I piped vanilla custard into these doughnuts and they were SO good. Less healthy I know, but it made them the perfect amount of moist without being super oily like fried doughnuts.
I didn't have those fancy loaf pans, so I just separated 2 standard loaf pans with aluminum foil. It worked perfectly and made the doughnuts really easy to get out of the pan.
I was disappointed with these long johns. As other reviewers noted, they were quite dense. I also found them to be rather dry. The chocolate glaze was the only part I enjoyed.
I agree with some of the other reviewers, they are denser than I exected but it was a nice surprise as I was expecting them to be more muffin-like in texture. The denser texture makes them seem more like a donut and the chocolate glaze on top makes them an extra special treat.
i liked the recipe but i'll agree they were denser than i expected. Husband didn't like the bittersweet chocolate so would have to try a sweeter chocolate next time.
I was extremely disappointed in this recipe - I found the Long Johns to be cakey and dense. While they tasted "OK", I definitely would NOT make them again.
