  1. Impress your family or guest with homemade cake doughnuts. Best of all they will taste like they just came from the bakery. No one will ever know how easy they were to make. Don’t think you have to make them for breakfast alone, these sweets are a real treat anytime. They are best cooked in the deep fryer. But can be made on the stove in a deep kettle. You can serve them plain, with a drizzle icing, or sprinkled with powder sugar. No matter what you choose, you can’t go wrong. Don’t forget to fry up those doughnut holes also. Very yummy!
