Make this recipe for my mini doughnut maker and they turned out great. I glazed them and they are fantastic. Didn't change a thing.

These are the perfect texture and the perfect flavor. I like them better than the recipes the donut maker came with. Excellent with frosting and sprinkles. And they don't fall apart.

Thank you so much for the recipe, a friend gave me her doughnut maker but with out recipes and I really didn't know what to do with it. I asked her for recipes and she said that's why I gave it to you, I didn't know what to do with it! Now I have one good recipe to eloborate on. Think i will try adding blue berries next time. Thank you for sharing
