I took the week off work this week, which means I have some time to catch up on my blogging. I made these donuts back in October. Back then, we were doing good with making donuts at home on Saturday mornings. It's a tradition we've been slacking on the past month!
I picked up this cake mix from Target. I had never seen it before and knew I could put it to good use, not really having an idea what I would make with it. Since there was an icing that paired with it, I picked it up too.
While going through my cake mixes to see which one I was going to use for donuts, I decided to give this one a try. I was hoping they would be the perfect fall donut. The baked donuts are so simple to make. This is the recipe I used as my guide for making these donuts. I was very pleased with how they came out. Hubs preferred the chocolate ones, but my mom and I enjoyed these. Definitely perfect for a cool fall morning. Enjoy!
Caramel Apple Baked Donuts
1 box of caramel apple cake mix
1 cup of milk
2 large eggs
1 stick of butter (melted)
1 can of caramel apple frosting
Preheat oven to 350. Grease donut pan.
Mix eggs, butter, milk and cake mix.
Stir until smooth.
Pour batter into donut pan (1/3 filled).
Bake 11-13 minutes.
Let them cool completely.
Put about half of the container of frosting in a microwavable bowl.
Microwave for about 20 seconds and stir. Repeat until the frosting is melted enough for you to easily dip and coat the donuts.
I dipped some of the donuts and drizzled frosting over the others.
After I was done with the frosting, I let them cool a bit.
Store in an air tight container for 3 days. I also froze the leftover donuts in a freezer bag.
