Want to make fresh doughnuts without making dough? You won’t even need to bother with the deep fryer if you use Betty Crocker cake mix to make baked cake doughnuts.

Ingredients

For the doughnuts:

  • 2 3/4 Cups Betty Crocker yellow cake mix
  • 3/4 Cups buttermilk or whole milk
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 Tablespoons butter, melted

For the glaze:

  • 1/4 Cup whole milk
  • 2 Cups powdered sugar

Directions

For the doughnuts:

Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F. Spray a doughnut baking pan with non-stick cooking spray. In a medium mixing bowl, beat all of the ingredients on medium speed for 30 seconds. Then, transfer the batter to a piping bag. Pipe the batter into the doughnut molds until almost completely full.

Bake for about 8 minutes until the doughnuts are lightly browned. Allow to cool for 3 to 5 minutes before removing from the pan.

For the glaze:

In a medium bowl, whisk all of the ingredients together until smooth.

Then, dip your doughnuts into the glaze, lightly tapping as you pull the doughnuts out of the glaze.
