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.
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.

Voila!  Easy, yummy and did I mention DOUBLE glazed?

Now back to the pan.
You need one of these in your life.
It even came with recipes…here’s the one I adapted…

Your waist might regret it, but your tummy will be happy 🙂

Double Glazed Funfetti Donuts


Ingredients:

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

Hi! I’m Shelly and I’m an addict. Of the buttercream sort. I started this site a few years ago as a way to justify my sugary, buttery obsession with desserts. It has worked out well for me so far, because as it turns out you guys all love sugary, buttery desserts too! It feels good to know you're not alone, doesn’t it?

    Yum! I didn't realize Wilton did a donut pan too – thought I had to order from somewhere else.

    I bet working with Wilton was great – my very first job was in their retail store! (many, many moons ago:)

    Thanks for the weight, I mean recipe!!

  2. Rosie @ Sweetapolita

    I just love these so much! I just know my little girlies would have so much fun making these and, of course, eating them. Really so fun!

  3. bridget {bake at 350}

    Well, I didn't think I ever needed a donut pan….until NOW. Oh my goodness.

    Pinned, stumbled, tweeted…and whatever else….these are fabulous, Shelly.

    for once i am glad i DIDN'T get picked to attend a PR trip . . . because BFFs or not, that pan right there would be my undoing . . . and honey, i don't really have that far to go . . . no siree Bob, not far a'tall . . .

  5. elizabeth

    I just got a mini donut pan! We tried the recipe that came with it (not Wilton, don't worry) and it was horrid. Now I can't wait to try this one because seriously, can anything Funfetti be bad???

  6. Les rêves d'une boulangère (Brittany)

    10 minutes? That's incredible! I never thought donuts would be a "common bake" in my house but looks like that's about to change. I can't believe there's no messy frying etc. These look just delicious. I am ignoring your statement about their potential to make me gain weight haha – I don't care – I have to have one of these pans!

  7. Leah Rubin

    Diet, hell! I'm getting a pan tomorrow, and when my grandson (4 1/2) is here in a couple of weeks, we're makin' your donuts! We gotta splurge now and then! Love your stuff!

  8. Tami B.

    Well, I guess I'm off on a quest to buy this pan now.
    Golly gee, thanks for undermining my attempt to start eating healthier. (It easier if I can blame it on somebody else.)

  9. Jenn @ BentoForKidlet

    It's very good that I do not own one of those pans. I may have to ban anyone from ever buying me one…..those look so delicious!

  10. Kepanie

    OMGosh; you're so evil to make this classic treat so accessible and easy for us to make! They came out so awesome!

  11. Joanne

    You know, I've been searching long and hard for a recipe to make for father's day dessert. And now here you are getting it right in one shot!

  12. Karly

    Dude. Are you kidding me right now? Did you seriously put a box of
    Funfetti cake mix in that donut pan?

    My life will never be the same.

    I'm not sure if I should thank you or punch you?

  13. Pink Little Cake

    Ohhhh I need this pan in my life before my baby is born so I can get fater now. I am not a donut eater, but I will eat from this cake mix recipe.

    You make me laugh everytime! 🙂

    I've been searching for a donut pan for MONTHS now with no luck, not even my favorite never let me down thrift store didn't turn up a donut pan….until yesterday! I poked into favorite thrift store, trying to avoid the toy isle with my kids and found not only a donut pan, but a mini donut pan to go with it for $1.99 each. My hubby came home for lunch and I literally danced over to him with my exciting find. He started to shake his head and laugh (and mmy dance really wasn't laugh worthy) he had special ordered me donut pans from the specialty cooking shop due to arrive this week 🙂 DONUTS FOR EVERYONE!!! 🙂 I did make some chocolate ones yesterday and I have to agree that donuts in 10 minutes is super high alert dangerous! I have a cherry cake mix in the cupboard, I'm making these for dinner…(just had a baby so the jeans are still stretchy at the top, no belt loops here!!) 🙂

  16. Trish - Sweetology101

    for the love of all that is sugary lady, this is going to be my death. Seriously though..I have one of those plug in donut makers and it works "pretty good" but this…THIS! yes I need this…I may be able to quit the day gig as a PA and set up a stand on the corner. CHA CHING…

  17. The Sneaky Mommy

    Don't be creeped out by the very pregnant lady banging on your door at midnight begging for a donut…you started this craving! Those look delicious and now I'm adding a donut pan to my baby registry. It's practical, right?

  18. BreAna @ Sugar and Spice and All Things Iced

    I have been thinking about buying a donut pan…I think you have convinced me! 🙂

  19. Michelle

    I want to call you some bad names for posting this where I could see it…But I won't be able to because my mouth will be full 😀

  20. Jocelyn

    I heart donuts and double glazed ones I heart even more!!! It has been years since I have been to the wilton tent sale:-( A friend and I used to go ever year…loved all the goodies I used to find!!!

  21. Christina

    I had wondered if I could just use a cake mix to make donuts…I got the pan months ago but other then washing it and starring at it I haven't made a thing with it!
    I am so going to the store and picking up a cake mix, this will be soooo tasty!!! My co-workers will love these!
    Thanks for putting it up!!!
