookie sheet with light flour, and then transferred them to the oil with a metal spatula dipped in flour to keep them from sticking.)
