  • 1/4 Cup Powdered Sugar 
  • 3 Tablespoons Milk 

Special Equipment:

  • Doughnut Pan 


  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F 
  2. Spray the doughnut pan with non-stick cooking spray

  7. Bake for 10-14 minutes 
  8. Allow cooling on the counter, in a doughnut pan for 15 minutes  
  9. Remove doughnuts from pan, and allow to cool before dipping in glaze 

Directions for Simple Glaze:

  1. In a bowl add the powdered sugar, and 1 tablespoon of milk 
  2. Mix together with a fork, and add milk as needed to achieve desired consistency 
  3. Dip the doughnuts in the glaze, and allow the glaze to set before eating



If you do not have non-stick cooking spray you can utilize butter. 

Use a tablespoon to fill the doughnut pan, which will give you uniform doughnuts. Each doughnut should be around 3 tablespoons of batter.

When baking the doughnuts will rise, to help on potential clean up; place doughnut pan on tin foil lined baking sheet.
