This was my first attempt ever at making donuts. The kids were quite pleased, they were gobbled up quickly and quietly. However, I was ill prepared to make donuts. These don't have holes as I don't have a proper cutter (or any items which would suffice to make nice small round holes in the center). And, my candy thermometer was a casualty by the end of this project. It was making sure the oil stayed at a steady temp and I dropped it. I'd love to make them more often, but three risings and hours of waiting???!!! The grocery store bakery is only two blocks away.
