My first attempt was done without a doughnut pan. I used a muffin tin and aluminum foil "dowels" in order to make holes in them. The batter came out pretty much like a muffin and didn't bake right. The tops were a little hard, the bottoms were mush. Granted, I read the recipe wrong and put 2 times the amount of batter in each muffin tin as what the recipe called for. So it could have been my fault. The batter tasted amazing though so I went out and found myself a doughnut pan.
My second attempt, the batter baked correctly (see picture below).

This is one of those recipes that looked GREAT that just didn't play out well. More than likely, I will not try this again unless I find a reason for why they turned out poorly.

Right out of the oven, they taste great. After cool down, they loose a lot of flavor

Great muffins, not so great doughnuts
As for the recipe - if you're interested in trying it, I followed the TofH recipe to a T which is linked at the top of the post.
