Red Velvet Cake Donuts
Red Velvet dry cake mix
Use a Tub of Cream Cheese Frosting or
Red Velvet Donuts
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray a donut pan &/or mini muffin pan with cooking spray, set aside.
In a medium bowl, add dry cake mix, buttermilk, canola oil, & eggs and stir together until mixed well.
Spoon mixture into a piping bag or a zippered plastic bag with the corner cut off.
Pipe into greased donut pan and fill the donut or mini muffin cups approximately ⅔ full.
Bake for approximately 11-14 minutes, until a toothpick inserted comes out clean and donuts and holes are set in the center.
Let cool in the pan for a few minutes, then run a knife around the edges of each donut to pop out of pan.
Place on a cooling rack to cool.
If using already prepared frosting from the tub
If frosting needs softened, heat frosting in microwave for 10-15 seconds (feel free to add a little milk or water for different consistencies).
If you are making the frosting
Using a mixer, in a large bowl, beat together the butter and cream cheese.
With the mixer on low speed, add the powdered sugar a cup at a time until smooth and creamy. Beat in the vanilla extract.
Using a spoon, dollop frosting on donuts, cover with sprinkles, icing drizzles, or chocolate chips.
Makes 12 donuts or 6 donuts & 20 to 24 “donut holes”
