I halved this recipe and still got a dozen donuts and about 15 donut holes. Despite the fact that the initial yeast foamed, I didn't get a ton of rise. I used my KitchenAid mixer with the dough hook like other reviewers did. I let it go for an hour in the sun of the backyard and it rose a little. I used a 2.75" opening drinking glass for the large hole and a 1.5" cap for the little hole. I added minimal flour as I worked the sticky dough. Back outside to rise again, but I really don't think anything happened at all. When I made the glaze, the powdered sugar eventually took all of the liquid and formed a few large clumps - after I added some hot water it thinned out just fine, though. I only made 3/4 of the 1/2 for the glaze and that was still more than I needed. Frying the donuts was easy enough, glazing worked fine. They tasted good and all, but the whole process wasn't worth the time and work. I might try them one more time just to attempt Boston Cremes or jelly-filled, but otherwise, no go.
