Yield: 12 doughnuts

I made these donuts for my grandsons. They loved them! I made the vanilla glaze and sprinkled them with rainbow sprinkles and chocolate sprinkles. These are definitely a denser, cake donut. I agree with another reviewer about the vanilla bean paste and wonder if perhaps both the paste and pure vanilla extract could be used for a more pronounced (less expensive) option.
I followed the recipe exactly and we tried them and through them out. They have very little flavor and are dense. The vanilla bean paste is very expensive. I'm sorry I wasted my time and money on these. I love almost all of the fine cooking recipes I have made, but this recipe is the worst.
