Red Velvet Fest 2015 is still in full swing!
Yep. Things are still very red and sprinkle-y around these parts. (By the way, there’s a giveaway in yesterday’s post you should check out!)
Actually, these donuts are more pink than red, because I am a big ol’ dummy and couldn’t find my red food coloring until exactly after I baked these. No, really, right after. I took them out of the oven, turned around, and saw the red staring back at me from my pantry shelves.
Whatever. The “electric pink” works well enough!
I totally made mini donuts last year for Valentine’s Day. Perhaps this is now my weird tradition! They’re just so cute and perfect in pink and red hues!
I know I’ve gone on and on before about how much tastier fried donuts are, and it is true… but baked are like 8 kajillion times easier to make, you guys. And these are still delicious! They’re chocolate-y, vanilla-y and covered with a cream cheese glaze that I would put on my shoe and eat.
(*ahem* No, that is actually not the same batter from these donuts, as that batter is far redder, but I just wanted to show you a photo of how to put the batter in a large Ziplock to pipe into the donut pan. It works really well if you secure it with a rubber band!)
This is another one of my Food Fanatic recipes, so please check out my post over there, too! The photos are different and so are the words! (Also, it is surprisingly difficult to write a post about the same recipe twice, but different!)
