    My favorite doughnuts are apple fritters… or maybe maple bars… or maple cake doughnuts. Hmm, hard to decide!

  2. Emily

    I love Bavarian Cream donuts! But I’ll be happy with a nice chocolate-glazed chocolate cake donut in a pinch 😉

  3. mindi wheeler

    glazed are my favorite! I saw your pumpkin recipe for baked donuts and would LOVE to give them a try!! Fingers crossed!

  4. I love any donut with maple icing! I was just telling my husband tonight, that I need this pan – to make these donuts! I hope I win one!! 😀

  5. Mitchell

    My favorite is the chocolate glazed from Dunkin Donuts, my grandma used to have them on the table for me when I woke up at her house as a kid.

  6. Amy F.

    My daughter was a donut for Halloween last year so this pan would definitely be for her. She’s a tad bit donut obsessed… her favorite is the Nutella cream filled donut from our local gourmet donut shop in town.


    Must I choose? It is a rare treat now that I am no longer a kid…long johns—that is what they are called(or were when I was little)in Northern Illinois. the llong donut with frosting in the center (not custard) and glaze on top. Love the frosting in the middle the best!

  8. Crissy

    The orignial glazed donut is my favorite. All of the KK went out of business, around here, years ago, but I’ve found the Pioneer Woman’s glazed donut recipe to be a very delicious substitute!

  9. Meli

    I love all kinds-old-fashioned sour cream donuts, chocolate iced, Krispy Kreme, or cream-filled-I can’t choose!

  10. GingerB

    I love any of them filled with boston cream. but not filled with that whipped icing type stuff. it has to be the pudding cream stuff

  11. Carrie P

    I don’t have a donut pan, but would LOVE one to make your pumpkin donut recipe. My bakery makes an applesauce cake donut in the fall that is delicious.

  12. Jenette

    I just made pumpkin doughnut holes!!!! I love all of these recipes and so does my fiance! next is apple cider doughnuts!

  13. cheryl

    doughnuts…mmmm!!! my favorites are the cream filled and when the Hot and Ready sign is lit at Krispy Kreme and the glazed are fresh off the conveyor belt….they melt in your mouth!!!

  14. Katie Rose

    Anything chocolate! Plain Chocolate doughnut, chocolate with frosting, chocolate with glaze, vanilla doughnut with chocolate frosting, you name it. Oooh or a Boston Cream (hmm, also has chocolate! 😉 ) Great, now I’m getting hungry over here!

  15. Megan

    I don’t know what they are called – but they are cakey and fried and easy to pull apart and topped with chocolate frosting. Always the best part of helping to serve donuts after church!

  16. Carson

    I love ALL donuts… but I guess my favorite would have to be the kind that are covered in shredded coconut. YUM.

  17. Elizabeth

    My very favorite donuts are the Cider Mill ones you can get here in Michigan. Some are subtly cider flavored, others are just a normal cake donut….but all of them are freshly fried and dipped in cinnamon sugar. Nothing else compares to a cider mill donut!

  18. Kelly

    Perfect timing – I was just looking at your pumpkin donut recipe this morning but did not print it to make bc I do not own a donut pan. I wanted to try to make those – and maybe some apple cider donuts too. My favorite donuts are yeast based.

  19. Carol

    My favorite is blueberry cake donuts. Or anything glazed with sprinkles on it!!!!!! I love the color pop that sprinkles add, and if you are going to eat a ‘cake’ it might as well have sprinkles!

  20. Laina Wolf

    This would be awesome! My favorite donut is what locally we call Pittsburgh Creme – white cream filled donut with a chocolate glaze. Yummy!

  21. Megan J

    I loooooove the ones Dunkin Donuts has that have chocolate frosting as a filling! Can’t say I’ve ever had a homemade donut, but I’m eager to try one!

  22. I hope I win! I’ve been searching for this pan here in our town for a week or two and can’t find it. I didn’t want to order it and now I know why–Because I’m going to win one!!!!!!

  23. Melanie Hall

    My favorite is a cake donut with strawberry frosting and rainbow sprinkles. Reminds me of when I was little

  24. Jessica

    I absolutely LOVE donuts! My favorite is a maple pine cone, but I’m really not too picky at all. I would love to be able to make donuts at home.

  25. Alexa

    Normally I would say plain vanilla donuts, but wow I would love to try the pumpkin donut recipe you just posted!

  26. Lyda P

    Hands down….my favorite donuts are maple frosted donuts. I love them all year round, but even more so in the fall and winter!

