I made these a couple weeks ago. They turned out great. Just found the recipe again and now have a hard copy. I baked them.

Hello everyone, Thanks for your comments and suggestions. Yes, the "pancake mix" does refer to a baking mix like Bisquick.

Baking mix or pancake mix, one in the same as in bisquick.

I agree with "fransett" that the pictured donuts must be fried. I do wish someone that has tried the "baked method" will comment as to what they think of the results. I would like to bypass the frying & enjoy a bit healthier donut. Thanks.

If you read the entire recipe, the butter is to dip them in before dipping in sugar which is also WHY they look so nice and shiny as though they were fried rather than baked! The 'pancake mix' reference is because packaged pre-made baking mixes are often used to make pancakes, waffles, and biscuts! Think B******K brand!

Is the 1/4 c. melted butter and 1/2 c. sugar added to the batter or is it for dipping the donuts ?

This recipe is very confusing to me. You have "pancake" mix in parenthesis. Then you have "baking mix" outside of the parentheses. Then in the instructions you say #1 to combine baking mix and then #3 to add baking mix. Okay what is it "Pancake Mix" or "Baking Mix" or both? Is it two (2) cups of "Pancake Mix" (eg. Hungry Jack) or two (2) cups of "Baking Mix" (eg. Bisquick) or one (1) cup of each. Did someone leave something out???

These doughnuts don't look baked to me. I've found that The only time you get that coloring is if you deep fry them. Has anyone tried them yet? I would like to know the results.

Can't wait to try these! As a matter of fact, I think I'll make them this weekend.
