    1. There are couple of reasons for donuts to be hard. 1st, you don’t leave the dough enough time to rise, 2nd when you roll the dough, if you press it hard and flat and immediately fry then it will be hard. If you used the exact quantity as I mentioned and leave the dough to leave for 7-8 hrs, and then roll it softly, cut it into round shape and again leave it for 1 hr to rise it then it will be soft. Try again and let me know if this helped. 🙂
