  1. These donuts look awesome! And, I love the donut baking pan! Didn’t know they even made these. I just always thought you had to fry donuts. Now I might be more inclined to make homemade donuts because I really didn’t want the hassle of frying them. Thanks for sharing!

    Check your recipe-you have the incorrect ingredient listed under the peanut butter glaze. The directions themselves say to us PB chips.

    This looks incredibly yummy! Thanks for sharing!
