Easy Baked Cake Donuts

Cake donuts are tender and delightful! And the best part about this recipe? These fluffy donuts are baked not fried.

Baked donuts are such an easy way to bring a little bit of the donut shop right to your kitchen. No donut maker or bread machine needed. These donuts take about 30 minutes to make start to finish!

– All purpose flour –Cake flour –Baking powder –Baking soda –Salt –Ground nutmeg –Eggs –Brown sugar –Whole milk –Sour cream –Unsalted butter –Vanilla

No mixer needed for this recipe!  However, I highly recommend these donut pans (inexpensive) but they make great at home donuts for breakfast and snacks. You can use a muffin pan.

This recipe is easily halved. Half the recipe will yield about 8 donuts

The donut cavities will look like they're not filled enough, however, if you overfill them, the donut holes will be covered when the donuts bake. To attain the perfect donut shape, fill the wells of the donut pan only ⅔ full.

If you do not have a pastry bag, use a ziplock bag with the corner cut off to pipe out the donut batter. I do this often and it's a great little trick.

Cinnamon sugar and powdered sugar make easy toppings for these baked cake donuts!
