This is an amazing recipe. It is very simple and mine came out with amazing results. They dont taste like doughnuts as much as they do as taste like cake., but still taste great

These are awful! I was expecting the flavor and texture of a cake doughnut with the ease of a muffin. Boy was I disappointed. Yes, they are easy, but a huge disappointment to break open a warm, dry nutmeg flavored muffin.

These remind me of my mom's drop donuts that she would sometimes make on Saturdays. We always loved them and my kids love these.
