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