Gather and Prepare the Ingredients
Before you can make your delicious funfetti donuts, you'll need to gather and prepare the ingredients. For this recipe, you'll need all-purpose flour, baking powder, salt, unsalted butter, granulated sugar, eggs, vanilla extract, rainbow sprinkles and vegetable oil. Make sure to measure the ingredients accurately for best results and preheat your oven to 350°F (177°C).
Make the Donut Batter
In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the all-purpose flour, baking powder, and salt. In a separate bowl, cream together the butter and sugar until light and fluffy. To that mixture, add eggs one at a time while mixing constantly. Finally, mix in the vanilla extract. Slowly add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients until everything is well combined, stirring in 1 tablespoon of rainbow sprinkles at a time until evenly distributed throughout the batter. Don't overmix!
Bake the Donuts in a Preheated Oven
Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Grease a standard 6-cavity donut pan with cooking spray. Drop about 2 tablespoons of the batter into each cavity, making sure not to overfill. Bake for 12–15 minutes until the donuts are golden brown and a toothpick inserted in the center of one comes out clean. Allow the donuts to cool completely before glazing. Enjoy!
Decorate with Funfetti Frosting and Sprinkles
Once the donuts are cooled, it’s time for the fun part—frosting and sprinkles! In a medium bowl, whisk together 1¼ cup of confectioners' sugar and 3 tablespoons of whole milk until smooth. Add in ¼ teaspoon of vanilla extract and food coloring to make your desired color. Dip the top of each donut into the frosting, then let them rest on a cooling rack with parchment paper beneath to catch any drips. Top with sprinkles and you’re good to go! Enjoy!
These delicious homemade funfetti donuts are perfect! They are perfect for a sweet start to the day, a special dessert, or even just an afternoon snack. Enjoy and have fun!
