These are really great simple doughnuts. I didn't need extra flour except a little to put on the board and a little bit on top of the dough to pat it down, too much flour ruins the consistency. I didn't use a rolling pin either, it's easier just to gently pat it down with your hands. Fried in my deep fryer 4 at a time. I got about 14 standard sized doughnuts from this. Glazed them with a simple vanilla glaze.

excellent...easy I did find I needed extra flour.. the dough IS easy to work with with the addition of a pretty good dusting on the counter and some additional sprinkled on top.... I didn't use a rolling pin to roll just used my hands & finger tips to pat it out these are easy and tasty and will be made again some I left plain ..some I put in a zip lock with powdered sugar & shook somw with cin/sugar & some with plain sugar I cooked mine right in my electric skillet had the oil heating while cutting the left over dough goes back together easy too so you can just pat it out again & recut more my last 2 weren't donuts (round) just the scrap left which I shaped into a lond rod type ..just as good and kind of cute too will make these often
