Wanted to post my thoughts on ways to get Donuts in Tapped Out. Of course, you can always buy them with real money, but I'm interested in picking the community's brain for cheap donuts.
Here's what I've got:
1. Level up. You usually get 1-2 donuts when you go up a level.
2. Clean up Springfield. Lisa and Homer can uncover donuts when they perform the Clean Up Springfield task about 1 every 5 times (I would estimate). Note that Premium items can also be uncovered when cleaning up Springfield (I found a Burning Bush, for example). My guess is that this is a random system with low odds.
3. Connect with friends. The I-Choo-Choo-Choose You quest will give you a donut for adding friends (or at least, for the versions I've completed).
4. Answer the Mayan God's question correctly the 1st time. It's in the small print. He'll give you 10 donuts for this.
Anyone else find anything else?
Solved! Go to Solution.

You can (rarely) get dounts from a mystery box.
Got 30 in one mystery box right after buying a boatload... (Then EA lost my level-22 Springfield (not to mention my 1,724 remaining donuts and all the premium content).

Unfortunately there are not that many ways of getting free donuts in the game.
I think the only other way of getting free donuts is buy getting a Homer Buddah, but from what I have read both of these should be avoided as using donuts to get them is no guarantee of getting donuts back in return.
Effectively the only way to get enough donuts to do anything worth while is buying them with your hard earned cash and I think the general consensus of opinion is that they are far too expensive in comparison to other similar iOS or PS3 etc games.

Do the donuts appear after the tenth or so tap or after the quest is complete? On my second attempt now and of both possible outcomes in my question so far the former hasn't worked. Thanks!

I tried it first by tapping then resetting the bar that appeared, which reminded me of the time Homer had remaining in the pool. Next, I tried tapping in rapid succession, which worked. I think it only took 10 taps, but I wasn't counting because I was tapping too fast.
