ABOUT Old Fashioned Doughnuts RECIPE

There is no other comparison with homemade doughnuts. I love to make doughnuts with yeast but I have to be patient till the yeast blooms and the dough rises. This old fashioned doughnuts recipe is very quick and easy to make and contains not only the flour but also potato and I have used pumpkin also to kindle the flavours.............Got this recipe from midwestliving.
