“Baked” Toasted Coconut Red Velvet Donuts ~ Easy donuts made with a Red Velvet Cake Mix and topped with Cream Cheese Frosting and Toasted Coconut!
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.
