Ingredients

For the donuts (makes 12):

  • 3 large eggs
  • 1/3 cup melted coconut oil
  • 1/4 cup almond milk
  • 1 Tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 1 box Simple Mills Vanilla Cake Mix

For the glaze:

  • 1 1/2 cups powdered sugar
  • 3-4 Tablespoons champagne or prosecco
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla bean paste or vanilla extract

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease 2 standard donut pans and set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk eggs together. Whisk in oil, almond milk, and vanilla extract until fully combined.
  3. Stir in Simple Mills Vanilla Cake Mix until mixture is smooth and fully combined.
  4. Pour batter into a liquid measuring cup with a spout, and pour batter out evenly among the wells in the donut pans (you can also do this with a spoon, but I find it easiest to use the measuring cup).
  5. Bake for 10-12 minutes, until risen and golden brown at edges. Let cool for a few minutes in the pan, then remove to a wire cooling rack to cool completely. Note you may have to run a thin spatula along the edges of each donut before removing from the pan.
  6. While the donuts are baking, whisk together powdered sugar, champagne, and vanilla bean paste or extract. Start with 3 tablespoons of champagne, and add another if you want it more liquidy. It should be thick though so it adheres to the donuts!
  7. Dip one side of each cooled donut in the glaze (I like to dip the smooth side that was facing up when baking), then place back on a wire rack set over wax paper. Top with sprinkles or shredded coconut and enjoy with a mimosa!
