Course: Breakfast
Cuisine: American
Servings: 24 donuts
Author: Dorothy Kern
Cost: $6


  • For the Donuts
  • 2 ¾ cups Classic Yellow Cake Mix
  • ¼ cup rainbow sprinkles
  • ¾ cup buttermilk or mix 2 teaspoons white vinegar + enough milk to make ¾ cup and let sit 5 minutes before using
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tablespoons melted butter
  • For the Glaze
  • 1 ½ cups powdered sugar
  • 4 tablespoons cocoa powder
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 3 tablespoons milk plus more if needed
  • Sprinkles or other garnish if desired


  • Preheat oven to 425°. Spray your donut pan with cooking spray (be sure to spray the inside circle too!)
  • Mix cake mix, sprinkles, buttermilk or milk/vinegar, eggs, and melted butter in large bowl using a hand mixer on medium speed. Mix until completely combined, about two minutes.
  • Add the batter to a large Ziploc bag. Seal the bag almost all the way, leaving about 1” open to allow air to escape. Snip one corner of the bag off and fill each cavity in your pan about 2/3 full.
  • Bake 7 minutes, until slightly browned. Let sit in the pan for 5 minutes before removing. Let cool.
  • To make the glaze: Mix all ingredients in a medium bowl. If glaze is too thick for dipping, add a little more milk. Dip each donut in the glaze and place on top of a cooling rack placed on top of a cookie sheet so it can drip. Top with sprinkles.
