Have you ever made donuts in a donut pan before?

My experience goes something like this.

Got two donut pans for my birthday years ago and I was all excited I could make amazing donuts any way I’d like all from the comforts of my home and they would be baked not fried so I could have more of them right?!

I got to work and made one batch of donuts and less just say all my dreams were quickly swept away and replaced by the memories of terrible donuts that were so dry I just couldn’t think to try again, so two and half years went by of my life and my donut pans sat discarded in my cupboard. Every time I caught a glimpse of them my heart dropped a little as I can’t stand to have an epic failure in the kitchen and never recover from it.

This story just breaks your heart right?!

I kept seeing all of these recipes around from bloggers and their baked donuts and I was starting to get a bit jealous. If they can do it so can I!

Enter these amazing Baked Toasted Coconut Red Velvet Donuts. Quite the name huh?

They are pure amazingness. Knock of your socks, epic, rock star qualities. They are light and fluffy, moist (remember my previous were terribly dry) and slightly cake like. Well, they are made from a cake mix so go figure! Plus it gives you an excuse to technically eat cake for breakfast. Who is going to turn that down? Not me!

They ridiculously light and fluffy donuts are topping with an rich cream cheese frosting and toasted coconut! Are you drooling yet? I am. I might have to run over to the kitchen and treat myself to another one…..

If you have discarded your donut pan and let it collect dust like I did please for the Love of Mary go dig it out and try these donuts. They will forever change your opinion of that pan. Trust me.

    I love baked donuts! I just made some red velvet last weekend with cream cheese frosting, but I love the addition of the toasted coconut!

    Looks so good! I LOVE baked doughnuts, and red velvet, and cream cheese…you’ve won me over!

    can you substitute the cake mix by cake flour and food coloring? we don’t have the red velvet cake mix over here..

    • Julie Evink


      I’m not sure! There are recipes for completely homemade Red Velvet Donuts without cake mix if you google and look for those!

      Thanks Cate! I made two more varieties today so my new found love for donuts keeps going!

    I’ll need a half dozen of these please! They just look amazing. I do not have a donut pan and see all these beautiful recipes online and make me want to get one. But I’m scared I’ll never use it like the Madelines pan that just stares at me.

  • Tonia


    Those are so much fun! It has been too long since I’ve made any donuts! Time to break out the pan again.
