Oh, Memorial Day. It’s coming guys. I’ll be spending it drinking mimosas on a boat at the sandbar in Key Biscayne, but then comes 4th of July not soon after. July 4th is that day when we embrace everything we love about our country – and momentarily forget those things we don’t love quite so much. Firecrackers, barbecues, beers and buddies – it’s what the 4th of July is all about! This super fun and easy Red, White & Blue Patriotic Mini Donuts Recipe is sure to be a hit for your family as everyone sits down to eat breakfast and get ready for the big day full of fun!
Red, White & Blue Patriotic Mini Donuts Recipe
- 1 box (15 oz) white cake mix
- 1 egg
- 1 cup water
- 1/4 cup oil
- red food coloring – Wilton Gels in No Taste Red
- blue food coloring – Wilton Gels in Royal Blue
- 1/2 cup white sugar
Preheat oven to 325 (if your mini donut pan is dark, otherwise 350) and grease your mini donut pan with cooking spray. Set aside.
In a mixing bowl, add cake mix, egg, water and oil. Mix well by hand until all lumps are gone.
Divide batter into three equal portions. Place two portions in a small bowl and one in a sealable bag. Add red and blue food coloring to each bowl to tint the batter. Place batter into sealable bag. Snip the ends of the sealable bag and pipe the batter into the prepared mini donut pan. You’ll want to fill the pan only about half way with batter.
Bake for 7 minutes. Let mini donuts cool in pan for 2 minutes. Remove from pan. Place in white sugar to coat both sides. Cool completely before serving.
Wipe pan with a paper towel and spray with cooking spray in between making each batch of donuts.
This Red, White & Blue Patriotic Mini Donuts Recipe makes 60 mini donuts.
