  • Preheat the oven to 350 F. Spray a medium sized donut pan with baking spray. 
  • Whisk together all of the donut ingredients in a medium sized bowl until smooth. Spoon the batter into a piping bag then cut the tip off to allow the donut batter to be piped out.
  • Fill each donut reservoir about half full with batter. Place the pan into the oven to bake for 9-12 minutes or until the donuts are golden and baked through.
  • Remove the pan from the oven and carefully flip the donuts out of the pan onto a parchment lined cooling rack. Fill the donut pan with batter and bake. Continue baking the donuts until all of the batter has been used. 


  • Once the donuts have cooled, make the frosting. Place all of the ingredients into a small mixing bowl. Whisk together well until a smooth frosting has formed.
  • Carefully dip each donut halfway into the frosting. Pull each donut up out of the glaze and let the excess drip off of each donut.
  • Place the donuts back onto the parchment lined cooling rack. Top the donuts with sprinkles. Let set for a few minutes to allow the frosting to set up before serving. 


Storage: Donuts may be stored in an airtight container or baggie at room temp for up to 3 days.
