24 Baked Donut Recipes That Taste Even Better Than Fried

    Easy prep, less mess. Why fry when you can bake?

    If you've never made homemade donuts before, they can seem intimidating. 🍩

    But they're really not! Especially if you go the easy baked donuts route. Not only does baking (instead of frying) donuts cut down on prep, cleanup, and potential mess, but you'll also find that the end results are just as delicious, if not more so.

    When baking donuts, there are a couple things that are nice to have, though they're not required. With traditional O-shaped donuts, a non-stick baking donut pan can come in really handy. If you're making donut holes, you can bake those on a regular sheet pan or in a mini-muffin tin. If you're making filled donuts, pipe the filling in using a pastry bag with a tip or a Ziploc bag with a corner cut off.
