    Great I would make it again

    Really yummy and easy! I agree with the folks who say they are on the dry side. I will probably tweak the recipe next time to fix! Maybe add some coconut oil or something? Will definitely make again though!

    The donuts came out nicely. note they do not get golden, so be careful to not over cook.

    These turned out dry. Flavor was good though.

    Easy to make and delicious. I used a 6-regular sized donut pan. It made 6 oversized donuts that looked more like muffins. Next time I will put less batter in the pan and should get 12 donuts.

    Fabulous donuts!! Classified as health food in our house.... but you must be quick, they are so light they seem to disappear into thin air! I use 1/2-3/4 the amount of sugar which tastes like plenty to me. Use fresh grated nutmeg and fresh ground cinnamon for a truly beautiful finished product.❤️

    gotta say this is an amazing recipe and really easy!!! i just add a bit of butter and swap the half the white sugar in the topping for brown sugar and it turns out really good, i also add a coupled drops of vanilla essence and cinnamon into the actual batter. haha my mum came home today and made me do two batches for guys at work.

    Tasted pretty good. A bit dry. I'll be honest, it was basically coffee cake. I would make it again.

    I’m a professional chef and I don’t mind testing easy and quick to make stuff like this out of curiosity during rush hour. At first, I thought this sounded too simple and easy to become a well-made, delicious bread. But to my pleasant surprise, it turned out well. They liked it. Thank you.

    Very moist instead of brushing melted butter on top of the donut, I brushed melted coconut oil then added the cinnamon sugar My kids ate them up

    These donuts are so delicious and melt in the mouth good! I didn't change the recipe at all and they turned out very well. These are great in the morning with coffee, I'll definitely be making these again.

    I substituted the egg for a banana, the butter for coconut oil, and added a bit more milk to compensate for flour, and the donuts still turned out marvelous.

    I just made these for my family. They are super quick to make and taste delicious! They are so quick I made them for my husband who leaves early in the morning. I used a muffin tin and they came out great. I got 10 of t of the mixture with the muffin tin.
