    startnover's Note:

    I grew up with these oh so good bar doughnuts and didn't realize till recently that they are somewhat of a northwestern phenomenon. I actually halved the original recipe because it was so huge, so it does double. Don't use to much flour because it will make the dough tough. If you are feeling really decadent (they are already deep fried after all) I like to fill them with Bavarian cream filling which I get at our Cash and Carry restaurant supply store, or you can make it yourself.

      Place all ingredients in a medium bowl and mix with a hand blender till smooth.
    13. 13
      I frost mine as I eat them because if you let the frosting sit it will start to slide off the doughnut.

      The number you will get is determined by how big you cut them.

      I followed the recipe exactly but my doughnuts rose so much that they wouldn't cook all they way through (they were gigantic!) I think they would have turned out wonderfully if I had halved the size of the original doughnut to 1-2" x 3-4". I'll have to give it another shot!
