  • donut pan


  • 1 box vanilla or chocolate cake mix can substitute a gluten free, keto or other cake mix
  • ¾ cup milk can substitute dairy free
  • ¼ cup oil or melted butter
  • 1 whole egg can substitute flax or egg replacer egg
  • ½ cup chocolate chips (for chocolate donuts) can substitute dairy free
  • ½-1 tsp pure vanilla extract (for vanilla donuts)

For the Vanilla Glaze

  • 1 ½ cup powdered sugar
  • 1 tbsp melted butter
  • 1-2 tbsp milk
  • ½ tsp pure vanilla extract

For the Chocolate Frosting:

  • ½ cup chocolate chips, melted can substitute dairy free
  • 2 tbsp butter, melted
  • ½ cup powdered sugar
  • 1-2 tbsp milk as needed


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Lightly grease a donut pan and set aside.
  • In a bowl, mix together all the donut ingredients until smooth. Fill each donut pan cavity ¾ of the way full. Bake at 350 degrees for 11-14 minutes or until donut is cooked and springs lightly back when you press lightly on them or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the donut comes out clean.

To Make the Frosting:

  • Stir together the frosting ingredients. Dip the tops of the donut into the frosting, then move to cooling rack to allow frosting to set completely.

Vanilla: Allow the frosting to set then paint the tops of the donuts with a paintbrush dipped in different food colors.
Chocolate: Sprinkle frosted donuts with rainbow mini M&M's.
