Everyone loves donuts, but few people love how difficult traditional donuts are to make at home. Between making the dough and deep frying them just right in oil, this is typically one labor-intensive dessert. In fact, these treats are so tricky to make, you have to wonder if they’re ever worth the homemade touch. (Sorry donuts, forgive my blasphemous words.)
But if you’ve ever had these doubtful thoughts, you need never question your desire for donuts again! When you have this simple, brilliant two-ingredient recipe, you can make donuts anytime and out of anything.
Literally. The flexibility of this recipe makes it so you can make so many fun flavors out of essentially anything.
The formula of this clever recipe is using one soft ingredient (of your own devising) and a boxed cake mix. This allows you to really play around with an incredible amount of flavor combinations, as LittleThings shows with a few of their own amazing flavors combos!
Our favorites? It’s hard to choose between applesauce and yellow cake mix, canned pumpkin and chocolate cake mix, or bananas and strawberry cake mix. Any of these duos make for an amazing explosion of flavor and also create an easily malleable mix, which is perfect to spoon or squeeze out into a donut pan.
