When it comes to matters of the kitchen, I love cutting corners. I’ve never met a pre cut vegetable or a boxed cake that I didn’t like. And these donuts are a prime example of a quick and easy recipe that’s fun and fancy, but still leaves time for the rest of that to-do list.
Now don’t get me wrong, there’s a time and a place for slow dinners and lengthy dessert recipes, but not every night is that night. So if you’re looking for something pretty (and tasty) to bring to a party or snack on with friends, look no further.
- Donut pan
- A box of cake mix
- Vegetable Oil
- Milk or water
- Flowers (I threw a little saran wrap under these, but it’s still wise to buy organic, edible flowers)
Follow the instructions for mixing up your cake batter, and pour some into each donut ring (I filled each one about 3/4 full). Follow the instructions on the box for baking.
To create the drizzle, microwave a couple spoonfuls of the icing, so that it’s runnier. Then dip the spoon in the warm icing and just drizzle it onto each baked donut. I went in both directions so they wouldn’t be too uniform.
Trim your flowers off at the base, and place them wherever you like on the donut. Add a little sprig of herb (I used thyme).
If you feel like it, you can mix up a floral drink and have a pretty little feast!
Now, go enjoy! And if you make these yourself, feel free to tag #kitandforage on Instagram – I’d love to see what you come up with!
