Fluffy Instant Donuts

Reviewed: Aug. 28, 2011
This was my first attempt. And I read a lot of recipes and the reviews. I did make the adjustments (1 cup flour, 3/4 water, and I used two egg yolks and 1 whole egg... I also added nutmeg. I used a devils food cake mix. The batter was thick and sticky. I got the oil super hot. I dint have the thermometer. And I used a cookie press to drop the dough into the oil... It worked ok... Made things uniform, but not thick enough for them to be tasty and moist... The tablespoon versions were better, but I couldn't leave them too long because it seemed like they were burning (oh I used a lot more than 3 cups of oil... ) when I pulled them out they were still raw in the center, but they kept cooking as they cooled and were ok when my husband grabbed one and popped it into his mouth before I could yell no! It's raw! The flavor was a little better on t he bigger ones... But not a strong chocolate. This was an easy lead in idea... But the recipe as is... I am not sure how successful I would've been without all the research I did prior and the trial and error with the cooking. At the end of it... Will I make this again? Yes. Because there Are many options and ways to enhance it and start to finish it was a quick process (not counting all the time for actually cooking- which is tedious dropping batter and flipping. it does move quickly- but my donuts were hole sized.) With the oil at the right temp these were a light or 'fluffy' instant cake donuts... and not greasy.

Best Brownies

Reviewed: May 19, 2011
Very tasty... And I made them with what I had on hand! My husband said that they were good, although the chocolate taste was 'authentic' instead of the commercial chocolate he is used to. I did not frost the brownies... That seems like something you do for a cake. These were not hard or chewy... They were a light bite, but fudge like. They didn't stick to my teeth (something I don't like) but they were not cake like. They were much denser without the same stick together. This recipe did crumble a bit. I did sift the cocoa powder and flour together to ensure no odd lumps and made sure not to over mix. I might spring for a better quality cocoa powder (I used Hershey's) if I was going to make them for other people... But to satisfy a late night urge... These are it! They were good out of the oven and then when they were cold later!