  27. Jen H.

    I’ve only tried the plain donuts. And with the help of my daughter, they are covered in sprinkles. I can’t wait to try out your recipe for the pumpkin donuts.

  28. First of all, even though I’m from the Krispy Kreme Kapital, I prefer Dunkin’ Donuts. I forgive them for not making my absolute favorite doughnut any more, but I’d sing their praises even more if they’d bring it back. It’s a glazed chocolate cake doughnut with a chocolate frosting. I think what they offer now is just plain chocolate cake with the chocolate frosting. You wouldn’t think a simple glaze would make such a difference, but it does.

  29. Shona Parker

    My favorite ALL TIME FAVORITE is the Maple Bacon Donut!!! Mmm mm mm, it was my go to crave when I was preggers with my daughter!!! Love it!!!

  30. Angie C

    I LOVE apple cider donuts. I’ve always wanted to make my own, but haven’t ever been brave enough. This would be such a fun thing to win!

  31. Mary

    I LOOOOOOVE pumpkin doughnuts!!!! I will be making your pumpkin ice cream ones you posted the other day if I win!!

  32. tonya king

    My favorite will always be a simple, hot n frsh glazed doughnut. Sometimes with chocolate but usually glazed. Call me weird….

  33. Angie Robinson

    My favorite donut is definately boston cream. YUM!!!!!!!!!! But I really want to make these pumpkin ones!

  34. katie Huskins

    A chocolate iced kreme filled Krispy Kreme. I have never made homemade donuts…but now seems like a good time to start!

  35. Andie Bodenhagen

    My favortite is a blueberry cake donut with a blueberry glaze on top!! Yummy!! Fingers crossed to win!!

  36. Sarah Taylor

    I’m thinking they are all pretty yummy. Can you go wrong with a doughnut? 😀
    But my all time favorites are the blueberry cake doughnuts..especially when they are completely saturated in glaze!

  37. Jamie R

    My favorite would definitely have to be apple cider donuts, especially when they’re still warm 🙂 As much as I love anything and everything pumpkin, I’ve never had a pumpkin donut! I’ll definitely have to make some if I win!

  38. “Mmmmmm donuts” said in my best Homer Simpson voice.
    Hands down, favorite donuts are old fashioned. Love them, would love to make them!
    Thanks for the chance. I went looking for this pan at Michaels yesterday and they didn’t have any left. Darn it all!

  39. Shari Moon

    I have always loved baked chocolate donuts covered in chocolate ganache = YUMMY! One bite takes me instantly back to my childhood. Dad would get up Saturday morning and buy donuts for cartoon time. Would love to try the Wilton pan.

  40. Melissa Jones

    My favorite donut is either a regular glazed donut or a hot cinnamon and sugar donut. Yum! The Wilton donut pan looks like so much fun for making homemade donuts. Can’t wait to try this out…Melissa

  41. Cindy

    Boston Cremed filled with Chocolate icing – great now my cravings are stirred up and my mouth is watering 🙂

  42. Brooke

    Old Fashion Donuts. My Dad and I use to get them on Saturdays, when I was a child. I would always get what he got and in time his favorite became my favorite!! 🙂

  43. My favorite donuts are the apple cider donuts at the apple orchard here in CA. A donut shop favorite are cinnamon glazed. I would love to make some of these pumpkin glazed ones!

  44. Martha

    Pumpkin Spice donuts are my favorite and so love this time of year for them. But I do love cream filled ones from Krispy Kreme. Yum!!

  45. Nicole

    My favorite donut would probably be a boston cream donut! Or a chocolate frosted chocolate cake donut! Mmm!!! (being deployed sure makes you crave donuts!)

  46. My favorite doughnut is from Congdon’s in Wells, ME. While all their doughnuts area absolutely amazing, their maple cream is what does it for me. They have a lovely golden dough with white cream in the middle…which I love so much than Bavarian cream. It’s all topped off with maple frosting…not glaze but definitley more of a frosting. Now I’ve got myself all needy for one…too bad they are 100 miles away…ha!!! ; )

  47. Cathy

    I love all cake donuts and would love to make your pumpkin donuts. I have a donut pan on my wish list at Amazon but if I win yours, I can take it off my list.

  48. Apple cider donuts in the fall, but chocolate cake donuts with chocolate frosting the rest of the year!!! Hoping I win a pan, but even if i don’t I’m buying one on Saturday to make these pumpkin donuts! Thanks for the chance 🙂

  49. Jenn Cho

    Bombolinis. Stopped in a cafe in Italy this month and I will never be the same. OMG, beats any ol donut anyday! Pure Heaven in my mouth!

