These are soooooo easy and takes a very little time to make.I made these doughnuts and my family enjoyed it a lot.I was not so sure that they will be tasty but when i had a bite i was amazed.HOW TASTY AND DELICIOUS THEY WERE!I still feel the great taste.

These were a riot to make. Really fun in an insane way. Shining Superstar you failed to attach a warning that the dough when a tad too wet is like glue, and so when I left 12 y.o. son to "knead" in under 10 seconds he'd submerged his hands and was delightfully and literally JOINED with the mixture...it was like sticky rubber! Emergency applications of flour eased the stickiness but not the laughter. We learned they need to be cooked slowly or the inside stayed gluey while the outside was crisp. We learned that a microwave will repair that. We learned to make them look more like blown up inner tubes, ie quite a decent hole, so when they swell up in the oil, the whole doesn't totally disappear! We learned that a little slug of pineapple juice mixed with sugar is a great coating. We learned making donuts is great fun, and we'll do it again. But...we weren't that fussed on this recipe, it seemed a bit lacking something, so we will instead venture into the waters of Donut-Dom and try others to find something we really like. However, four stars for the fun, and the technique! It's great.
