Simple is good. This Raised Donut Recipe is fast and delicious. There is not a lot of prep time if you are in a hurry. The kids will love it. Use the topping of your choice.
I kind of mixed it up a little bit, using sugar and cinnamon, chocolate glaze and left some just plain. The recipe made 2 dozen. Don’t forget to cook them donut holes.
