This recipe is from a sweet missionary friend that was with us in Zambia for a few years. We had a lot of good times together and I loved going to visit them. Uncle Mark is one of the BEST story tellers I have ever heard. Most of the time I don't know if the story is true or made up but he holds you captive in his stories that is for sure. He has served in many branches of the military and has been deploy a few times. Aunt Stacey is an awesome mom and has held down the fort with 5 kids while Uncle Mark was deployed. They are now missionaries in Kenya.
Aunt Stacey has a great recipe for Cake doughnuts! I am usually a fluffy yeast dough kind of a doughnut eater but these are really good! I love the flavor of the nutmeg and cinnamon that these give and they are super easy to make. They also make a good Fall kind of doughnut to eat. So if you are looking for a sweet cake like doughnut to eat. Try these!
