If your mixing bowl has a pouring spout, then use the bowl to fill the doughnut pans, if not; place a large heavy duty Ziploc bag into a bowl, or large glass, and pour the batter into the Ziploc bag. Make sure the bag is zipped completely, and carefully move the batter away from the bottom of the bag, and snip one corner off the bag.
