Confetti Cake Mix Donuts

It’s time to celebrate National Coffee Month! With the kids going back to school this week and an increased workload in my everyday life, coffee is kind of my savior. Between a hot cup of coffee in the morning and an iced brew in the afternoon, I keep my coffee maker busy. Here’s how to turn your home into a coffee shop every morning!

Need a perfect pairing for your cup of coffee? Try these simple cake mix confetti donuts. Using your favorite cake mix flavor, sprinkles, and a donut pan, you can bake a batch of donuts in twenty minutes or less. To get started, preheat the oven to 350 degrees and prepare your donut pan with non-stick cooking spray. Combine the cake mix with water, oil, and egg according to package instructions. Don’t forget to add the sprinkles!

This is when the freezer bag is important. Scoop the batter into the gallon freezer bag. Seal the bag and snip one corner with the kitchen scissors. Gently squeeze the batter into the donut wells, filling each about 3/4 full.

Once your donuts are baked, frost away! This vanilla frosting is ready for sprinkles! Once they have cooled, heat the frosting in the microwave for about 10-15 seconds. You want it soft but not completely melted. Generously frost each donut and then decorate with sprinkles.
