Baked donuts

I had a rediscovery of a donut pan that my grandma sent me a couple of years ago, it was great because I didn't have to cook them in oil I just baked them in the oven and they tasted just as good if not better than deep fried, not to mention are a lot healthier for you. This is the pan that she sent me, its from Norpro.
I have been perfecting the amount of batter that should go into them as well as decorating them. I think that I finally got it!! These were gone by the next day. I used the recipe that came on the back of wrapper of the pan.
I dipped half of them in cinnamon sugar and the other half was glazed.

Cake Donuts

2c flour
3/4 c sugar
2tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
1 T butter, melted
2 eggs, beaten
3/4 c milk
1 tsp vanilla
1/4 tsp nutmeg
1/4 tsp cinnamon

Preheat oven to 325 degrees F. Lightly spray Donut Pan with cooking oil. In bowl mix together flour, sugar, baking powder, salt. Add butter, eggs, milk, vanilla, nutmeg, and cinnamon. Beat until well blended. Fill each donut hole 2/3 full. Bake 8 minutes or until tops spring back when lightly touched. Cool. Remove from pan and dip into glaze. Decorate with sprinkles, nuts, shaved chocolate or coconut. Donuts may also be dipped into cinnamon and sugar instead of the glaze. When the pan has cooled, wipe clean with cloth or paper towel and repeat process. Yields approximately 36 mini donuts.

I want to also try them in muffin pans and see how it turns out. I hope that everyone enjoys them as much as we did.
