Tips For Making Baked Donuts

To make this recipe you’ll need a donut pan.

You can use a large Ziploc storage bag or a piping bag if you prefer to add batter to pan. Just scoop the batter into the bag and cut a good 1/2 inch to an inch off the corner of your bag. The opening needs to be large enough to fit blueberries through. Or you can just add the batter to the donut pan with a large spoon.

Cooking time is between 8 to 10 minutes. Since ovens heating elements can vary I recommend checking them at 8 minutes. If toothpick inserted in donut comes out clean they are done.

Gather all your ingredients before you start to make it easier and save time.
