    What can you use instead of donut pans?

    • Swans Down says:

      Hi Shirley, You can use muffin tins in place of donut pans. Prepare the pan as instructed. To make the donut hole you can tightly wad a 1″ ball of parchment paper, flatten it on one side and place it in the center of the muffin tin. Then pipe fill the tins as you would a donut pan.

  • Lori Zierden says:

    I don’t have doughnut pans and can’t afford them at the moment. Is there any other pans you could substitute? I mainly have muffin tins, would they work?

    • Swans Down says:

      Lori, Yes you can use muffin tins. Prepare the pan as instructed. To make the donut hole you can tightly wad a 1″ ball of parchment paper, flatten it on one side and place it in the center of the muffin tin. Then pipe fill the tins as you would a donut pan.
