"My husband can remember standing on a chair at the table to be tall enough to watch his Grandma make doughnuts. Unfortunately I can't find her recipe but this one is from a different German Grandma and sounds much easier than what he describes to me! From Good Ol Cotton Pickin Recipes, Burton Cotton Gin, Burton, TX"
Serving Size: 1 (613 g)
Servings Per Recipe: 1
"These were amazing! They were soft on the inside and a lovely crispness on the outside. My first batch didn't turn out too well because I dropped too big a spoonful and they ended up being huge blobs which looked cooked on the outside but were raw on the inside. I didnt realise this until after I'd finished and poked them with a toothpick. Anyways I threw that batch away And made a new one using smaller spoonfuls and they turned out fantastic! Such a easy recipe, thank you so much!"
"I created an account just to say how amazing these doughnuts are! My two-year old son asked for doughnuts for breakfast this morning. I was just going to make simple doughnuts from canned biscuits but we didn't have any canned biscuits. I found this recipe, and it's incredibly easy and oh-so delicious! The only change I made was substituting cinnamon for nutmeg because I'm not a fan of nutmeg and I didn't have any on hand. So yummy! A definite hit in my house for sure!"
"Amazingly easy and delicious! Thank you"
"Oh yeah really good! I want to said thank u put recipe.. It really very easy and cook... So I was add it lemon juice 1tsp put in more tasty! Really good!"
"Wonderful! And so easy! I grew up with my mom making doughnuts every Sat. morning with canned biscuits. I loved them! And now living in SA, I can't get the canned biscuits. I have tried many doughnut recipes and some of them have been very good but I was looking for something easy and delicious and now I have found it! Thanks! Made for ZWT6."
"These were simple to make, and similar to cake doughnuts. I was amazed at the amount of oil that they absorbed! I got 18 doughnuts that grew to twice their original size while frying. For ZWT6 N."
"Excellent!!! Thanks for posting!! I can't wait to suprise the kids with these."
"I made these today as Chanukah starts this evening. They were wonderful! The yeast doughnut recipes are too complex and take too long but this was terribly quick and simple. I added extra fresh ground nutmeg and they WERE incredible! I finished making them about an hour ago...now they're GONE! Thanks for posting!"
"Delicious and oh so easy to get together. I only made half the recipe. I used sugar and then also cinnamon and sugar for sprinkling, and loved them either way. I loved that it isn't just plain cake batter and the nutmeg added great flavor. Thanks Mama for posting, made for bevy tag."
"These were simple and easy. Made more than a dozen with this batch using a teaspoonful for each drop. They also cook quickly, with some crispiness on the outside but soft in the inside. Loved having this with coffee. DH said I should have used real sugar for the coating instead of sugar substitute to avoid the aftertaste. Will do that next time. Thanks!"
"These doughnuts were so fantastic that I ended up making two batches, which I shared with some of my neighbors. All of us have rated these wonderful. The doughnuts were crispy, with a soft and tender cake like inside and oh so flavorful. I rolled some in plain icing sugar, plain white sugar and in cinnamon sugar and also in icing sugar with nutmeg. All versions were very tasty and enjoyed by all. Thanks so much for sharing this lovely treat that was quick and easy to make."
"I loved the flavor and texture of these cake doughnuts, but something seemed off. They turned out too crisp and crumbly, so I didn't get to enjoy the great flavor until I got to the middle. I used canola oil, so I think that may have altered it some. Thanks for the recipe, I'm going to try it again with vegetable oil, and possibly less nutmeg."
"These were super good, super easy, and super gone!! I made up half a batch using 1 egg yolk. The kids and hubby ate 2 each and took the rest to school. We got 8 out of half a batch. I made them up with powdered sugar. I think I'll try with cinnamon sugar next time or maybe even a chocolate glaze. Thanks, mama's kitchen!"
"Yummy and easy. I used cinnamon and sugar to coat our doughnuts. I will definately be making these again."
