    yummy, fast and easy, this was a relatively quick breakfast for something different and all 4 kids asked for it to be a regular. i did let my oil get a little too hot ( we have VERY sensitive smoke detectors, they go off with eggs) but even then they were really good. thanks for sharing i love these recipes that come from old cook books.

    This is an excellent and VERY SIMPLE recipe. I have tried several others but this is the best!! I set my deep fryer at 375 degrees.

    My oldest son & I made these one morning after church. What a delicious treat--the food and my teenaged son actually wanting to do something with me!! I'm not sure why, but the dough came out very sticky. We added about 2/3 cup of flour to reduce the stickiness enough to allow for rolling out doughnut holes. The dough waiting to be fried began rising as we cooked the other batches. That was interesting! :-) We rolled the cooled holes in cinnamon sugar, and they were gone before we could even get the next batch made. Definitely a hit and a keeper. Next time, I think I'll try stirring cinnamon, nutmeg, and cloves (a fave combo) into the batter. Thanks for posting!
