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 bits less guilt.

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

Check out these topping ideas:

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.

Grab a doughnut and enjoy-