  50. Missie

    Well my favorite I really have 2 kinds. First of all we have a little bakery here in my town and they make the best donut holes ever. In fact you have to call early in the morning or get there befor 7 am. if you want any (they are the bomb!!). My other favorite is a maple grazed donut Yummy! I hope I win could use a donut pan that would be AWSM. Thanks for the chance.

  51. katee

    I used to work at a donut shop and I loved the maple bars. Your recipe looks yummy though and may rival the maple bars…I think I need a donut pan to make a correct evaluation. 🙂

  52. Robin

    What kind don’t I love? Blueberry cake, lemon filled, french cruller, plain, cinnamon, jelly, creme filled. Oh, I know… maple bacon bar from Voo Doo Donuts in Portland, OR!

  53. anna velasco

    My favorite donuts are homemade pumking donuts ,and my kids enjoy baking with me,I let the put their favorite topping!!

  54. Dawn Heath

    Any donut is a good donut! Too hard to pick just one, but I do have to say that chocolate frosted are always at the top of my list.

  55. Verla Schupbach

    Pumpkin!! I love chai tea and to me, a pumpkin donut reminds me of that flavor. All the warm spices of the season. Would love to have a pan to create these gems in!

  56. Samantha

    My favorite doughnuts are the one covered in chocolate ganache and filled with creme. Yum!

    I have a mini doughnut pan, but not the full size.

    Thanks for the giveaway!

  57. Gosh, what isn’t my favorite kind of donut? I love ’em filled, glazed, frosted, powdered, sprinkled…

    I guess my favey fave is chocolate glazed, fresh and warm!

  58. Jey

    It’s a tie between sour cream glazed donuts from Tim Horton’s and any regular bavarian creme donut. 🙂 Mmm…. donut….

  59. Annmarie johnson

    I adore cream filled long johns (as they are known in SD, never saw them in WI, and out here in Maine, I find them in just one donut shop called angel puffs or something like that).

  60. Kimmy

    I love ALL donuts, but if I had to pick a favorite…I would have to say a raspberry filled jelly donut with frosting! Ahhh! 😀

  61. garysgirl

    I love cinnamon sugar donuts as well as glazed!! 🙂 And I would absolutely love to win a free donut pan! One is actually on my bday wish list and my bday is on Tuesday! 😉

  62. Linda

    Boston Creme filled, or custard Creme filled, or chocolate Creme filled, or well…you get the Creme filled point!

  63. Monica

    My favorite doughnut was one I was introduced to this year by a co-worker. She brought in the MOST FABULOUS coffee cake doughnut from Sweeties in Belleville, PA. OH MY GOD. It was stuffed with white cream, covered in cinnamon sugar, and a coating of powdered sugar. Oh yes. I have dreams of that doughnut. You really should call them and have some shipped. You’ll see what I mean 🙂

  64. Stacie Austad

    My favorite is classic donut with chocolate glaze, I do love a good vanilla pudding inside though! This would be a fun tradition to start every year, I’d love to win!

  65. Cheyenna

    I absolutely love chocolate donuts with chocolate glaze! There can never be enough chocolate in my book! 🙂

  66. I used to go to this bakery as a child that had the most delicious donuts with a strawberry glaze. I’ve never found anything quite as delicous!

  67. My favorite donuts are the custard filled ones and Powdered Sugar donuts, but those Pumpkin donuts look and sound so delicious they might become a favorite once I try them. I love anything Pumpkin flavored! Thanks for a fun giveaway and for posting such yummy recipes!

  68. KateB

    Tough decision…. I’ll go with a glazed chocolate old-fashioned. Any doughnut, though, would be fine with me!

  69. JoAnn Kirkland

    My favorite donut is a french cruller! Really though, ANY donut that I get is my favorite-there are no bad ones!!

  70. To choose a favorite donut is akin to choosing one’s favorite parent. Depending on the mood, however… I think I’ll stick with maple glazed or apple cider. Thanks for the giveaway!

  71. Andrea

    Now that I think about it, I like too many donuts 🙂 but I can always go for a good chocolate cake donut with a light glaze drizzle. Thanks!

  72. Diane M.

    Apple cider doughnuts are my favorite, but that might be because I’ve never had a pumpkin doughnut before. I think I need to try out a new recipe 🙂

  73. I have wanted one of these pans for so long! I hope I win! 🙂

    My favorite is just a plain old cider donut. Thanks for the great giveaway!

