Funfetti Cake Donuts

May 23, 2019Teresa

Funfetti Cake Donuts are the BEST donuts ever! No kidding. These are everything you’ve ever wanted in a donut. They’re flavored with almond extract and filled with funfetti sprinkles. Then they’re glazed with a vanilla and almond extract powdered sugar icing. Of course, they have loads of sprinkles on top. Yes, these earth shattering donuts are some kind of spectacular. 🙂

By now, you know I love making homemade donuts. I have 15 other kinds of donuts on my blog. I have three pumpkin kinds: Pumpkin Toffee, Glazed Pumpkin and Pumpkin Chocolate Chip. I have three chocolate chip kinds: Glazed Chocolate, Chocolate Chip and Double Chocolate. I have two blueberry kinds: Glazed Blueberry and Blueberry Almond. I have five fruit-flavored donuts: Cherry Almond, Glazed Lemon Poppyseed, Glazed Orange, Blackberry and Raspberry. I also have a couple that don’t fit into any category: Baked Vanilla and Glazed Buttermilk. All are outrageously fantastic.

I get messages all the time asking about my donut pans. I purchased the 20-cavity donut pans at H-E-B grocery stores in the Dallas metroplex. We also purchased some of them at Jo-Ann’s Fabric Shop. Amazon also carries the Wilton 20-cavity pan. As far as I’m concerned they’re worth their weight in gold! Most of my recipes make slightly under 20 donuts for each batch. So these pans are perfect.

I also prefer baking donuts rather than frying. You’ll NEVER get me to fry donuts. Too much work. I’ve made them that way before–about four decades ago. Too much work. I also like piping the donut dough into the donut cavities rather than trying to spoon the mixture into the pans. They’re a little more uniform in appearance that way. Not as messy, either.

While this recipe has a long list of ingredients, it’s really not that difficult. You mix the dry ingredients. You mix the wet ingredients. You mix the two together and add funfetti sprinkles. That’s it. I do recommend that you stir the batter about half way before adding the sprinkles. That way, you can ensure the donut mix doesn’t turn a sickly brown or lavender color after stirring.

Guys, if you want the best Funfetti Cake Donuts in town, this recipe is it! The lovely almond flavor makes a vanilla donut more interesting. Plus, you already know donuts are my comfort food of choice. Bring ’em on. 🙂

Instructions
DONUTS:
  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
  2. Spray donut pan cavities with cooking spray.
  3. Set aside.
  4. In a large mixing bowl, whisk flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt and sugar.
  5. Set aside.
  6. In a medium sized mixing bowl, whisk the milk, sour cream and eggs until smooth.
  7. Whisk in melted butter, canola oil, and both vanilla and almond extracts.
  8. Pour the butter mixture into the flour mixture.
  9. Stir until about half mixed.
  10. Add sprinkles and stir just until combined.
  11. Do not overmix.
  12. Batter will be very thick.
  13. Spoon batter into a large zip-lock bag.
  14. Trim a corner off the bottom of the bag and pipe batter into each donut cavity.
  15. Fill each cup 3∕4 full.
  16. Bake for 10-12 minutes at 425 degrees or until the edges are lightly browned and a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.
  17. Remove from oven and cool approximately 5 minutes on a cooling rack.
  18. Remove donuts from the pan and dip individually in vanilla glaze.
  19. Set donuts on wire racks.
  20. Immediately sprinkle a teaspoon or two of sprinkles on top of the glaze.
  21. Allow donuts to remain on cooling racks until icing sets, approximately 10 minutes.

Recipe Notes

NOTE: I used a full 9-ounce container of funfetti sprinkles to make this batch of donuts.

NOTE:  You need to ice each donut and sprinkle with funfetti before moving on to ice the next donut. Otherwise, the icing dries too fast and the funfetti sprinkles will not adhere to the icing.
