Glazed Baked Red Velvet Donuts

These were absolutely incredible!! And really easy because they start with a cake mix that you just doctor up a bit and then dip into the glaze. The cake was super moist and would make great cupcakes too and the glaze added a great sweetness but not too rich. Also, if you don’t have a donut pan, you can make these in muffin tins.

Recipe Makes 12 donuts or 6 donuts & 20 to 24 “donut holes”


For the Donuts:

  • 2 2/3 cup Red Velvet dry cake mix*
  • 2/3 cup buttermilk**
  • 2 tbsp. canola oil
  • 2 eggs

For the Glaze:

  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • 2 cups confectioner’s sugar

For the Donuts:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray a donut pan &/or mini muffin pan with cooking spray, set aside.
  2. In a medium bowl, add the dry cake mix, buttermilk, canola oil, & eggs. Stir together with a spatula until fully incorporated. Scoop the batter into your prepared pans. Fill the donut or mini muffin cups approximately 1/2 to 2/3 full.
  3. Bake for approximately 10 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 or donut hole and pop out of the pan. Place on a cooling rack to cool slightly.

For the Glaze:

  1. While the donuts bake, in a small saucepan add milk & vanilla and stir together. Heat over low heat until warm.
  2. This only takes a minute or so.
  3. Add in the confectioner’s sugar and stir until fully incorporated and smooth.
  4. Remove from heat and set pan over a bowl of warm water to keep the glaze dippable.
