Just a heads up: Cake mix donuts don’t taste exactly like donuts you’d buy at the store. Because they are baked and not fried, its a little different, but they are almost the same to “cake donuts”. The taste is different per the cake mix you’d like to use.

MINI DONUTS RECIPE FOR DONUT MAKER
250 grams Cake mix
1/4 cup of vegetable oil
1 cup of water
Whisk the ingredients together until well combined – a few lumps will remain. Bake Donuts in the Donut Maker. Transfer into cooling rack and let it cool before starting to glaze.
For the Donut Glaze:
1 tbsp butter, melted
1.5 cups powdered sugar
2 tbsp milk
Candy sprinkles, garnish
Chocolate sprinkles, garnish
Melt 1 tablespoon of butter, then whisk in 1.5 cups of powdered sugar and about 2 tablespoons of milk (gradually add with little milk and add a little more as needed). The glaze should be somewhat runny. Dip the donut halfway into the glaze, then turn the donut sideways to allow extra glaze to run off.
Let it firm up on a cooling rack, adding sprinkles immediately if desired. Let it stand for a few hours, the glaze will be firm enough after and you can stack donuts on a plate without squishing the top. Perfect!
TOFFEE TOPPINGS GLAZE
125g condensed milk
50g castor sugar
1 tbsp golden syrup
Melt the butter in a saucepan.
Stir in the rest of the ingredients.
Just experiment a little with how much glaze you need to put in each donut (thick or thin). Thin glaze dries fairly clear, it lets the color of the donut to show through. But the thick glaze stays opaque white.
If you want cute little donuts, allow them to cool completely before you start glazing – the glaze doesn’t look as good if it melts on a hot donut.
Though hot donuts taste better, so if you want to glaze and eat them immediately go get some and leave some for your presentation. Awesome!
