There’s just something about donuts that everyone loves. Up until recently, I assumed everyone had a donut at least once in their life.

Come to find out that some folks have never had a donut before and described them as “deep-fried bread”. I guess they never heard of Baked Donuts with Chocolate Glaze!

Sure they might not be as good as those from Krispy Kreme or Dunkin’ Donuts or Winchell’s, but they are so easy to make you can have donuts whenever you want!

This is not the first time I’ve made donuts in the comfort of my own home. I’ve made The Salvation Army Donuts, which is a classic recipe for a great tasting donut. If you’ve never had baked donuts, you need to know that they do not have the same consistency as donuts that are deep-fried.

  1. Preheat over to 350°F. Coat a donut pan with non-stick spray. Set aside.
  2. In a small bowl, sprinkle the yeast over the warm water and set aside.
  3. Sift together flour, sugar, baking powder, nutmeg, and salt In a medium mixing bowl.
