The easiest and most efficient way to fill the cups of a donut pan is by using a piping bag. No need to use a tip, just fill your bag and cut off the end. Gently squeeze the batter into the prepared pan to fill each donut cup 2/3 full.
No piping bags on hand? Gallon size ziploc bags are a great substitute. Fold over the top, fill the bag, and cut off a corner to make your own piping bag!
Donuts are best eaten on the day they are made.
To Store: Store undecorated donuts in an airtight container in the freeze for a few weeks.
