      OH MY GOSH! Yuck. Just tried these and I gotta be blunt, they just do not have any taste. Very poor. Gord27

      Loved them! These are just like the beignets we had on a romantic trip to New Orleans years ago. Quick, easy and delicious. I felt the batter needed a touch of salt so for the half recipe I added 1/16 teaspoon. Edited to say that OF THE 350 RECIPES I REVIEWED IN 2008, THIS HAS GONE INTO MY TOP 20 FAVORITES COOKBOOK.

      I've been making doughnuts ever since forever, and these are so easy to whip up and they fry up wonderfully, really puffing up and become light and airy. I may never go back to yeast-based doughnuts again! I used a trifle more than 1/4 teaspoon of nutmeg and the doughnuts were wonderfully flavorful!
