Baked Donuts (Yeast free)

Baked Doughnuts

These baked donuts are yeast-free and taste delicious. These are easy to make as they are made in a donut pan, hence a no-knead recipe. They can be made in a jiffy (just 15 min!!) whenever the kids demand for donuts.

These donuts are soft and cakey and generously coated in cinnamon powdered sugar. You can make any toppings of your choice.

No donut pans? You can bake these in a muffin pan. Add a ball of aluminum foil at the center of each muffin tin.
