This is a really sweet donut recipe that makes plenty, if you're not a sweet person, reduce the milk and sugar.

I thought these were quite good. Mine turned out like cake donuts. I think the batter ended up thicker than what it should have been but I'm not really sure. I also would have appreciated some indication of how hot to get the oil. I burnt the first few on one side. They cooked pretty fast.
