So, these aren't the fried, greasy, artery clogging (delicious) doughnuts that we all know and love from grammas house, but these are delicious in their own right. For one, they have a bit more of a cake-y texture. They're sweet, but not overpoweringly so- excellent with coffee, and you can eat 3 or 4 and be all like, "wha? they're not fried or anything". I got the recipe from Vegan Yum Yum who went further than I have and made a chocolate glaze for the top as well.
The pan is from Sur La Table and is here. It's well worth the monies, even though it's such a specialty pan and I have a redonkulously tiny kitchen. I also gave some away as hostess gifts to family that I stayed with who have kids, and they were a hit. Who doesn't love doughnuts? Even knock-off healthy ones!
