    V'nut-Beyond Redemption's Note:

    I got this recipe from 1999 issue of The Best of Country Cooking. I really didn't fancy frying anything and boy was I happy when I found it. Made it and it's a pity I didn't have any fellow Zaarians to help me finish it! There were just the two of us... Here in Singapore, it takes a very short time for the dough to double. Cooking time is the time taken for dough to rise.

      I can't believe I forgot to review these. It was so easy to make. I used butter instead of shortening, simply my preference. They came out really nice and less greasy that deep fried doughnuts. I used brown sugar in the glaze, which gave them a caramel flavour. I had to give the rest to my parents-in-law, I just couldn't have that kind of temptation in the house. Thanks Vnut, for a great recipe!b

      Really great easy recipe! Like a previous reviewer, I substituted butter for the shortening, and I also used more flour than the recipe called for to get the dough thick enough that it'd retain the shape of my heart cookie cutter (I made these for Valentine's Day). I skipped the glaze and simply frosted with Nutella and powdered sugar. The doughnuts themselves have a mildly sweet flavor, more like a bread than a doughnut, so I really recommend topping them with a glaze or some type of frosting. They were pleasantly soft and I wouldn't call them moist, but they certainly weren't dry.
