This is the best day ever.
Why, you ask? Because I’m getting ready to dunk one of these amazing cake mix doughnuts into my coffee. Yum!
I always thought doughnuts would be one heckuva pastry to make at home. How do you get the batter just right, not to mention the frosting and filling, too?
Making doughnuts at home never crossed my mind until I found this easy doughnut recipe. It actually uses cake mix, which is my kind of baking shortcut! And the delicious glaze on top is so simple — all you need is powdered sugar and water to drizzle over the top. (But I had to add some sprinkles for good measure, y’know?)
I like to dunk my doughnuts in coffee for an extra kick of flavor. There’s just something about that coffee + doughnut combo that’s irresistible. What about you, how do you like your doughnuts?
Are you ready to make your very own delicious doughnuts? I do recommend using a doughnut baking sheet, and if you don’t yet have one in your bakeware collection, this doughnut pan from Walmart is only $7.46!
