Update 9/29/2016….Since the writing of this post there have been LOADS of ways to add free donuts to your game from within the game. Here are some quick ways to add them, with the breakdowns of how:

–Where’s Maggie Game, Maggie will unlock for you at Level 26 with the Play-Annoyed Grunt questline. You’ll have a shot at 1,2 or 3 free donuts after you find Maggie 3 times. Game resets every 16hrs.
–Daily Challenges. Each day you’ll be given a challenge to complete, frequently these challenges award free donuts!
–Rail Yard. The Monorail will unlock for you once you’ve reached Level 20. Each week at the Monorail you’ll be able to earn tracks and other prizes..and the fifth prize (with the exception of a couple of times) will award free donuts! (typically five free donuts. But some of the initial rounds will award 20 free donuts)
–XP/Donut Farming. This is a method of building/placing some items in your game to build up your XP quickly and level up rapidly. Each time you level up you’ll be awarded at least 1 free donut! This method usually involves turning on the XP Collider.
–Friend Visits. After you’ve unlocked all of the social prizes there’s a chance to earn donuts from tapping in a neighbor’s town.
-There’s also often opportunities to earn free donuts during various events.
-Oh and one thing I forgot to mention in the post below is the 10 free donuts from the Easter Egg in the Jeb StatueEaster Egg in the Jeb Statue…
“There’s got to be a way to get free donuts!” Well, unfortunately, because the fried deliciousness treat is the premium content for the game (i.e. the only thing in the game that costs real world cash money) freebies don’t come easy. And anyone who tells you they can get you donuts for free (or discounted) is most likely using a hacked version of the game…
-First and foremost sign up for an origin account…you get 2 FREE donuts just for creating an account.
-The best way to get donuts is by leveling up in the game. So far every level increase comes with a bit of sarcastic humor and free donuts. From levels 1-7 you receive a 1 donut bonus for leveling up and once you hit level 8 2 donut bonuses for leveling up start to appear but you don’t get 2 donuts for every level.
Here’s the breakdown (as of the Krustyland Update, levels 1-32):
Levels 1-7, 9-10, 12, 14-16, 18-19, 21-23, 25-26, 28-30 & 32 all have a 1 donut bonus for leveling up
Levels 8, 11, 13, 17, 20, 24, 27 & 31 all have a 2 donut bonus for leveling up.
So that’s 40 donuts right there, just for leveling up! That’s pretty easy right?
-There is also a 3 donut bonus once you complete all of the level 30 quests, a little present from EA since the level 30 update was not exactly their best.
-If you haven’t already done so, do the Jebediah Springfield Statue bonus (see the “I saw _______ in my neighbor’s town, but I can’t figure out how to add it to mine” post for details in how to complete it). That little trick comes with 10 free donuts, plus you get a free statue of Jebediah Springfield for your town!
So we’re at a total of 55 donuts guaranteed in this game, JUST FOR PLAYING, not too bad.
There are some other ways to get donuts in this game, but the quantities are not guaranteed:
-You usually find a few donuts when you clean up your Springfield. Personally, I’ve found a total of 8 donuts while doing this but it does take a while.
-Sometimes EA will run a promotion that comes with free donuts (they did this at Christmas and Halloween). So be on the lookout for those!
-In Krustyland you earn 5 donuts for every 299 games of Sideshow You that you play…playing this game perfectly every 8 hours would result in 5 donuts every 100 days.
-Bonus Level Up, between 1-3 donuts. Bonus level appears when you’ve maxed out available levels and you continue to fill you XP bar. More details on this later.
Aside from going behind a bakery when they close to dig out the donuts that have been trashed for the day, those are all the, non-hacked, free ways (that I know of) to get donuts.
