Funfetti Doughnuts

Just last month I made my very first batch of doughnuts. Breakfast doughnuts were light and fluffy, truly living up to their name. Now these Funfetti Doughnuts are for when your sweet tooth is kicking you in the ass.

Like I’ve said before, doughnuts are somehow so randomly easy. These are even easier because they are made with Funfetti cake mix. A little bit of cake mix, buttermilk, eggs and butter is all you need to make the actual doughnut. What makes them special is the double glaze.

You’ve got a glaze covering the doughnuts and a frosting on top. It kind of tastes like a Krispie Kreme and that’s just fine with me. That’s like my only doughnut memory, enjoying a fresh raspberry filled Krispie Kreme.

Not weird at all I just made a ‘doughnut memory’.
