As a Canadian I have NEVER heard these called "Canadian Doughnuts" -- they are BEAVER TAILS (or Whale Tails for the places that rip off the Beaver Tails company). This is OK but there is a more authentic recipe in this site called "Beaver Tails from a real Canadian". Like the original from Ottawa that recipe uses only whole wheat flour too.
PLEASE! Although they are LIKE doughnuts these are called: "Beaver Tails" not "Canadian Doughnuts"! I'm from Ottawa and my favourite is indeed the Killaloe Sunrise (fresh lemon juice squirted over a generous sprinkling of sugar & cinnamon on the Beaver Tail). That with a cup of hot chocolate after skating five miles on the Ottawa Canal on a cold February day is pure satisfaction.:-)
The first time I have this doughnuts was in a farm fair in Ancaster. They called it "Elephant Ears" a French Canadian friend told me that they usually call it "Beaver Tails". Anyways I found this bread tastes really great crispy outside and soft & chewy inside. So I looked for the recipe here and tried to make it at my own kitchen. This recipe is good! Exactly the same thing that I had in the Fair! Thank you!
Yummy... we call these mini elephant ears on the west coast. My girlfriend who is one calls them Mormon Scones. Whatever they're called...they are deeeelicious!!! Shortcut...use Rhodes Frozen rolls and save a ton of time. Simply thaw on a cookie sheet roll out & fry'em up. My 5 g'kids will eat 3 dz. faster than I can get them sugared & cinnamoned. I toss them in a brown paper sack with sugar & cinnamon.
Excellent! I made these when I had lots of kids over and these doughnuts went so fast! I now get requests from these kids from time to time!! I didn't use the lemon though. Thanks for sharing this recipe
