This is the first time that I ever made doughnuts or deep fried ANYTHING. I didn't have a thermometer so I was a little nervous about the oil temperature. I found a couple tips: put a wooden handle in the oil and when bubbles come off of it the oil is ready to go. Make sure that you increase the temperature slowly so you find the minimum temp. at which this happens. It took a little adjusting but it was fairly easy. Also, test a cube of bread...it should brown in about 2 min. I didn't use this method as it didn't seem very logical because bread is dry. I followed the recipe almost exactly (I substituted pumpkin pie spice for the mace) and found it a little sticky to form into balls, but they tasted so good that I am hesitant to change anything. Make sure that your ball sizes are close to a teaspoon or slightly smaller; they puff in the oil. Basically, these were a cinch to make, quick, and tasted delicious! Thanks for an easy recipe!!
