Cake Doughnuts

Reviewed: Feb. 13, 2009
We are first time doughnut makers, so take that for what its worth. We made doughnuts and doughnut holes out of our center pieces we cut out. By the time we got to our holes (we did them last) we had it down pat. Our doughnuts came out very crunchy and greasy, and not very doughy in the centers at all. I think our mistake was not letting the oil get to temp (It really needs to be 370 or even a tad higher) or else the doughnuts just float around soaking up oil for too long. Use high heat, and don't over cook (golden does not mean brown! It took us a few tries to see the difference) Personally, I think the flour ratio is right on. I can see how adding extra flour could dilute the taste as another poster mentioned. Do use extra flour when rolling out. We will be doing these again soon to iron out our wrinkles and I'll review again. In our case, I think the failure was our fault, not the recipe! Use high heat! Don't overcook!
