Description:
Ingredients: 1 cup Splenda
1 stick Butter -- melted
1 1/2 cups Atkins Vanilla
Shake Mix
1 tsp baking powder
6 tbs water
2 large eggs
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 cup heavy cream
3 tbs vegetable oil
How To Prepare: Heat 2 inches of oil in a
large pot to EXACTLY 360
degrees.


Mix wet ingredients in one
bowl, beat very well.


Mix dry ingredients in a
second bowl, stir together.


Mix wet ingredients into dry.


Stir until smooth.


Drop ring-shaped dough
into oil, cook for 1.5
minutes, then flip.


Cook for 1.5 additional
minutes, until golden
brown.


Sprinkle Splenda on top
while still hot.


I've gotten some questions
about Darnuts, so I'll try to
cover those here:


Oil: Use the lightest oil you
can find.


Oil Temperature:
Use a thermometer. The
lower the oil temperature
gets, the more oil the
donuts will absorb. If it gets
to hot, you'll get really brown
donuts.
If you have trouble, raise the
temperature to about 370,
and cook for only
2 minutes total.


Variations:
1. Try unsalted butter for a
different flavor.


2. This batter resulted from
an attempt to make a cake.
Make 1/2 the
recipe
with NO water, and put it
into an 8-inch nonstick cake
pan. Spread it
out
before baking. Bake at 350F
for 24 minutes. The
resulting "cake" will
rise very unevenly, and it will
fall. But holy cow, it's WAY
more tasty even
than the donuts!


3. Also try variation #2 in a
muffin pan. That's how I
discovered that
the batter would make
donuts.


4. When making variation 1
or 2, grind 1 tbs of flax seed
and add that
to the batter. This gives it a
richer body and a crispier
crust.


5. Make them as donut
holes by dropping 1 tsp
batter into the oil. (Use
only 2 tbs water in this
variation.)


6. Make the donut holes
and let them cool. Then,
use a cake decorating
funnel to fill them with
whipped cream. Freeze
them. Viola! Cream puffs!


7. Add 1 tsp Cinnamon to
the mix.


8. Add Darrell Lea
chocolate chips to variation
2.


9. Add cocoa powder to any
of the above. (You'll need to
up the Splenda
by about 1/3.)


10 . Make them with
Chocolate shake mix
instead.


11. Instead of only Splenda,
sprinkle a mix of Splenda
and cinnamon on
top when they're done.


12. Use a pastry funnel and
drizzle the batter directly into
the oil.
Viola! Funnel Cake!

Positive aspects of the product (pros): Mmm! Like a doughnut!
Cons: Drain well on paper towels

Surprisingly, these were good! The temperature of the grease is crucial! I halved the recipe so I wouldn't be tempted to eat more than my share. Sprinkle with cinnamon and splenda, yummy!
