Cake Doughnuts
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.

Sam's Famous Carrot Cake
I followed this recipe exactly, and I did not care for this. This is not really a cake at all. Flour in this cake is a minority ingredient. The cake comes out smelling like an oily, eggy carrot omelet, and tastes like one too. It has a bread pudding texture. And no it doesn't help to refrigerate it overnight like some said. It didn't meet the minimum standards I have to be able to serve to people and say that I made it without being embarrassed. This is no award-winning cake. BTW, the cream cheese frosting II that people used is also not to my taste. It's not really a frosting at all, but a very cheap cream cheese filling. A cream cheese frosting would start out with a vanilla frosting base and then some cream cheese would be added to give it flavor and mellow out the sweetness. This recipe is simply a sweetened block of cream cheese with some extra fat added -- a cream cheese "filling". A word of advice: while there are many good recipes
