Baked Red Velvet Donuts

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

1 egg

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.  

Yes please!
