Servings 12 doughnuts



  • 1 cup all purpose flour
  • cup Funfetti Cake Mix
  • ¼ cup granulated white sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ¾ cup milk
  • 2 large eggs, beaten
  • teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter, melted
  • tablespoons sprinkles


  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 to 2 tablespoons milk (add a little at a time)


  • cup powdered sugar
  • 2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
  • ¼ teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 to 2 tablespoons hot water (add a little at a time)

Sprinkles for topping


    • Prepare the doughnuts: Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F. Lightly spray a doughnut pan with nonstick cooking spray. In a large bowl, mix flour, cake mix, sugar, baking powder, and salt. Stir in milk, eggs, vanilla and melted butter. Mix until well combined. Stir in the sprinkles. Scrape the batter into a large zip bag, snip the corner and squeeze the batter into the doughnut shapes in the pan- only filling 1/2 to 3/4-full. Bake 8 to 10 minutes, until the doughnuts spring back when touched. Cool the doughnuts completely before adding the icing.
    • Prepare the glaze: Each of the glaze recipes listed will ice 12 doughnuts, so if you'd rather have all vanilla or all chocolate- you'll need to double the recipe for that. To prepare the vanilla glaze, use a whisk to combine the powdered sugar and vanilla in a small bowl. Whisk in just enough milk to create a nice dipping consistency. For the chocolate glaze- same thing- add just enough hot water to create a nice dipping consistency. Dip the doughnuts into the glaze and then place them on a wire rack to set the glaze. Add more sprinkles on top.
