Old-Fashioned Cake Doughnuts (Donuts)

There's nothing better than homemade doughnuts! I like cake donuts better than yeast donuts. This is how I make my favorite doughnuts for my family on the weekends. Real simple ingredients you already have on hand. The hardest part is letting the dough chill for an hour before frying them. You can make the dough the night before and have them ready to go in the morning, that's what I do ;) either douse them in cinnamon sugar or icing sugar or .....(you get the idea) I use a dough hook on my Stand Mixer which makes this real easy to whip up. NOTE: Prep time does not include chill time.
