Simple Baked Cake Doughnuts

Delicious and versatile! Skip the bakery and make these baked doughnuts at home instead.

Simple Baked Cake Doughnuts

Doughnuts are something that we love to eat at my house. Myself included. I know, not a healthy option. But, I just can't help myself sometimes!

Instead of running to the bakery when a doughnut craving hits however, I like to make them homemade. Don't get me wrong. I love a good bakery-made doughnut, but, these involve very little work and a less guilt. 

This recipe was originally shared here at Table for Seven waaayyy back in 2011 and it's been my go-to doughnut recipe ever since.  They are delicious and incredibly simple to make. 

Not to mention..versatile!

Check out these topping ideas:   simple powdered sugar glaze-chocolate glaze-cinnamon sugar- double glazed-chocolate butter cream- Nutella glaze...the options are endless.

A few side notes:  
If  you don't have a doughnut pan, no fear! Check out this link to convert your muffin pan into a doughnut pan.  I've never used this method, but, it looks pretty basic. 

You can also make these in your mini doughnut pan. Just reduce your baking time by about a minute or two.
