  2. Combine first ten ingredients in a large bowl and mix until smooth (everything except for ** DRIZZLE ** topping).
  3. Let batter sit for 3-5 minutes to thicken slightly. Pour into prepared pan and bake for 18-25 minutes (time will vary depending on your use of pan. Large donuts will take 25 minutes, smaller ones will take anywhere from 15-2Edges will come slightly away from pan once cooked through. Poke centers with a toothpick to be sure.
  4. Remove from oven and let cool slightly.
  5. Prepare tres leches topping by combining evaporated milk, condensed milk, and coconut milk in a small bowl.
  6. Stir until incorporated. Drizzle on donuts and serve with fruit of choice.
