A simple cake doughnut lightly spiced with cinnamon and nutmeg. Coat with cinnamon-sugar, or an icing sugar glaze.
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! - 06 Mar 2007 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
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. - 10 Feb 2008 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
These doughnuts are SO EASY to make. I have never made doughnuts before, but they turned out wonderful ~ Crispy outside, soft moist inside! They were great just plain without the cinnamon-sugar on them, but were excellent when that was added! A new breakfast treat for my boys! - 14 Sep 2002 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
