A couple weeks ago I made red velvet scones using boxed cake mix. I had some left over and knew I would use it for Valentine’s Day baked donuts- yum. They were really really easy, and delicious.
For the donuts themselves, I mixed together about 1 1/4 cup cake mix, 1 egg, 1/8 cup oil, and 1/2 cup water. I poured the mix into a greased donut pan and baked them in the oven, preheated to 350 degrees for about 8 minutes or so. Once a toothpick came out clean, I took them out and let them cool while I mixed up the glaze. The glaze recipe I followed was simple- I just mixed up some powdered sugar, milk, and vanilla extract. When the donuts were cool, I dunked the tops into the glaze, added some sprinkles for fun, and called it good.
To round out our Valentine’s menu, we made bacon, and cut up some strawberries. I love simple meals such as this:) Oh, and an iced coffee, naturally.
