To answer just a few of the questions presented, I think this recipe can definitely be halved! It is a huge amount of bread flour so I'm sure that would be fine. However, I would not try baking instead of frying for this recipe because of the consistency of the dough. Also, it is very interesting to me that bread flour is being used since it is known to be a bit coarse and heavier than other flours like cake flour or all purpose flour.

These doughnuts look simply luscious. I would like to try my hand at making doughnuts as I have never done so before. I would like to cover mine by dusting it in sugar. I love those kinds of doughnuts. Maybe I will add some cinnamon to that too. I am sure the maple glaze tastes good too though!

I've been craving doughnuts. I think I'll make this Amish recipes!

This idea is really fun, and though kneading the dough is something I usually steer clear of, this recipe has me reconsidering. I really want to try these doughnuts out to see how light the texture is because it is so hard to find a light and fluffy doughnut recipe.

I love this recipe - really simple and easy to make - I have 4 questions. The First - Can this recipe be halved? The second - Can the left over dough be frozen or do I make all the doughnuts and then freeze them already cooked? The Third - Can the recipe be used for something other than doughnuts - like pretzels? The fourth (final)- Can they be baked instead of fried?

In case you don't get answers to your questions, I would just try freezing one before and after, try making one into a pretzel and then baking one.
