I really love baking doughnuts because I can easily avoid some calories and fat. This is a great make ahead recipe. You can get the dough mixed up the night before and let it rise overnight in the refrigerator.
The baked yeast doughnuts make from ingredients you probably already have. Using yeast dough these little treat involve no deep frying but still taste delicious.
Make them more exciting and fun with variable glazes/toppings, such as chocolate, nuts and sprinkles, vanilla, caramel or maple. They are such a delight for the whole family!
