Recipe Notes

  1. Oven timings and temperature varies from one oven to another, hence adjust the timings accordingly.
  2. Glazing the donut is completely optional. In case if you are not glazing the donuts just add little more sugar to balance the sweetness.
  3. You can also glaze the donuts using dark chocolate glaze
  4. Whole wheat flour varies slightly from one brand to another. Add 1 more tablespoon of milk if the batter is very thick.
