Frequently Asked Questions

Is it possible to baked the donuts?
Yes, but it’s trickier to get the best result. Here’s what you should do: preheat the oven to 400 °F (200 °C), line up a sheet pan with parchment paper and spray oil evenly. Place the dough pieces on the parchment paper and spray them generously. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes, until the donuts are golden and fully cooked.
