      I used to make doughnuts for a large chain grocery store. The way you turn the doughnuts while frying is to use large unpainted wooden chopsticks.You push on one side of the doughnuts over to turn them and can pick them up by inserting chopstick into the hole: no mashed or punctured doughnut!

      These are really great doughnuts - and I've made lots of doughnuts over the years. One thing to remember is use whole milk NOT even 2%. Also for the glaze including chocolate glaze - instead of the water use evaporated milk. I did everything else is the same. Terrific - thanks for the recipe Roosie
