Fluffy Cake Doughnuts

Rating: 4 stars 314
This recipe is very quick and easy to make. I have a donut pan, which is like a muffin pan, but has donut shaped holes rather than muffin shaped holes. These donuts are baked not fried, so they don't have so many calories. I mix up either a powdered sugar glaze or a chocolate icing to top these with. They can also be rolled in cinnamon and white sugar, but it doesn't stick very well. My husband likes them just plain. For a chocolate glaze, simply stir 1/2 cup melted chocolate chips into the glaze mixture.

My mom made these for us after school in the fall with the apples we'd pick and buy from a fruit farm. Warm, crisp, and sweet, a perfect fall treat.
