I don't like cake donuts -- I'm a Krispy Kreme girl m'self. So it was with some trepidation that I tried these, and I'm very glad that I did! I halved the recipe just to try it out, and because CHOCOLATE, I used 3/4 C flour and 1/4 C cocoa powder. I also took jmyslin's suggestion and made them in gem pans hit with a shot of Pam; I, too, used butter rather than shortening (HATE shortening!!!), and I used buttermilk in place of milk simply because I had it on hand. I only added a dash of the spices, and I used vanilla instead of almond extract in the glaze. They are nothing like the cake donuts from the bakery, more like a dense cupcake, which is probably why I like them. Once the rest of the world gets tired of their electric donut makers and starts donating them to Goodwill, I'll pick one up for cheap and make "official" donuts with this recipe.
