This is really great for making cake donuts.
So, the nitty gritty of the pans themselves:
The pans work perfectly and I didn't have to season it like another reviewer mentioned, just washed it before using and made a batch of donuts. They are sturdy and heat evenly, the nonstick surface allows the donuts to pop out in 1 piece perfectly. I bought these and the Norpro 3980 12-Count Nonstick Mini Donut Pan, the mini donuts turn out rounder than the larger ones, but both were loved by my daughter.
Helpful hint: After they are baked and cooled slightly, with freshly washed hands rotate the donuts in the well about a quarter turn and the donuts will release and fall out perfectly when flipped over.
This pan comes with two basic recipes: Chocolate Cake Donuts and Cake Donuts. You can adapt the recipes to suit your needs. One thing about the recipes is that the yield for the cake doughnuts is approximately 36 mini doughnuts so if you only have one pan that is going to take you three times longer to bake them. The chocolate cake doughnuts yeild 24 so you still might want two pans.
To make perfect doughnuts I put the batter in a gallon-sized plastic bag and cut off the bottom tip as directed in the recipe book. It worked fairly well and the doughnuts had a perfect shape once cooked.
I'd suggest you buy at least two pans because most of the recipes I've found make 2 dozen doughnuts. I've looked for additional recipes here at amazon but have only found a few doughnut books. If you know of any others please leave me a note in the comments section. :) Thank you!

P.S. I tried the vanilla cake doughnut recipe (except I only made half - 18 doughnuts) that comes with these pans and it worked great except use half the salt it calls for. The doughnuts stuck a little while still warm but come out of the pan much better when slightly cooled. The only problem is they don't give you a recipe for the frosting.Read more ›
I would buy two if I were buying again though, because who only makes 12 mini donuts at a time?

Good. Definitely do get donut seams which isn't necessarily a bad thing... Be careful not to overfill and get muffins :) That goes for every donut pan though. Read morePublished 2 months ago by Kristen
