Home baked doughnuts

Home baked doughnuts

Traditionally, doughnuts are deep fried, but there's no harm in baking them, right? As I am a firm believer of "tradition says be different". I came across a baked doughnuts recipe on the internet, made some changes & baked them at home. Some people use buttermilk instead of milk. Feel free to substitute milk from my recipe with buttermilk. My 3½ y.o son and K are big fans of eating the doughnuts (also spelled as donuts). Since these are baked one's, these taste similar to a cake. A perfect snack for kiddos lunch box.
