How to make donuts with cake mix
I wanted to make something fast and simple, and this is about as simple as it gets. All you need is a boxed cake mix (in this instance, red velvet), buttermilk, an egg, and some oil.
There’s no need to measure out flour, sugar, cocoa powder, salt, or anything else.
There’s no need to worry with red food coloring.
The result is fluffy red velvet donuts poised for a somewhat sweet, sour cream cheese icing. And, of course, copious amounts of sprinkles.
Donuts with or without a hole
Here’s the deal with me and doughnuts. I prefer not to have a hole in the middle of anything that will be covered with frosting, icing, or glaze.
But I don’t want it filled with anything because the entire reason I don’t like the hole is because things fall out and it becomes dirty, and if it’s filled with anything, I’m sure I’ll be wearing it.
I’m aware of it. Total and complete blasphemy.
As a result of my personal inclination, I overfill my doughnut pan (aff link) with batter, causing it to puff up and cover up the hole in the middle.
If you’re still staring at me through your computer, consider this: it means you have more room for icing and sprinkles.
Are red velvet donuts healthy?
Are they good for you? Oh my God.
Do I recommend giving them to your kids, family, and friends on a frequent basis? Deargodpleasedontdothat.
So do I believe you should indulge in a delicious treat because you live in a free nation and are celebrating your independence? Oh my god, yes.
How many calories are in a red velvet donuts?
I’m warning you because you requested this information.
One of these doughnuts has around 320 calories.
I’ve got an idea for a smores doughnut similar to these, but with chocolate cake mix and marshmallow icing (with crushed graham crackers instead of sprinkles) that will most likely happen soon since I have no self control.
Guaranteed, my dear buddy Tegan will be the first to bookmark that recipe and make them while condemning me for fuelling her smores obsession.
waves Hello, Tegan!
Oh, and if somebody ever tells you that you’re using too many sprinkles, let them go because you don’t need that type of negativity in your life.

Fill a pastry bag (or a plastic bag with a hole made in the corner) halfway with batter, then pipe it onto the prepared pan. Fill each donut cavity 2 times if you want a hole in the middle.
- 10 minutes in the oven. Let to cool in the pan for a few minutes before removing to wire racks to cool fully.
Cream Cheese Frosting

With a hand mixer, add cream cheese, powdered sugar, and milk in a medium mixing basin and beat until thoroughly blended.
