Unicorn Mini Donuts Recipe From Val's Kitchen

Unicorn Mini Donuts

Donuts. Doughnuts. No matter how you spell the word (I use donuts), those circular treats with the hole in the middle make many people smile. There’s nothing quite like the taste of a freshly baked donut. This recipe lets you make a batch of really colorful mini donuts. the recipe is simple to follow and doesn’t require any extra special ingredients, which is a good thing because they’re going to disappear quickly and you’ll be getting requests for more. Here’s the instructions on how to make them.

Equipment needed

Donut Ingredients

  • 1 box french vanilla cake mix
  • 1 stick unsalted sweet cream butter
  • 1 cup whole milk
  • 3 eggs
  • pink, purple, green, and blue gel colors
  • 4 bowls to split the batter into four colors
  • rainbow sprinkles

Donut Glaze Ingredients

  • 2 cups powdered sugar
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 1 tsp vanilla

Donut Instructions

Turn on the mini donut maker and let it preheat while you make the batter.

Using a stand mixer, combine the cake mix, butter, eggs, and milk and mix until combined.

Divide the batter up evenly into the four bowls.

Put 1 color into each bowl and mix until combined

Take a small spoon and scoop some of each color into the bottom of the donut maker.

Bake until the donuts are golden brown, which takes about 3-6 minutes.

Repeat until all batter is used.

Set aside to cool while you make the donut glaze.

Donut Glaze Instructions

Place all ingredients and mix until combined.

Take a cooled donut and dip the top of the donut into the glaze.

Place the donut onto the plate and sprinkle with rainbow sprinkles.

They’re easy to use! And they’re pretty affordable now, the one in my post is under $20 I believe.
