it's nice to see that a recipe i created and posted over two years ago at vegweb.com is being shared and enjoyed all over by everyone. xxoxo christa
All I can say is - YOWZA!!!
I was really excited about making vegan doughnuts -- chocolate to boot! Unfortunately, even though I followed the recipe exactly, and kept my oil at 375, these were the worst culinary disaster of my life. I got greasy globs with uncooked centers. So bad I threw away more than half the dough. Not sure what went wrong, but I'm going to look for a different recipe. Glad this works better for others, but it's not for me.
