Sugar Coated Baked Donuts make easy work of homemade baked donuts. Whip up these sweet breakfast treats using only staples from your fridge and pantry. They’ll be a hit with the whole family!


  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, melted
  • 1/2 cup golden or granulated sugar + 2 tablespoons (for coating donuts)
  • 3/4 cup milk
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Spray 2 (6-cavity) donut pans with non-stick cooking spray.
  2. In a large bowl, melt the butter and let cool slightly. Whisk in the sugar then the milk, eggs and vanilla. Stir in the flour and baking soda.
  3. Spoon the batter into a piping bag and pipe into donut cavities, filling each one about 2/3-full.
  4. Bake donuts for 12-15 minutes or until golden brown and a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Let the donuts cool in the pan for 5 minutes. Remove 6 of the donuts and place them in a plastic baggie. Add 1 tablespoon sugar, seal the bag and toss to coat. Repeat with remaining 6 donuts and 1 tablespoon sugar.
