These red velvet donuts are perfect for a special but easy Valentines Day treat for your loved one-or yourself!!
Here’s what you’ll need:
1/2 cup buttermilk
1/2 cup plus 2 Tablespoons vegetable oil
3/4 cup sugar
1 1/4 cup flour
1 teaspoon cocoa powder
1 Tablespoon red food coloring
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 teaspoon vinegar
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
Simply mix all the ingredients together. I find it easiest to stir together the dry then add in everything else, but it’s not a must. It will be smooth and beautifully bright red!
Next take your donut pan and spray the heck out of it with cooking spray. Then take a Ziploc bag and cut a tiny hole in one of the bottom corners and pour in your batter. Use this to fill the donut pan about 1/2 way to 3/4 full. It will look neon and fluorescent against the donut pan. Don’t worry you won’t start glowing when you eat these.
Pop these into a 350 degree oven for 10-12 minutes. If you are using a mini donut pan then bake for about 5-7 minutes.
When they come out of the oven begin devouring them hot just like they are. You could also sprinkle some powdered sugar on top, make a cream cheese frosting, or make a simple powdered sugar glaze and then devour them…
If you’re feeling really fancy drizzle some delicious thick chocolate on top.
