These donuts turned out great. I fried until brown, which took longer than 15 seconds per side, probably closer to a minute or more per side. The chocolate glaze is very good, though I used a little less sugar and a little more cocoa powder than the recipe called for. I made a half recipe (12 instead of 24) and dipped 6 in chocolate and sprinkled 6 with cinnamon sugar. Both were equally tasty. Enjoy!
