Easy Cinnamon Sugar Doughnut Holes
An easy way to make doughnut holes using cake mix!
Author: Jessica H.
  • 1 box yellow cake mix
  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 cup of water
  • Ground cinnamon
  • Sugar
  • Caramel candies optional
  1. Preheat oven to 350┬║ and spray a mini muffin pan with non-stick cooking spray.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk the cake mix, egg, vegetable oil, and water together until well combined.
  3. Spoon batter into mini muffin pan.  Less is more in this case as the doughnut holes will rise and you'll end up with mini doughnut muffins instead!
  4. Bake 18-20 minutes, or golden brown.
  5. In a small bowl, mix some cinnamon and sugar together.
  6. While doughnut holes are still warm, roll them in cinnamon sugar to cover completely.
  7. Serve warm or allow to cool completely.
  8. Store doughnut holes in an airtight container.
Recipe Notes

To fill doughnut holes, cut a caramel candy in half. Press half of a caramel candy into cake mix batter and bake.
