I felt like making some doughnuts in my doughnut pan and I had a box of funfetti cake mix open from when I made the awesome Cake Batter Pudding. And I knew that I couldn’t possibly have been the first person to come up with this idea, so I did a little bit of Googling! Stephanie Cooks had a pretty good recipe that look super simple. So I figured I’d give it a try.
[Adapted from Stephanie Cooks ~ I made a few changes]
1 cup all purpose flour
2/3 cup yellow cake mix
1/4 cup sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup milk
2 eggs, beaten
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
2 tablespoons rainbow sprinkles
- non-stick cooking spray
Now in the original recipe they used some frosting in a can to put on top of the doughnuts. I would’ve done this, but I don’t really keep frosting in a can in the house. I usually prefer to make my own buttercream. But for these doughnuts I wanted to go with just a glaze-like topping.
For the the vanilla glaze I just used 1/2 cup powdered sugar + 1 teaspoon vanilla + 2 tablespoons milk.
For the chocolate glaze I used 1/2 cup powdered sugar + 1 tablespoon of cocoa + dash of vanilla + 2 tablespoons milk.
Doesn’t that look amazing?
