Servings: 12 donuts


  • Measuring cups
  • Measuring spoons
  • Mixing bowls
  • Whisk
  • Wooden Spoon
  • Ziploc bags
  • Donut pans
  • Electric mixer
  • Oven
  • Oven mitts
  • Cooling rack
  • Foil pie pans (optional)
  • Stove Top (optional)
  • Small saucepan (optional)



  • 1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1 1/2 tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla
  • 1/2 tsp vinegar
  • 1/2 cup buttermilk
  • 1/2 cup canola oil plus 2 tsp
  • 1 egg lightly beaten
  • 1-2 tsp red food coloring depending on strength of coloring


  • 1/4 cup cream cheese softened
  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar
  • 2 tbsp cream or half & half
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • chocolate sprinkles optional



  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Lightly coat donut pans with baking spray
  • In a large bowl, mix together all-purpose flour, baking soda, salt, cocoa powder, and sugar. Set aside
  • In a medium bowl, whisk together the egg, buttermilk, canola oil, vanilla, red food coloring, and vinegar
  • Slowly pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients, whisking them together until all the clumps are gone. Batter will have a very heavy and wet texture
  • Using a piping bag (or a Ziploc bag with the corner cut out), pipe the donut mix into the donut pan. Fill the donut rings to about 1/2 full
  • If using a large donut pan, bake for about 10-12 minutes
  • Remove donuts from pans and let cool on wire racks


  • While the donuts are baking, mix all the ingredients for the cream cheese glaze together in a bowl and allow to sit at room temperature until donuts are cooled. This will blend the flavors
  • Once the donuts are cooled, dip the tops of the donuts into the frosting and place back on wire racks or on parchment paper to set
  • Enjoy!


Take It Down A Notch: This recipe should be easy for even PreK or young Tiny Chefs to accomplish. To make frosting the donuts a little easier for small hands, you can add a little more milk to the glaze so it is just slightly “looser”, put it in some shallow bowls (foil pie pans are a good choice) and let the child “dip” the donut into the glaze. You can also put chocolate sprinkles on top or, crumble one donut and use the crumbs to garnish the tops.
Kick It Up A Notch: While this recipe won’t be particularly challenging for an older Tiny Chef, it does provide a good opportunity to practice some “kitchen science”. Have child mix some vinegar and cocoa powder together to see the reaction that created the original red coloring that gave Red Velvet cake the name. You can also have the child make their own buttermilk by putting 1 Tbsp vinegar into a 1 cup measure and then filling the rest of the cup with milk. Let stand 5 minutes and you have a good buttermilk substitute.