  74. Leah

    I once had a black forest doughnut from a shop in Austin, Texas. That was like ten years ago, and I STILL crave it sometimes.

  75. Mandy A.

    I love blueberry donuts! Payday is also known as Donut Day in my office, I get very excited over the blueberry donuts!

  76. BethAnn

    My favorite is a maple glazed french doughnut. Unfortunately, now my son loves them too, so I have to make sure I get more than one, or I don’t get it.

  77. Melissa

    Blueberry cake with a light glaze frosting. MMMMMMmmmmmm!!! {Thanks for the brownie covered Oreo recipe! It is my “go to” pitch in dessert now. A hit with all my friends, especially the kids. Keep up the great work!}

  81. Breanna

    I love simple chocolate cake donuts with a chocolate frosting. (Even though my son prefers his with sprinkles.)

  82. Larissa

    My fave is Boston Cream. Hubby loves glazed. Daughter likes chocolate with chocolate glaze. Son likes them all…
    This would be great! Homemade is alwasy better than storebought!

  83. Victoria Williams

    decisions, decisions! classic glazed when i can’t make up my mind, but i just love donuts in general! 🙂

  84. Mallory

    I think there is nothing better than a plain sour cream cake doughnut. I can seriously slam down the entire package if I am not careful. I love them!

  85. S.uzanne T

    pumpkin–always. Well, chocolate too—but If I had a dozen donuts to pick from I always take the pumpkin. I was wondering how these worked. Love the tutorial you did!

  86. welllll, I think pumpkin icecream glazed donuts are fixin’ to be my favorite. Yesterday I put find out who makes the donut pan on my to-do list…thanks so much for the info and chance to cross it off my list!!!

    My favorite type of donut is anything with fall flavors — pumpkin, maple, cinnamon (ok, that last one is year-round.)

  90. My all time favorite donut is a night warm, fresh out of the oven glazed donut from Krispy Kreme. Nothing can beat it! Especially when you can watch them coming down the conveyer belt and be put into a box and then handed to you. Delicious!

    However, I am planning on making these for dessert on Thanksgiving 🙂

  91. Lisa Swaim

    My favorite is any type of fresh, warm and slightly gooey donut. People should stand back, because I do love them so!

  92. Martha T

    Although I love fresh, hot greasy yeast doughnuts, my favorite is a dense sour cream. I have been looking at these doughnut recipes and trying to justify buying a pan … 🙂

  93. Mandy

    Since its fall I’m gonna say my favorite kind of donut is the spice flavored cake donuts. My local grocery store doesn’t sell them. 🙁 I hope I get this pan so I can get my pumpkin fix!

  94. our local doughnut shop has a buttermilk cake doughnut that is to die for! but let’s be honest…i’m not turning any doughnuts away 😉

  95. My favorite kind of donut is perfect for this time of year–apple cider donuts! I would love to make them using this pan! Thank you, Picky Palate and Wilton for the opportunity!

  104. Kim

    chocolate donuts with maple frosting! or apple cider donuts fresh from the fryer at the farmstand…delicious 🙂

  105. Courtney-O

    This pan is amazing! I always want to make donuts, but I always think they’re way too much work; this would totally fix that!

  106. Gina

    I ate at the Donut Planet (i think that’s what it was called) in NY and their Coconut donut is one of my favorites!

  107. christie F.

    Hmm. Hard choice to make, but I guess I would have to say that bavarian cream filled donuts are my favorite. I love cake donuts, too, though…

  108. Cortney

    Being 9 months pregnant, I currently love ALL donuts! My favorite though would have to be chocolate glazed cake donuts.

  109. Linda

    I would love a donut pan. Who knew you could make donuts without all the grease! My favorite is the cake donut with a light glaze. I think I will be trying the pumpkin very soon.

  110. emily w

  113. Kristi R

    I love Larry & Kristi doughnuts – a local doughnut shop – my favorites are maple bars and blueberry fritters (which is funny – because I don’t really like blueberries except in these).

  118. The best donut I’ve ever had is from Gordough’s here in austin- their “Flying Pig” a fried to order fluffy doughnut topped with bacon and a maple glaze!!

  119. Ashley J.

    Ahhh I think its too hard to pick just one. Donuts are my weakness. I think I would have to go with any donuut with sprinkles! 🙂

  120. Whitney

    Ah! I’ve been dying for a doughnut pan for ages now!
    I love, love, love blueberry cake donuts.
    Or, honey glazed whole wheat.
