(made with our Make-a-Cake Mix sold at Lassens, Mother's Market, and Von's Pavilion Stores throughout So Cal, our website,,,

The outside is crunchy, the slightly sweet dough holds together nicely, and the texture satisfying to bite into. When you pick one up between your fingers, it is squeezable.
• 1 1/4 cup of Arnel’s Originals Make-a-Cake Mix
• 1/2 cup sugar
• 1/4 cup Earth Balance Margarine (or coconut oil with 1/4 teaspoon sea salt)
• 1/3 cup Buttermilk (mix milk of your choice + 1/2 teaspoon apple cider vinegar and set aside)
• 2 eggs

• 1 teaspoon vanilla
• oil - for frying
• 1/4 cup sugar
• 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
(for coating the finished doughnut hole)
Measure 1/14 cup of Arnel’s Originals Make-a-Cake Mix in a bowl and set it aside
In a separate bowl, beat the next 4 ingredients.
Add the cake flour and beat again.
Fill a small pot with 2” of cooking oil.
When the oil is hot, drop scoopfuls of dough into the hot oil (I used a #70 pastry scoop)
Within 5 minutes, each doughnut hole is browned on both sides and fully cooked
Remove doughnut hole with a toothpick and drain in a paper towel.
While still warm, roll in sugar/cinnamon
