It's nice to see a good doughnut recipe that you can make from scratch. These doughnuts were awesome and they will be made again! I dipped some in confectionary sugar, sugar and cinnamon and sugar mix. They were quickly eaten in a flash!
These were great, I reduced the recipe by half and still got a ton of doughnuts the instruction do not mention what kind of flour so I used all-purpose, I used my deep-fryer for this, we all enjoyed the doughnuts over the weekend, thanks for sharing wicked cook!
Oh how I loved biting into my first doughnut! What a great breakfast I had. Chai Tea with two of these babies :) I dipped some of mine in sugar and some in sugar and cinnamon. I loved them both! My friends family enjoyed the rest dipping into the stash until they were gone Easter day! Thank you for sharing this recipe with us Wicked! Made for Newest Zaar Stars 4/09 Linda
