Bring a few inches of water to a boil in a pan; remove from heat. Place bowl over water and let stand, stirring occasionally, until smooth, about 10 minutes.
With a 3-inch doughnut cutter, cut out doughnuts. I just used a biscuit cutter.
Pat together scraps of dough and cut again. Place doughnuts on a well-floured baking sheet.
I used well floured fingers to get the hole in the middle, make sure the hole is large or when frying, it will close up.
Let stand until glaze is set, about 5 minutes.
These were delicious cake donuts and I could have made myself sick on the glaze, yum, yum.
Also, next time I will halve the recipe. I had 4 hungry kids eating these and we didn’t come close to finishing them.
