My taste testers flipped for these mouthwatering doughnut holes. Each one is packed with lots of sweet cinnamon-y goodness, and only clocks in at an amazing 40 calories a pop! And, did I mention the recipe is ridiculously simple?

  • Prep time
  • Total Time
This recipe makes 1 doughnut hole


  • 1 package extra moist vanilla or white cake mix
  • 1 cup unsweetened applesauce
  • 1 cup water

Cinnamon-Sugar Topping

  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • ⅛ teaspoon cinnamon (sprinkle more if you prefer a stronger cinnamon flavor)
  • 1 teaspoon butter
Preheat oven to 325˚. In large bowl, mix together cake mix, unsweetened apple sauce and water. Spray doughnut hole pan (or mini muffin pan) with oil spray. Spoon the batter into the pan, then bake according to pan’s instructions. Bake for 10 to 15 minutes, or until doughnut holes are golden brown and toothpick comes out clean.


Cinnamon-Sugar Topping:

In small bowl, mix sugar and cinnamon.

In a separate small bowl, melt butter for about 10 seconds in the microwave. Brush melted butter onto each doughnut, then dip the top of each doughnut hole into cinnamon and sugar mixture. Enjoy warm.
