  • Donut pan (metal)
  • Donut pan (silicone)



  • ¼ cup granulated sugar
  • 3 tablespoons brown sugar
  • ¼ cup vegetable oil
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 ⅓ cup all purpose flour regular or gluten-free measure-for-measure flour blend
  • ½ cup milk
  • ½ cup raspberries rinsed and dabbed dry with paper towels. Halved, quartered or chopped

For the glaze:

  • 1 cup confectioners’ (powdered) sugar
  • 2 tablespoon heavy cream
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice


Baked Donuts

  • Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Lightly grease a donut pan (metal or silicone) and set aside.
  • In a bowl whisk together the sugar, brown sugar and vegetable oil.
  • Add the egg and whisk to combine along with the baking powder.
  • Add half the flour and stir in with a spatula. Pour the milk and mix it in.
  • Add the remaining flour and stir just until it is mixed in. Do not overmix.
  • Add the raspberries and carefully fold them in.
  • Fill the donut pan cavities 2/3-3/4 full. Either spoon in the batter or (recommended) add the batter to a disposable piping bag or gallon plastic bag, cut off one corner and ‘pipe’ it into the donut pan cavities.
  • Bake for 10 minutes or until golden brown and done. Remove from the oven and let the donuts cool completely before removing from the pan. Turn them out onto a wire cooling rack to finish cooling.

Adding the Glaze

  • While the cake donuts are cooling, prepare the glaze. Whisk the glaze ingredients together until fully combined and shiny.
  • Deep each donut in the glaze twisting to take out. Let them dry before serving.



Freeze dried raspberries were chopped to decorate the donuts shown in the photos.
