I followed this recipe with one substitution - I used buttermilk instead of regular milk. all other quantities of ingredients are correct. This makes a very soft dough BUT it is important to chill it for the minimum, to have the oil hot enough AND to not crowd the fryer...
I was generous with the flour when handling the dough - after the dough chilled, I rolled the ball of dough in flour, then hand pressed the dough to the desired thickness, trying to not handle it too much. I then made my shapes by hand just as I was ready to drop them in the oil. I had a helper so the assembly line went smoothly.
These cake donuts are what I consider to be cake donuts - light enough and not too dense, but not as light as bread / yeast donuts. And I agree with others, they are good too the next day but beyond that, you'll need a good cup of tea or coffee to go with it!
