ISO Info on Doughnut Pan

I have been seeing a lot of recipes for doughnuts the last few days and my interest is piqued. Does anyone have a doughnut pan and do they make good doughnuts?

I was looking at the Wilton pan.

I'm looking for something that will help these doughnut cravings I have been having. Krispy Kreme is an hour away so I am looking to make something like that eventually.

Thanks for your help!

I'm pretty sure those won't turn out like Krispy Kreme doughnuts. They are deep fried.

My mum used to crack open a tube of Pillsbury biscuits; cut a hole in the middle; deep fry both the doughnut shaped bits and the holes; and sprinkle some confectioners sugar. Those were pretty good. Well, I was a kid. I don't know what I would think of them now.

I don't have any experience with making donuts in this manner, but you might want to call and speak to a "resident baker" at King Arthur Flour and see what they have to say about making them like that.

I've called them any number of times and received good information on a variety of baking subjects.

I found a recipe that is a copy cat where they are baked. It's rated pretty high too. I hate frying doughnuts. It is a bit of a smelly job. My mom used to make doughnuts all the time when I was growing up and they were so delicious. I figured since the pan is only 10 bucks, it would be worth a shot. If not, I could just fry them.

I had no idea you could call them! Thanks so much for the tip!

Isn't an non-fried Krispy Kreme doughnut, just a roll with glaze on it?

I think it would be more of a cake with glaze on it, but who's keeping track.

But aren't most Krispy Irene doughnuts the yeast raised variety? They have a few that they call "cake" donuts, but they more resemble little Debbie dunkin' sticks, than a cake donut.

This is the recipe I have been looking at. They look pretty good. I like cake doughnuts and am looking for something baked instead of fried. It seems like these would be right up my alley. I just need to get a pan.

I've always thought of "baked" donuts as blasphemy, But those look delicious, I may pick up a pan just to try them out!

I grew up on homemade cake donuts, never was much into yeast donuts (except filled) but yeast donuts seem to be the most popular here.
