Passover Doughnuts

READY IN: 1hr 20mins
Recipe by dojemi

While searching for Passover recipes I came across this one for doughnuts. Who can pass up a doughnut? : ) It sounded interesting enough to share. Because this is my first time making them, the servings indicated are a guess-timate.

This was an interesting recipe. I have some leftover matzo meal that I'm searching for interesting ways to use. I found the dough super sticky and kind of hard to use so I just put it on the tray like drop cookies and cooked it for the full hour. We found these to be tasty but they were like the shells of a cream puff instead of soft like a doughnut. Also, an hour seemed to be much too long. I'd make these again and call them puffs, and start checking at 45 minutes. Thanks for posting!
