I was looking for the long johns with the cream filling. However, I figured I'd try these and attempt to squirt some stuffings into it. Mine came out a little too dense for that, but as far as doughnuts go, they were good, especially with chocolate frosting. They could stand to have been wider to keep from rolling to the heavy side in the oil.
The were a bit dense. If I make the recipe again, I'll allow more time for rising and I'll add more spice. The nutmeg has great flavor but next time I think I'll add a little mace or allspice, too.
The first batch we followed recipe exactly. They turned out like cinnamon sticks. The 2nd time we let rise 3x size and cut wider and they turned out right. We find the glaze sticks better if you wait till they are a few hours cooled. Flavor is wonderful, even a bite without glaze is tasty. Better than store bought by far. I have attached photo.
OMG, I pulled up this recipe while looking for a donut recipe and decided to give it a try even though there was no photo for me to know what I was really making.They are WONDERFUL.soft,cakie,delicate.I glazed half of the batch and frosted the top of half,My family just loved them.I will definetely be using this recipe ALOT>
these are just like down town . but I found that you must spray your wax paper with pam or what ever. if you don't you will never get them off the wax paper without tearing them apart. also the frosting is great but I used only 1 tsp. of maple flavoring and that was perfect.after rolling out the dough I used a pizza cutter to cut them and that worked perfect.
Found them to be dense, needs to proof longer. Good when dipped in hot syrup and coated with coconut.
These did not work for me. I tried everything to get them to rise. They were like sticks. Sure wanted them to turn out, as my hubby loves long johns, and this is the only recipe I have found.
These were delicious and made a lot!! I loved how easy the dough was to roll out. Will definitely keep this recipe. Thanks!!
