    Thanks for the recipe. We made delicious donuts, and every single one of them came out crispy on the outside and fluffy on the inside. FYI: I sustituted "shortening" with equal amounts of "unsalted butter."

    As I was looking for a donut recipe to try for the first time, I came across this one. Glad that I decided on this recipe. It was really good! Crisp on the outside and fluffy inside! The family loved it! This definitely will be included in my recipes library. Thanks!!

    These were great! Nothing wrong with the recipe at all! They didn't come up as fluffy as I hoped it would but that was my fault. I will be returning to this recipe again.

    Awesome recipe. easy to follow. One tip to consider is freshness - donuts are not so good the next day or day after.

    Excellent donuts! I needed quite a bit more flour while kneading for the dough to stop sticking. Instead of the glaze I tossed in cinnamon sugar while still warm. Great idea to turn off the heat for the donut holes!

    This recipe is PERFECT. The donuts were soft and delicious. It may last long but it worth trying

    This was such an out standing recipe. It is easy and very simple for anyone to make. Yes it might take an hour or two but it is worth it.
