If you haven’t tried making baked donuts, I encourage you to give them a try. All you need is donut pans plus cooking spray. You could use silicone donut pans but I prefer the metal ones from Wilton. Use disposable icing bags and fill them with batter and pipe into the donut pans. I just cut about an 1/2 inch opening at the bottom and it is then easy to pipe the donut batter into the donut pans. Give them a light tap to tampen down batter before baking.

Now that I have made a variety of gluten-free baked donuts like hummingbird donuts, baked donuts, lemon poppyseed donuts and keto lemon donuts, I feel no need to make deep-fried ones.
