Tips for the perfect Baked Pancake Donuts
Don't overmix the batter: Mix batter until just combined, over mixing results in dense, donuts
Fill the batter in the donut pan just under ¾ full. This way, the donuts bake to the perfect thickness with better texture compared to thinner donuts.
Top with your favorite pancake or donut toppings: Suggestions
- melted chocolate
- Cinnamon sugar
- Maple syrup
- Powdered sugar
Use a metal non stick donut pan for the best results.
Storage: These pancake donuts are best served warm and on the same day they have been prepared.

What ingredients did you use in the glace? What did you use to make it pink? Can't wait to make these.Diane

Hi Diane, here is the recipe I use for the glace:
mix 1 ½ cups (170g) powdered / icing sugar with
2-3 tablespoons of hot water.
For the pink color I used a tiny drop of soft pink gel food coloring.
If you don't have gel coloring, then a skewer dipped in any light or soft pink coloring and dropped into the glace will get you the perfect color.
Whisk all the ingredients well until silky and smooth and dip one side of the donuts into the glaze. Place the glazed donuts onto a wire rack. Allow excess glaze to drip off the donuts.
I hope this helps 🙂
Happy baking 🙂
