These are a little time consuming but are worth the effort!! First of all, the recipe made almost double the amount stated, but that may have been due to my using a glass instead of a regular donut cutter, then a tiny round cookie cutter for the hole. I have never tasted KK donuts as I'm in Canada, but my b/f is from NY and when he tasted them the first thing he said is "they taste just like Krispy Kreme's". I never showed him the recipe or any reviews, or even told him they were supposed to taste like KK's. So I'm thinking they MUST taste a least a little bit like them if that's what someone says after taking just one bite. Anyway, whether they taste like KK's or not, the are EXCELLENT donuts. I had to make extra glaze because there just wasn't enough for the 30 donuts & 30 holes this recipe made. I added a small amount (approx 1/8 tsp) of maple extract to the glaze for the second half of the batch for a slightly different flavour. I also noticed that when I cooked them at 325 (as recommended by a previous reviewer) they came out a lighter colour and slightly more tender than cooking @ 350. But really, whatever temp you cook them at, you really can't go wrong. I've made this recipe 3X so far and I have yet to screw it up. I think the only way you could mess it up is if you have the yeast or the oil at the wrong temp....or maybe don't let the dough rise long enough. Other than that, this recipe is pretty fail proof...and probably the best donuts I've ever tasted.
