These cupcakes combined the fried goodness of a doughnut with the cake-y softness and taste of a cupcake! Fill them with your favorite filling and trim however you please.
Step 1: Cupcake ingredients
The cupcake on the inside of the "doughnut" is just your average yellow cake. The recipe I used is from thecupcakerecipe.com, it makes 12 cupcakes.
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour (spooned and leveled)
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup milk
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, room temperature
3/4 cup sugar
2 large eggs
