Tasty Treats Thursday {Cake Donuts}

Since donuts are all the rage, how about a cake doughnut recipe today. I searched for a simple recipe that didn't require frying, instead these sweet cakes are baked! Let mess and maybe a few less calories! When and if I can get some baking done this weekend, I definitely want to try these out, OH but a doughnut pan would be helpful...hmmm oh what to do what to do! Amazon here I come!!
