This recipe is fantastic! I've made this recipe a few times now and it's always a huge hit. I follow the recipe exactly each time and they are always perfect. The dough is very sticky. A little flour on working surface and tools will get the job done. Don't make the mistake of thinking you need to add more flour. The recipe is perfect, follow it exactly and you will get there. Another poster said not sweet enough. Sugar is perfect, if you add more the texture will be denser and get dark really fast when frying. You want the donuts to be light and airy and perfect.
When it's cold out I let the oven warm up on the lowest setting for about ten minutes while the dough is in the mixer. Just enough to make it a little toasty in there, yeast doesn't respond as well in cooler temperatures. When dough is ready remove bowl from mixer, cover with a kitchen towel and place in prewarmed oven to proof. Use same method for the donuts after cutting if its cold out. If you don't have a donut cutter you can use a wide rimmed glass and a shot glass for the donut hole.
I love making these because not only are they delish, they make everyone so happy. These donuts will be a hit with your kds, your honey and your coworkers!
