Traditionally donuts are usually made by deep-frying them and this process is still going on in many parts of the world.

To make donuts at home all you need to do is to pick the right donut pan that is an appropriate size to bake the donuts making a healthy decision which tastes almost the same as deep-fried donuts. There are many options of donut pans in the market and in our article, we would like to help you pick the right size for you and your family.

 Choose the right donut pan:

If you wish to enjoy fresh, warm, soft, healthy yet delicious donuts then try making them at home in your oven. Choosing the right cookware is very essential for making desserts. As deep fryers are expensive buying a good donut pan and baking is selectively one of the best options rather than paying a lot of money to eat greasy oily donuts. Donut pans are found either in silicone or metal form. We recommend you to buy a non-stick pan which is the best way to bake donuts. They don’t need a lot of oil and the donuts cook more evenly and don’t stick to the pan. Non-stick pans are usually durable and long-lasting, they are also easy to clean and are dishwasher friendly. However, it is recommended you to hand wash them for increasing their longevity. Silicon pans, on the other hand, are great they are flexible and you can easily pop the donuts from them after they are baked, however, you will have to be careful of the batter being spilled before placing in the oven. These pans come in all sizes at the stores whether you need to make a large batch or few minis for brunch.

The most commonly used pans come in 6-cavity non-stick donut pans, you can also try the 12-cavity medium-sized pan. If you are making mini donuts for kids then you should opt for 12-cavity non-stick pan. Most donut pans are oven-friendly; however, you should read the labels also read out the temperature the pans can bear. These pans are affordable and their cost range from $10 to $20 depending upon the brand and quality of metal used.


If you are choosing a healthy option then bake the donuts at home than fry. They are uncompromisingly delicious and healthy for you and your family.
