Rain, rain go away... but until then I will make Funfetti donuts. 
Yeah that's right;

Fun-Fetti-Donuts. Double frosted nonetheless. 

I'm sorry. This should in no way be on your New Years diet. But it's Funfetti, I couldn't resist. 

They are the perfect way to test your will power. Funfetti donuts- 1, Me- 0.

I must say I tried and tried, and tried, to make homemade Funfetti. It is easy enough to replicate the cake mix, but I just could not get the cake mix to convert to donut mix. So after a few failed attempts I simply bought the box mix. Sometimes you gotta leave well enough alone I guess. 



ingredients 
(adapted from Cookies and Cups)
2 3/4 cups Funfetti Cake Mix
3/4 cup buttermilk
2 eggs
2 Tablespoons melted butted
3 cups powdered sugar
1/4 cup + 1/4 teaspoon whole milk
1 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract

Donuts
Preheat oven to 425
Spray the donut pan lightly with cooking spray
Combined all ingredients in a large mixing bowl. Beat on medium speed for 30 seconds.
Transfer batter to a pipping bag or Ziploc bag with one corner cut off.
Squeeze batter into each donut mold filling 2/3 full.
Bake for 5-7 minutes until donuts are slightly brown and spring back when touched.
Let donuts cool then remove and place on cooling rack.

Glaze
In medium saucepan combine 2 cups powdered sugar, 1 teaspoon vanilla extract, 1/4 cup of milk. Whisk over low heat until glaze is smooth. Coat donuts one at a time. I dropped the donut in the pot then used a spoon to cover the top with the glaze. After it was fully coated I used tongs to gently remove and place back on cooling rack. Repeat for remaining donuts.
Let glaze cool and harden for 15 minutes.

Frosting
After glaze is cool mix together 1 cup of powdered sugar, 1 tablespoon of milk, 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract. Whisk in a mixing bowl until smooth. If the frosting seems to thick slowly add a little more milk.
Frost the top of each donut and then sprinkle generously with sprinkles.

You're waistline will be cursing me later!




Enjoy!

  5. these are so pretty! I love sprinkles and I love making donuts. I've never used a boxed mix for donuts, most of my donut recipes are all based on 1 c of flour and just a few other things but this is interesting and a way to use up half a box of cakemix (like after making my pink cookies...thanks for saying hi today, too!)
