This was my first experience making any sort of doughnuts and they were fabulous!! They came out light and fluffy. I filled them with raspberry and strawberry jam and dusted them with granulated sugar. I liked them better than what I get outside! Rather than cognac, I used a teaspoon of Uncle Pank's almond extract. Made about 30 doughnuts. I'll be making these again and again! Thanks for posting!
