Very good This was my first attempt at making doughnuts. I changed out the nutmeg, because I don't like it, for vanilla. We really liked them. We plan making them often

I liked it is was easy to make and not that much time to fry up at all. I thought that maybe next time I will cut the nutmeg in half it was stronger after they where cooked. I also made fronting for them and dipped them in chocolate which made it better I think. I would do this again.

Easy to make. Very tender. I am not sure about the nutmeg. Perhaps a reduced amount would be preferable. I thought the taste was more reminiscent of funnel cakes than doughnut holes, but they were still tasty.

I made this recipe a few times and everyone loved it, so we made them for a fundraiser. Made about 1500, with a small cookie scoop they were the perfect size. Some tips, make the dough the day before they actually puff up a lot more. We stored the dough in zip lock bags. They are almost better after they have sat for an hour.

GREAT RECIPE!! I substituted cinnamon in place of nutmeg. Rolled half the batch in cinnamon sugar and the other half in powdered sugar after frying them.

Tender and delicious! Delicate and light, yet they do not fall apart. The balance of flavors is perfect. Definitely a keeper!
