Baked Vanilla Doughnuts

Did you know that you can make baked doughnuts at home? Well, you can! The recipe is pretty easy too! The hardest part for me was finding the doughnut baking trays. I ended up finding some at Big W for around $10 and found the mini-sized ones on eBay.


Baking and Glazing Tips

  • Do not overfill the tin, only fill it half way to allow for the dough to rise.
  • To fill the tray, cut the corner off a Ziploc bag and use that to move slowly around.
  • If you want light and fluffy doughnuts, do not over mix the mixture.
  • When glazing the doughnuts, dip them into the glaze, wait 5 minutes for it to set and then dip it into the glaze again if you want a thick glaze.
