Easy to Make Donuts

My kids love donuts, how many kids don't? They are always asking to go to Dunkin Donuts, my youngest has started a new con trick because we pass one on the way to school. He refuses to eat breakfast at home and then starts screaming how hungry he is as soon as we pass it, as we are dropping the oldest at school the little one starts yelling how I don't feed him and he is starving. Pretty manipulative for a 3yr old. It hasn't worked yet but he is still testing me to see if I relent.

I decided to try these at home to see if he will get over the chocolate sprinkles long enough to eat this yummy donut

We keep a premixed container with the cinnamon sugar mix so this is a step I rarely have to do. We use the mix for many other recipes or to put on buttered toast as a special treat.

      If they're easy they're for me. Been wanting to make doughnuts forever, but was always afraid to. You make it look like a real possibility!
