"An easy recipe for homemade doughnuts. The original recipe says you will get 2 dozen doughnuts cut from the dough but I have never been able to get more than 1 dozen. I usually just sprinkle hot doughnuts with a mixture of cinnamon and sugar -- we can't wait for a glaze! These are light and airy and delicious."

"Growing up, my mom used the canned biscuit dough to make "homemade" donuts. Living overseas, we can't get that sort of dough, so I've had to learn how to "really" cook. I was thrilled to find a bread machine recipe to try and they came out great! I don't have a true donut cutter, so I had to use a small plastic cup turned upside down to cut the donut and then a twist top from a bottle of soda to make the middle hole. I was able to get 32 donuts from this recipe, but will probably use a larger cup next time. I baked 1/2 the recipe and fried the rest. If watching calories, the baked were good, but the fried were definitely tasier (surprised?). I used Kittencal's Easy Bakery-Style Donut Glaze (#179685) for a quick glaze. This made the donuts even better, and I'll probably continue to experiment with other glazes since there seem to be so many yummy ones on the 'Zaar. Now, cooking notes: After cutting the donuts, I let them rise for 45 minutes (instead of 30). For the baked version, I baked them at 450F, but only had to leave them in for 5 minutes. "
"This is a great recipe. The finished product was light and delicious. More than one member of the family came in and wondered who had made a run to town for doughnuts. I was able to get the full 2 dozen (plus 'holes') from the dough, but I did have to let them rise for a longer time period than given: I started deep-frying after 50 minutes. They turned out the same size as purchased chain-store doughnuts. I glazed them and dipped them in sprinkles."
"Perfect! Only changes I made were using soy milk and adding a couple teaspoons of cinnamon into the dough. I've been looking for an easy doughnut recipe that tastes good, this one is it."
"Great recipe!!!! I shared some with my neighbors and she told me that she could eat 5. I plan to make another batch to share with them tomorrow."
"This was my first from scratch doughnut attempt. The texture was very good. The flavor of the dough was a bit bland, and I did not have powder sugar on hand so I used nutatella hazelnut spread to frost. Overall they were very good! Thank you!"
"My family loved these. Glazed the doughnuts and rolled the doughnut holes in powdered sugar. Will definitely become one of our favorite treats!"
"A very good donut recipe. I think it takes longer than 30 minutes to rise tho. Mine sat for 40 minutes without much rising. After about an hour, they had risen more. These donuts are fairly good even a day or two later. Not very sweet tho. Use plenty of glaze."
"Turned out pretty well, but not as much as I had hoped. I suspect this is due to error on my part, however, and will try again."
"I have been wanting to make home made doughnuts for some time and I came across this recipe and thought I would give it a try since I make pizza dough with My Bread Machine. The only thing I changed was I used bread flour rather then all purpose I got great lift with it made wonderful doughnuts. Thanks for the recipe."
"This was my first time making doughnuts and I was kinda scared. But wow...they turned out great. I used a 3 inch ring to cut the doughnuts so I only got 14 doughnuts. I then placed them in my oven that I had warmed to 200 degrees and then turned oven off and let them rise in oven for 30 minutes. I used a maple glaze on half of the donuts using 1 cup powdered sugar, 5 T. pure maple syrup and 1/2 tsp of vanilla. The other half of the doughnuts I used a regular powdered sugar glaze. Thanks for a great recipe."
"I was so happy and proud of myself after making this recipe. The doughnuts were like they were from a bakery. I filled them with raspberry jam using a pastry bag. I also substituted the milk for soy milk, and they turned out great. Will definitely make again!"
"Excellent! Thank you Lvs2Cook! I will never buy donuts again! lol This was so easy to make, using the bread machine rocks! I will be making these from now on. I enjoyed these with plain glaze and chocolate glaze (I prefered the plain glazed myself) and I want to try the jelly filling next time. Anyone ever try that?"
"These were delicious. I made these this just this morning. They are very easy and very light! I will definitely be making these again!"
"These were so easy and very light and delicious. My son informed me that we now never have to go buy doughnuts because these were the best ever!"
"This is first time I made doughnuts and i LOVED that I could make the dough in my breadmaker. Great recipe and super easy. I would highly recommend this one"
"11/30/2007 SUPER EASY. Had a yen today for a doughnut, so I made these.. EAsy, effortless practically and I just dipped into some buttercream frosting I had. a"
"These were wonderful. I made my own blueberry filling and have a recipe for vannila cream that I plan on using the next time. I will make these often. Thank you for sharing. Barb"
"My family loved these! I made doughnuts and doughnut holes, then put powdered sugar on some and glaze on the rest. I love my bread machine...thanks for sharing this recipe!"
"Excellent flavor and too not dry, thanks!"
