Baked Spiced Cake Doughnuts

Baking doughnuts, rather than frying them, is a great way to enjoy a tasty breakfast treat with fewer calories and fat. Since they are not fried, these doughnuts can keep for several days in an air-tight container, assuming that you don't eat them all.

  • 3 tablespoons milk
