Since we have several "molasses" addicts onboard I'll throw this out- in my area we have a Morgan Co. Sorghum Festival and several producers in my county and one nearby who's a big commercial producer. Most use a roller mill to remove the sap, a green watery fluid that boils @ ~ 8-1 ratio to become syrup.
He, Danny Townsend, uses a steam boiler to evaporate his sap and is also a seed source for other sorghum grower, syrup producers. It's is a very thick milder and more delicate flavor than dark molasses (from sugar cane) or cane sorghum , also from sugar cane as seen from the deep south. I have also seen several cane sorghum operations in Mexico where they also distill liquors from it and cane molasses.
The local old time versions of evap pans are same as used for maple syrup- large shallow sheet metal pan with partial dividrs to slow the liquid as it passes down through the heat.
I'm not promoting him but I do know the man well. Take a look at his products as not so common a product to many on this forum. He also is a large truck garden farmer who raises tomatoes, peppers, beans and other veggies in large commercial amounts. He keeps mules as pets, not workers.
Google: www.townsendssorghummill.com  
Just down the road from Danny is Evan Williams whose well into his 80's and still farms, logs, tobacco, strawberries- roadside sales and produces sorghum at a roadside stand.

You need a shorter dog. :D

Now tell me about these molasses donuts. Are they like fry cakes but with molasses ?

Yes, when I was a kid, they was deep fried in a deep , wide iron skillet made for donuts. But yeah, deep fried. Oh my goodness. :)

I call this my chicken fryer but this weekend it's going to be my donut fryer. It's about 4" deep.
Last week I used a small cast iron dutch oven.

That’s the same basic design as my “camping” skillet except that mine is Lodge 15.25”. My skillet is to big to use effectively on our stove UNLESS the contents are at least 3/4” deep. It’s great for camping. 1 dish meals. mmmm. I’m making myself hungry now! But it is OK. I do that same concept with my Dutch oven.
Trying harder everyday.
