Top 10: Baked Donuts

Get ready for some delicious baked donuts! From sprinkles to maple bacon, to blackberry lemon, you are sure to find a baked donuts recipe to bake soon!

I love a good donut but hate that you have no idea what is inside most donuts and the tired and gross feeling I normally have after I eat one.  My kids also love donuts, it makes them so happy in the moment but it also makes them super crazy afterwards; I never really understood the term “sugar high” until I had my kids. I recently learned that you can bake your own donuts at home using one of these donut baking pans and I was so excited about the idea that I bought one right away and have already started experimenting with donut recipes.  They don’t turn out just like the store donuts (they are more cake-like), but they are really good and the possibilities are endless.  I have already tried a few of the recipes and made a large batch of donuts, pictured above, using two dough recipes (lemon donuts from Leanne Bakes & cinnamon baked donuts from Ina Garten– without the cinnamon and nutmeg) and a variety of toppings including frosting with sprinkles, lemon glaze, butter with cinnamon and sugar, and glazed.  I can’t wait to make more donuts soon, my kids love them and I love that I can control the ingredients.  Here are ten donut recipes that look fantastic:
