Perfect!, Member chinamom24

I had never made donuts before and could not believe how easy and perfect these came out. It's good that the recipe only makes one dozen. If it made more I would become seriously overweight. I already made these again the next day. I now have a new special birthday gift/treat to share with people. These are chewey but light and the flavor is perfect. I don't have a deep fryer but my wok worked great. I made the glaze thinner and coated entire donut for a delicious glazed donut. Chocolate frosting tastes great but I will use less water next time so it is thicker, more of a traditional chocolate donut frosting. Also good coated with a light sprinkling of fine granulated sugar. Oh, didn't have the evap. milk so just used water and a slight extra dusting of flour.
