    Couldn't resist adding pix! I did these with and without rolling them in sugar and also used homemade applesauce. Hubby loved them split with a pat of butter. This makes a ton of doughnuts so if you are not feeding a crowd, is best to cut it in half! Very flavorful and Grandkids said they were better than purchased doughnuts! Delish!! chefelaine is right..deserves a BIG 5!!

    Applesauce....That sounds good! This reminds me of a recipe from my youth- dropping them from a teaspoon.... But our recipe didn't include applesauce.
