Great little donuts!! Similar to the ones we always buy at Pier 39 in San Francisco, Ca. Thanks for this recipe, I will cook it much more times to share with family and friends!! They have to be very little to cook through.

I love dunking my doughnuts and this recipe is the right texture for donuts in my opinion. We loved them and since these are easy to make we will have them more often now that I have this delicious recipe! I rolled some in cinnamon and sugar and some in plain sugar. Both are GREAT!
