Preparing to Bake

Transfer the donut batter into a plastic baggie. Cut a hole in one corner so you can easily pipe the batter into the greased donut pan.

Simple Glaze

To glaze the donuts, add about 3 tablespoons of powdered sugar into a small bowl with about 1 tablespoon of dairy free milk. Whisk together and dip the top of each donut into the glaze. 


Helpful Tips

Grease the donut pan before adding the batter. I used an avocado oil spray, but any non-stick spray will work. (Or coconut oil!) – I suggest using the Wilton donut pan for this recipe! It's just enough batter for 12 donuts and they do not stick to the pan. – You can spoon the batter into the donut pan, but I suggest using a piping bag or Ziplock baggie. (It's much easier!)
