  1. Thank you for this recipe. Its fascinating.
    I want to know how many doughnuts you made from the recipe. How many can I make from 5 levelled cups of flour?

    1. Thanks JD for stopping by.I made 5 sizeable doughnuts from this recipe. For 5 leveled cups it should give about 9 sizeable doughnuts or there about .So it depends on the size.
      For medium sizes 5 leveled cups will give you about 14 -15 doughnuts.
