This is great. My son wanted a donut cake for his third birthday. It really fit the bill. He was talking about it a few months later, and we just put one in the oven, his first cake making experience. Equally scrumptious for adults!

So easy and delicious. I adjusted for high altitude, 6800 feet. I reduced baking powder to 1 t and scooped out 3 T from the sugar. I added a sprinkle of cinnamon and extra nutmeg. It turned out very moist and I enjoyed the touch of cinnamon and extra nutmeg. It was so quick and easy to make I'm certain I'll be making this one again.
