  4. Cook for 10-12 minutes. Take them out of the oven and let them cool for 5-7 minutes.
  5. Place 1 Tbsp sugar free frosting in a microwaveable bowl for 15 seconds to melt the frosting and then spread evenly on top of donuts.

Note:

(I made a batch with cold water and one with warm or hot water and I found that the batter with the warm or hot water had a smooth texture when I poured them into a lightly greased donut pan.)
