Hi Aunty Yochana

I tried this doughnut recipe and it turned out to be so soft and fluffy, it's like biting into air. And it remained soft the next morning. I have tried doughnuts from Alex Goh's bread book, this recipe is much softer than Alex Goh's doughnuts. Thanks so much for your recipe.

Hi Aunty,

I made the donut yesterday. It was soft and nice. But when I ate today, it was a bit hard and not that soft as compare to just fried. Why is that so?
