I tried a very small batch of these just to see what they're like. I didn't care for them, because they're not 'cake' donuts. Real cake donuts aren't rolled out. These are more like dense sweet bread in the shape of a donut. I realize most recipes for cake donuts on the web seem to be for rolled-out donuts, but donut cutters in the bakery are actually for the fried yeast donuts, not cake donuts. In the bakery, cake donuts are made with a batter and are dropped onto oil with a dispenser. The dispensers aren't very expensive. And you can find dispensers on the web that come with a traditional cake donut recipe such as that used in bakeries. It's even possible to use boxed cake mixes by altering the amount of wet ingredients added to the batter to make other flavors of cake donuts. But I would not call the donuts in this recipe here 'cake' donuts, because it's not made from a batter, but rather a dough.
