These were awesome! So easy and so good. Use a thermometer to keep the right temperature. I fried mine at 375? and they were perfect. I filled them with a custard based mock whipped cream filling. Yummy!

The oil temp. that the recipe calls for is way too hot. The first batch got over-cooked in a very short time. I turned it down to 375 and it was better. I don't know if I did something wrong but mine came out greasy. They were OK tasting the first day but by the next day they were gross tasting and I threw them away. I stored them in the fridge overnight and warmed them in the microwave then frosted them. The frosting is wonderful tasting though. I will try a different doughnut recipe and use this frosting recipe.
