These cheesy donuts by Savor Easy on YouTube are unique because they are a sweet and savory treat. I’ve never seen a sugared donut that’s filled with cheddar cheese, but I love the idea of it and it’s simple to make. The tutorial has step by step instructions and they are easy to follow along. The cheesy donuts have a perfect golden brown color on the outside. These donuts look amazing with the cheese oozing out. Even without the filling, the donuts look amazing. Plus, you can add any other fillings if you want to explore other options such as cream or chocolate.
First, make the donut dough and place it in an oiled bowl to rest for an hour or until it doubles its size. Meanwhile, make the cheese filling and set it aside. Then, flatten out the dough and cut out the donuts in a circular shape and let it rest for an additional 30 minutes. Fry the donuts over medium-low heat or until golden brown.

Next, use a filler tube pipe to fill in the cheese filling into the sugar donuts.
Overall, I want to make these cheesy donuts because they seem like a satisfying salty, and sweet treat to have in the morning or for a midday snack. The dough looks perfectly soft and fluffy. I think this recipe can be a hit or miss because of the unusual mixture of flavors, but they remind me of a cream cheese danish but in donut form.
