Classic or glazed, dipped in chocolate, or dunked in coffee, they’re the breakfast treat that you can have any time of day! And you don’t have to hit the donut shop to get them! You can simply make them at home!

You don’t need a deep fryer or a complicated recipe to make your favorite donuts at home. In fact, they are really simple and the kids will love helping out.

You can fry them. You can bake them. You can make giant donuts or mini donuts. The possibilities are literally endless.

Donut Recipes You Can Make at Home

Before you jump into making donuts at home, you need a few things. But don’t worry.

You don’t need any special kitchen equipment to make donuts at home so there’s no excuse not to make them right now!

Donut Pan: If you are making baked or cake donuts, you are going to need a donut pan!

Fry Thermometer: If you are frying your donuts, you should really use a fry thermometer. If your oil is too hot, then you will burn the outside of the donut and raw donut on the inside.

Donut Hole Pan: This donut hole pan makes individual mini sized doughnut holes.

Ziploc Bag: Ziploc Bags make it easy to pipe the donut batter into your donut pan. You don’t need fancy piping bags!
