I like to call these cakenuts cause they’re doughless. Although they take about 10 minutes to make I can assure you that you will enjoy these with a cup of coffee.
My little cousins loved these. I think most children prefer vanilla donuts over chocolate. Although I prefer chocolate I have to admit these were delicious and did I mention it takes about 10 minutes to make?
