I traveled to five stores before I found a doughnut (or donut, however you want to spell it) pan. Apparently the trend to bake your donuts instead of frying them hasn’t made it to New Hampshire yet. No luck at Wal-mart, no luck at Target, no luck at any grocery store. I finally ended up at Kitchen & Company at The Crossings where they have everything from specialty knives to miniature castle-shaped cupcake pans. So yeah, I probably should have stopped there first.
Anyway, I’m going to make as many different types of donuts as possible, starting with Funfetti donuts. Yup, strawberry frosted Funfetti donuts. Maybe next time I’ll make s’more donuts or maple and bacon topped donuts. But for now, we’ll stick with these sweet strawberry frosted Funfetti donuts.
1 stick of butter, melted
1 cup of 2% milk
1 package of Pillsbury Funfetti Cake Mix
1 container of Pillsbury Creamy Supreme Strawberry Frosting
Preheat the oven to 350 F. In a bowl, mix eggs, melted butter, and milk. Please note, if the milk is cold, it will harden the butter. It’s best to have the milk room temperature. Once combined, add the cake mix.
Pour mix into a greased donut pan. Fill only halfway. Bake for 15 minutes, or until donuts are golden brown. Remove from pan and let cool on a cooling rack.
In a microwave safe bowl, scoop half of a can of strawberry frosting. Microwave in 10 second increments, stirring between heatings, until smooth. Dip donuts into frosting, one at a time. Let cool for a minute, then do a second dipping. Top with optional sprinkles. Let cool and keep in an air-tight container. Enjoy!
These would be so great for a party! Thanks for sharing!
