  • ½ cup packed brown sugar

  2. Spoon batter into a large resealable plastic bag. Using scissors, cut off a corner; squeeze batter into prepared pan, filling each cup about two-thirds full. Smooth tops.

  3. Bake about 8 minutes or until doughnuts are nearly firm when lightly pressed. Cool in pan on a wire rack 3 minutes. Turn doughnuts out of pan onto wire rack.

Purchase a mini doughnut pan, which gives these donuts their traditional shape, at a specialty cookware shop or online. If necessary, bake doughnuts in two batches, washing pan and coating again with cooking spray before filling with the remaining batter.
