Plain Cake Doughnuts
A simple cake doughnut lightly spiced with cinnamon and nutmeg. Coat with sugar and cinnamon, or a confectioners' sugar glaze.
A doughnut pan and a little time is all it takes to enjoy these easy doughnut-shaped muffins. Food coloring may be added to the glaze mixture for a holiday breakfast treat.
I had not made fresh homemade donuts before. I had always used the canned biscuits. These were much better! I did not shape the donuts but just made donut holes. I did let the batter sit for about 30 minutes before placing them in the oil. My granddaughters and I had a great time rolling them in sugar before popping them in our mouths. This may become a grandma tradition when my granddaughters come for sleepovers .
Very good recipe! Simple, and the donuts turn out wonderful. I actually just ate most of them plain, but powder sugar and honey does make it all the better. Family loved them.
I used to work at a bakery and made all of the doughnuts there. These are pretty good, but need more cinnamon and nutmeg. I also needed to add more flour to successfully roll these out, but don't add any more than what you need to be able to roll them out without making a huge mess. The oil temperature is super important for cooking these just right.
The flavor was good, but did anyone else have problems with the dough being way too moist? We had to add a ton more flour and it was still moist and sticky. Way too sticky to knead or roll out. Once we did get a decent consistency, the taste was great!
Super easy and great tasting. Substituted milk for buttermilk and made a lemon glaze to coat then in....Delicious!
OK, I had to just laugh at some of the reviews I read..... All those complaints about heaviness and density! Helloooooo??? These are not your Krispy Kreme yeast-raised doughnuts! They are traditional CAKE doughnuts. They are MEANT to be a dense and heavy type of doughnut! I read up on the reviews, heeded some advice and began with a little extra flour in my dough. The time listed from start to end for this recipe was 25 minutes, and it was RIGHT ON! I whipped these up, rolled them out, cut and fried. My daughter rolled in sugar/cinnamon...and my family of five wolfed them down! No problems here! Nice recipe. Simple and easy dough product. Fun and delicious!
