If you're looking for an easy breakfast kids will love, give these baked donuts a try!

These donuts are soft, sweet and so delicious, especially with the glaze and sprinkles. We especially love these donuts because they're baked and not fried. All you need is a donut pan and once the batter is made, they bake in about 10 minutes.

The girls and I love sprinkles, so that was our first choice for a topping. You can top these baked donuts with so many different things, Try small candy, crushed cereal, different sprinkles, chocolate and more.

Change up the color of the glaze for different occasions or even let each kid pick their own colors for the glaze. This is such a simple basic recipe that you can change to whatever you love!

Glazed Baked Donuts with Sprinkles


  • Donut:
  • 2 ⅔ cups all purpose flour
  • 1 ½ teaspoons baking powder
  • ¼ teaspoon baking soda
  • ¾ teaspoon salt
  • 4 tablespoons butter, room temperature
  • ¼ cup vegetable oil
  • ½ cup granulated sugar
  • ⅓ cup light brown sugar, packed
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • Glaze:
  • 2 cups sifted powdered sugar
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • ¼ teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ⅛ teaspoon salt


  1. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F. Prepare two donut pans with nonstick cooking spray.
  2. In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Set aside.
  3. In a mixing bowl, beat the butter, oil, granulated sugar, and brown sugar until well blended. Scrape down the sides. To the batter, add the eggs and vanilla and mix well.
  4. Add the wet mixture to the flour mixture about ⅓ at a time, alternating with the buttermilk. Beat just until blended.
  5. In batches, transfer the batter to a piping bag and pipe in circles into the prepared doughnut pans, filling them about two-thirds full.
  6. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes or until a toothpick or cake tester inserted comes out clean.
  7. Allow the doughnuts to cool in the pans for 5 minutes on a wire rack before removing them from the pans. Allow the doughnuts to cool completely prior to decorating.
  8. Repeat steps for any remaining batter.
  9. For the glaze, mix the ingredients together until completely blended. Invert the doughnuts and dip into the glaze. Remove the doughnuts from the glaze and place on a wire rack or baking sheet. Add sprinkles immediately, if desired.


Store in an airtight container for up to three days.

If you don't have buttermilk, make your own! Add one tablespoon vinegar or lemon juice to a liquid measuring cup. Add milk to the one cup line and stir. Set aside for 5 minutes before using.
