Funfetti Baked Donuts


Hey, hey, hey! Guess what this week is!?!?

It’s funfetti week!

Can you tell I’m just the slightest bit excited? Oy. I don’t get out much anymore. Forgive me.

Well, some people call it cake batter, but I think saying funfetti is much more fun. ;-) I’ll have a new funfetti recipe every day and on friday we’ll have a link party! You in?

My husband made this rockin’ badge. You like? I’ll have it hyperlinked for you guys to grab to put on your funfetti recipes on Friday!

Okay. Let’s talk baked donuts.

Seriously the greatest new invention. Who knew you could have a semi-healthy donut that you could make at home? I just wish I was the one who patented the pan. Sheesh.

I definitely have a new love for my donut pan. I’ve made strawberry, chocolate, raspberry, and oreo donuts so far. It’s the greatest. No more krispie kremes for me!

These funfetti baked donuts are so soft and fluffy. The pops of color from the sprinkles make every bite so happy.

If you ask me, they are perfect with a cup of coffee for a Monday morning breakfast!

On another and very important note, my good friend, Lauren, from Keep It Sweet is in the Martha Stewart American Made Awards running to help grow her amazing dessert business. If you remember, she did a giveaway on Chocolate & Carrots a few months ago! So, if you would be the kindest, head over HERE and vote for her. You can vote daily!
