Baked Funfetti Birthday Cake Donuts
There’s really nothing bad that you can say about donuts. They’re perfectly round, totally sweet, and just have the ability to make people who don’t care for mornings, love them.
And best of all, you can’t ignore the beautiful rainbows of colors. When it comes to making your very own donuts at home, you’re in for a true treat.
Stop buying those premade donuts at the store and whip up your own batch at home instead.
Why are my donuts sticking to the pan?
More than likely, you just didn’t grease the donut pan enough. Make certain that you really give it a good coating so that the donuts don’t stick. And if they are still sticking, you might need to upgrade your pan or try another method of greasing the tin.
How do I know when the donuts are done baking in the oven?
The easiest way to tell if the donuts are done baking is to do the toothpick test with them. All you need to do is insert a clean toothpick into the donut. If it comes out clean, the pan of donuts is ready to be pulled out to start cooling.
If it comes out of the donut with batter on it, they’re going to need to cook for another short time.
Don’t delay in making these homemade baked donuts. They’re such a special treat!
