I just saw Sunny Anderson make these on Cooking For Real and had to post this recipe! So easy, quick and tasty! You could change this up with a little ground ginger or lemon zest mixed in with the sugar. Have fun! :)

Super fast and super easy. I would only make half of the sugar mixture for coating the donuts because I had a lot left over. I could easily have made a another batch with the coating that I had left over. I had a little trouble with the sugar sprinkling out of the bottom of the bag as I was shaking it. I ended up putting the sugar mixture in a medium size bowl and rolling the donuts in it. I took some over to my in-laws and they loved them too. Leftovers are best when they are popped into the microwave for about 10 seconds. Made for April 2011 Aus/NZ Swap.
