Donut Making 101

Yeast doughnuts, as the name clearly spells out, are made from dough leavened with yeast (think brioche), whereas cake doughnuts are traditionally made from a kind of cake batter that uses a chemical leavener (i.e. baking powder or baking soda).  My personal favorite are cake doughnuts.  I just remember them being more apart of my experience growing up.
