Pina Colada Baked Doughnuts

Before You Start

You will be using one 20-ounce can of crushed pineapple. Strain the pineapple, but reserve the juice (Image 1). You'll need to squeeze out as much of the remaining juice as possible using a cheesecloth or clean lint-free tea towel. There should be some left over to use for the glaze. Do not overmix; most steps require only enough mixing to combine.
