My only complaint about this recipe is that I didn't have any cider to go with the finished product!! ***I followed the directions to the letter, and I had no problems. The dough was a bit sticky to handle, but coating my hands and the surface with flour did the trick. (To keep the floury mess contained, I lightly greased a glass cutting board, the floured it. The grease helps the flour spread out evenly, so you don't get sticky spots where there was to little flour, or big floury spots on your dough where there was too much. Then the cutting board just went in the dishwasher-voila!! No nasty flour mess to clean off the counter!)***I used the scraps and the doughnut holes to test my oil, since I was doing it on the stove, and without a thermometer. At first the oil was too cool, and I wound up with some very greasy doughnuts, then it was a bit too hot, and they turned dark and crispy. But I eventually figured it out, and I was glad to have tested on the scraps, instead of having a whole mess of screwed up doughnuts on my hands!***Overall, I don't know that the time and effort was necessarily worth it, since I can get cinnamon sugar cake doughnuts at the bakery down the street, but it was a fun experiment, and a great recipe. They came out wonderfully.
