How to Make Cake Mix Baked Donuts!

How to Make Cake Mix Baked Donuts!

What, whaaaaa?!  Making donuts at home!  Yay!  My kids are going to flip when they wake up tomorrow and find donuts for breakfast.  These cake mix donuts are so ridiculously easy to make and so funnnnnnn!!!  You can make any flavor you like - just grab the appropriate box of cake mix, and you're off to the races.  

I like to beat mine with an electric mixer just a litttttle bit longer than strictly necessary to incorporate more air into the batter - which makes them lighter and rise more (think of a nice domed top on your cupcakes).  

Our donuts are made with cake mix (duh), so they will be cakey and more dense than your typical glazed donut (think of the chocolate glazed donut at Dunkin versus the regular glazed donut at  Krispy Kreme). The springy donuts are made with a yeast based recipe, where as ours is a cake base (sorry to sound like a broken record).  

Just like with regular cake - you can absolutely freeze batches of these cake mix donuts (undecorated) to whip out for special occasions (or for watching Netflix, whatever).  Just make sure to cool them down completely first and then seal in an air tight container.  Mmmmm, just the thought of a secret donut stash is making me giddy!

  1. Hi,
    Thank you for your nice sharing. The donuts are looked very tasty and yummy. Specially for sharing the process of making donuts.

  2. This is my first time watching you. You are cute, but very unprepared. All this could have been done in half the time if everything was ready. Got boring. However, I will give it one more try on your website.
