They are light, luscious and easy! When my friend Mani Niall owned Mani's Bakery in Los Angeles, a movie company came to him to develop a healthful doughnut to use as a prop in a Danny DeVito movie (Danny is a very health conscious eater and didn't want to eat junk, even in the name of art). Mani's solution, a baked doughnut, took LA by storm. These are a little bit different from his, as Mani cooks with fruit juices instead of sugar, but mine are just as good. You'll need mini-fluted tube pans for these.

They are soft baked donuts and not greasy at all as those are baked healthy ones.
I just wanted to make a quick after snack for kids so I melt left over dark chocolate as glaze.
They enjoyed the donuts today."
Orange Piggy, Premium Member, Says: "I made baked donuts this afternoon. They were great. I glazed them with apple glaze but unglazed donuts (plain or just dusted with powdered sugar) were also good! I I don't have bundlette pans so I baked them in my baked donut pans. The batter filled 12 donuts perfectly."
