Easy Cake-Style Homemade Donuts

Bite size donuts (AKA Donut Holes) with a lightly crisp and golden brown, sugar coated exterior, and a soft and fluffy, tender interior. Just like an old fashioned cake donut but ready in a flash!

I made this easy donut recipe because who can resist a fresh donut? But how many of us actually want to put in all the typical effort of a homemade donut?

I’ve seen donut holes made with a store-bought biscuit dough but I’m all about the freshly made dough.

It’s a hundred times better and unbelievably easy. No mixer required, no kneading, rolling or cutting. Just a quick stir and shaping and they’re ready for frying!

Topping Ideas

Then you can finish them as you like. I just go the sugar route but you can also cover them with:

  • vanilla donut glaze
  • chocolate icing
  • cinnamon sugar or pumpkin spice sugar
  • powered sugar
