Wilton, Baked Doughnuts and Sprinkles, Oh My!

As most of us already know, Wilton encompasses everything sugary-sweet and cake based, but did you also know they’ve got doughnut pans? Interesting right? I’ve never in my life baked a doughnut but I couldn’t wait to try when I saw these pans at the grocery store a few weeks ago.

On a slightly different note, I’m feeling very weird about spelling it “doughnut”. A quick Google search led me to find that it’s perfectly acceptable to spell it “donut” like I always have, just in case you were wondering.

Going back to the doughnut pans, there are actually two versions. The traditional size seen below and a really cute one with 12 mini doughnut cavities which I did use but overfilled and they turned out more like giant doughnut holes.

There’s an easy to follow recipe included on the doughnut pan packaging which I used to create these very simple cake doughnuts. While the doughnuts are quite tasty, I didn’t care for the nutmeg flavor. In fact, I will probably omit the ground nutmeg altogether the next time I make these.

That said, look how beautiful these turned out! They’re not quite as dense as I’ve traditionally felt in a cake doughnut but definitely not as airy as a regular one.

Coated in a vanilla bean glaze and topped with a chocolate glaze these little doughnuts fill the shoes of a coffee shop doughnut quite well when you need to fill an immediate craving from the comfort of your own kitchen.

Want to make these? You can purchase the Wilton Nonstick 6-Cavity Donut Pan for $9.99 or the Wilton Nonstick 12-Cavity Mini Donut Pan for $9.99, both on Amazon.com sold by Wilton.

And don’t forget the sprinkles … they’re important … and pretty!

    Did you dip the whole donut into the vanilla bean glaze then dip the tops in chocolate glaze? Did I read that right? YUMM!! Would you please share your recipe for your glazes?

    I just bought those pans too! And I made that recipe. I will definitely not be putting nutmeg in next time either.
    I think that this recipe could be altered super easily to make different flavours. (ie, add different extracts or spices, maybe some instant espresso powder, yum!)

    what i’m dying to find out is how do you make a healthy glazed donut? is it at all possible to bake it as well instead of frying?

    yum what a great idea to make with the kids! I wonder if they make a pan to make custard donuts

    They look delicious. Do they taste like doughnuts? Or are they more like a cake shaped like doughnuts?
