My grandmother use to make donuts fifty years ago and this reminded me of her so I tried it. It failed or I failed. I followed the directions to the letter and where is stated to beat the dough a second time on medium after adding egg and vanilla the dough stopped my mixer after about 15 seconds. Kneading the dough 6-8 minutes seemed like a long time but I did it 6 minutes. I oiled a bowl and put the ball of dough in it, covered it with plastic wrap and put it in a warm place to rise but after and hour and fifteen minutes it still hadn't doubled so I used it anyway and though they look good they are doughy on the inside. I also had to use a small 1 inch cookie cutter not a 2 inch. What did I do wrong? they tase really good.
