Today was my Sunday to bake at church again. I couldn’t decide what to make at first. I figured I would do either donuts or muffins. I browsed my Pinterest Breakfast & Baked boards to see what I haven’t made yet. After looking at several pins of donuts I knew thats what I was going to make.
I decided on Red Velvet Donuts by Jessica over at How Sweet It Is. (Who happens to also be in the Pittsburgh area.) Only changes I made were I switched out the flour and used lactaid/vinegar instead of buttermilk.
These donuts are super easy to make. I mixed all the dry ingredients together in a medium size bowl. Next adding in the milk and a slightly beaten egg to get this nice thick batter.
In a small bowl, mix baking soda and vinegar together, then add in vanilla. Add the mixture to the doughnut batter, then stir in red food coloring. I only ended up using about have the red food coloring.
Spoon batter into a well greased donut pan. Fill them about 2/3 full.
Bake for about 7 minutes on 425°. While the donuts were baking & cooling, I made up the glaze. I mixed together the cream cheese and vanilla with a fork before sifting in the powdered sugar. After mixing those together a bit, I whisked in the heavy cream. I ended up using 3 tablespoons of cream.
I decided on dipping the donuts into the glaze instead of spreading it on.
Riley LOVED them. And they seemed to be a hit at church this morning as well. For the donut holes, I used my mini muffin tray.
