The doughnuts look great but they're very tough after a while. I think it should include yeast in the recipe and let it rise so that it'll not be so tough.

they are good but they are kinda tough when they are done and when you go to eat them i would like them to be soft not tough.

I grew up eating warm donuts every morning while in Maine at a little bakery. These brought back fond memories.
