Mom's Cheat Doughnuts
These were a rare and special treat my Mother would make for my brother and I when we were young. The topping I listed is sugar and cinnamon because that is what we always had as children. But these quick doughnuts can be topped with any number of things such as a chocolate glaze, powdered sugar or even a plain glaze sprinkled with nuts.
