  4. Pour wet ingredients over dry ingredients and stir using a rubber spatula just until moist. Do not overmix.
  5. Scoop about one tablespoon of batter evenly into donut pan, about 3/4 full. Bake for 14 minutes, or until donuts are slightly browned and spring back when touched. Let cool for 10 minutes.

  7. Glaze: In the bowl, beat Heritage Vanilla Panna Cotta and milk until combined into an glaze consistency. If the glaze is too thick, add more milk as needed. Pour into a piping bag and pipe on top of donuts in a zig zag motion. Enjoy!
