These stuck to the donut pan even though I greased them well. Fell to pieces getting them out. The pieces have a nice flavor.

Mine fell apart and stuck to the pan too. I made sure to grease well. Is there some sort of trick to it? The pieces were good but the family would enjoy them as a donut and not crumbs. Please help! Thank you.

Would this recipe work in a muffin top pan or a regular muffin pan? I really don’t want to buy anymore bakeware but this looks so ridiculously yummy I simply MUST try it!
