Double Glazed Funfetti Donuts

I am really sorry to do this to you.

Because, you know, we’re like friends.
I mean, at least I think of you as my friends…
BUT I imagine if we were REALLY friends I wouldn’t do to you what I am about to do.
I am going to give you, in advance, a weight problem.
If you have never struggled with your weight, God bless ya, but that is about to change.
There are no exercises to help you here.
No amount of running.
No solution to what is going to unfold in your life in the next minute.
It’s really mean, I suppose.
But since we are friends, I must share.
Because that’s what friends do.
We share.
There’s no turning back.
I am going to share with you a recipe for donuts.
In your kitchen.
With no frying involved.
Only a remarkable pan and some cake mix.
It’s really happening, folks.
Donut pan
Last week I attended a really great Blogger Workshop hosted my the incredible people at Wilton.
We frosted, we fondanted, we decorated, we toured…
and we shopped.
The Wilton tent sale is amazing…rows and rows of products all marked down 50%.
That is where I gained possession of the donut pan.
I am scared of its power.
 
A food that would once be deemed “highly unlikely” to be procured from my kitchen is now going to be a staple.
I might as well get a conveyer belt and a sign that says “Hot Donuts Now”.
You’d come over, right?
Well, now you won’t have to.
You can have hot donuts in 10 minutes.
I wish I were lying.
 Lord help the holes on my belt…they are about to be tested.
 
Don’t say you weren’t warned, friend.

Get your cake mix ready..

I used a ziplock for easy filling…

Cut of the corner of the ziplock and squeeze batter into each donut mold, filling 2/3 full.

Bake for 7-9 minutes until the tops are slightly browned and spring back when touched.

Let donuts cool in pan for 5 minutes and then turn pan upside down to remove.

Then glaze them up!

 I just dropped each donut into the saucepan and quickly coated, transferring onto a cooling rack with parchment or a silicon mat under to catch the glaze drippings.

Then frost them again.  I know.

Stir both ingredients together until smooth.

Spread approx 1 tsp of frosting on top of each donut and immediately coat with sprinkles.

Ingredients

Scale

Donuts

  • 2 3/4 cups Funfetti Cake Mix
  • 3/4 cup buttermilk
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 Tbsp melted butter

Glaze

  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 2 cups powdered sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla

White Frosting

  • 1 cup of powdered sugar
  • 1 tbsp milk
  • *sprinkles if desired

Instructions

Donuts

  1. Preheat oven to 425°
  2. Spray the donut pan lightly with cooking spray.
  3. In mixing bowl beat all ingredients on medium speed for 30 seconds.
  4. Transfer batter in a ziplock bag.
  5. Cut of the corner of the ziplock and squeeze batter into each donut mold, filling 2/3 full.
  6. Bake for 7-9 minutes until the tops are slightly browned and spring back when touched.

Glaze

  1. hi Shelly, I was wondering if i could roll and cut this recipe. Ii don’t have a donut pan, but did buy a donut cutter. Thanks for having such an awesome website and sharing all these great recipes!

  2. This MGHT work using tin foil balled up and sprayed generously with that baker’s joy spray + flour stuff??? I have a mini donut maker (yard sale find- $0.50!!!) that I may try this out in.

  3. JessicaWilson

    Can these be made with a chocolate cake mix also?? I have the mini dounut pan I found it a few years back and have never used it and I think I’ll pull it out tomorrow. Lol

    1. I’ve never tried that, but I imagine it would work fine! You can also make your own buttermilk mixing in one tablespoon of white vinegar into 1 cup of milk.
