  • 1 portion donuts glazed, filled, powdered


  • Place your donut on a microwave-safe plate.
  • (Optional) If stale, cover with a piece of damp paper towel for added moisture.
  • Microwave the donut for 10 to 20 seconds on medium-high heat.
  • Once warm, serve immediately.


Check your donut at the 10-second mark to see if it is warm to the touch, as different microwaves heat at different rates, and you don’t want to over warm your donut and dry it out.
If the donuts have been stored for a while, adding a damp paper towel helps restore softness.
