A delicious, inexpensive, and easy way to make 'homemade' donuts that your whole family will love. This recipe also works well for funnel cakes!
INGREDIENTS (for 5 servings):
- 1 (18.25 ounce) package moist cake mix, any flavor
- 1/2 cup flour
- 4 eggs
- 1 1/4 cups water
- 3 cups oil for frying, or as needed
- 1/4 cup confectioners' sugar for dusting
In a large bowl, combine the cake mix, flour, water, and eggs. Beat with an electric mixer on low speed for 5 minutes, or until batter is free of lumps.
Heat oil in a large, deep skillet until it reaches 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Using a small scoop equal to about 2 tablespoons, carefully drop batter into hot oil in batches so as not to overcrowd.
Cook donuts in hot oil for 5 minutes, or until golden brown, flipping once with a fork mid-way through for even cooking.
Carefully remove donuts from oil with slotted spoon or tongs, and drain on paper towels. Dust with confectioners' sugar before serving.
