Funfetti Baked Donuts

What is it about donuts?  I love them.  They are not diet friendly.  Is that why I love them?
 
Anything can be a donut.  When I was a kid, my dad used to use the canned biscuits and pat them out, put a hole in them, and deep fry them, then we would dip them in cinnamon sugar.  My have to try that next. 
 
But for today it is baked.  I found a Wilton donut baking pan for $5.00 the other day and couldn't resist.
 
 Ready to bake -- recipes below.
 Out of the oven, they look a little brown, but trust me they are wonderful.
 Ready for cinnamon sugar or glaze.  I went glaze.
 Very lightly glazed.
 Absolutely would do these again.  Yum.
Funfetti baked donuts this would also work in any of Wilton's pans.  Including the Cake Pop pans, would make donut holes.  Mini muffin tins would work too.  Be creative.

Funfetti Donuts:
2 3/4 cup Funfetti Mix.
3/4 cup Buttermilk - shake well first -- regular milk will work too.
2 Eggs
2 Tbsp melted butter/margarine.
Mix, then put in ziplock back and cut a hole at bottom and pipe into pan.
Bake at 425 for about 7-9 minutes.
Cool for a few minutes then pop out.
With any pan -- use a cooking spray to spray the pan first.
Makes 12 donuts.
I cut the recipe in half and made 6 donuts.

Glaze:
2 Cups powdered sugar
1/4 cup milk.
Dash or 1 Tbsp vanilla extract -- or orange extract -- carmel -- pumpkin -- be creative.
(I used the Torani Sugar Free Vanilla).
Put in pan - I used my wok (it is a coated nonstick pan) and mix with a whisk over medium to low heat until all the bumps are out. 
Then lightly coat donuts.  I did one on front, and one on back then set on wax paper.
Let sit for a few minutes and enjoy.
