I just tried these. They were really good. I just made dounut holes. I was worried about the middle getting done, if I made them bigger. I used complete pancake mix. They turned out just fine.

A quick and easy snack you can make for your kids with ingredients you probably already have in the pantry. I used a complete pancake mix because that's what I had on hand. Maybe next time I'll use a baking mix. My oil was too hot and it left the inside a little doughy, but they were still yummy.
