This easy homemade donut recipe from Wilton starts with your everyday basic ingredients all prepared in one bowl. Then it’s baked in a donut pan for less than 10 minutes. There are only two tablespoons of butter in the whole recipe and the fact that it’s baked not fried makes it a much healthier choice. It also means you can eat more donuts!

It’s topped with a festive pink glaze and colorful sprinkles to celebrate the lovely occasion. I’m so happy for Katherine and the arrival of her little princess.These baked donuts are soft, fluffy, and so much healthier than fried donuts, but just as tasty! #vanilladonuts #bakeddonuts #homemadedonuts #vanillaglaze #glazeddonuts

The texture of these donuts is similar to a cake and they taste like an old-fashioned donut. They are soft, moist and fragrant with an extra touch of sweetness from the glaze. They are so easy to prepare and better for you than store-bought donuts.
