Baked Donut Recipe

Baked donuts are one of my favorite things to whip up for a fun sweet treat. They are so simple and take no time at all to bake. With just a few simple ingredients you are likely to have on hand, you can make these donuts in one mixing bowl. I add everything all at once and they turn out beautifully. The icing sprinkled with crushed gingersnap cookies for that extra sweet touch.Β Enjoy!

    These look so good! Do you think they would rise a bit better if you tossed in some baking soda to counteract the acidity of the. buttermilk and molasses?
