    MinnMomof2's Note:

    These are my grandma Clark's donuts. Our family LOVES them! They always go over quickly. I also entered them into the local fair and won a blue ribbon with them! They actually do last more than 1-2 days and taste OK although soggy. I prefer them fresh, warm, and crunchy. The yield is just a guess, I never remember how many they make and by the time I think to count half are gone:) I fry mine 3 at a time in a fry daddy in vegetable oil, my grandma uses a square electric skillet and fries 4-6 at a time.

      I loved this recipe, easy to follow and quick to make. I did not have a donut dropper, so I used my cookie scoop and this gave me a good amount of large sized donut holes. My husband LOVED the glazed ones, but ran out of glaze and shook them in some superfine sugar. I prefered them with the sugar. All and all the perfect sunday morning donut! Thank you for a great recipe.

      Great flavor, reminded me of the old-fashioned spice cakes that my grandmother used to make. I used a little more milk on the icing just to make it go further. Will make again. Thanks for sharing.
