Can you bake donuts?
Yes, This is the easiest way to make them at home. They end up having more of a cake feel to them vs fried donuts.
What can I use if I don't have a donut pan?
Grab a cupcake or muffin tin and some tin foil! Use a 4×4 inch square of foil and bend it around your finger and place it in the middle to make your donut hole.

You should, I’m not sure on the cooking times just used the ‘toothpick trick’ and insert a toothpick in the center to check done-ness
