Baked Funfetti & Chocolate Nutella Donuts + Super Outdoorsy

Standard

I bought a heart-shaped donut pan a few weeks ago, and it’s been burning a hole in my kitchen cupboards ever since!

They’re easier than you think! And they’re extremely donut-like! I was afraid they would just be heart-shaped cupcakes. Not even sure why that would be a bad thing, but I was happy nonetheless.

Baked Funfetti Donuts (via cookies&cups)

2 3/4 cups Funfetti Cake Mix
3/4 cup buttermilk
2 eggs
2 Tbsp melted butter
Preheat oven to 425 degrees
Spray the donut pan lightly with cooking spray.

In mixing bowl beat all ingredients on medium speed for 30 seconds.  Transfer batter in a ziplock bag.  Cut of the corner of the ziplock and squeeze batter into each donut mold, filling 2/3 full.  Bake for 7-9 minutes until the tops are slightly browned and spring back when touched.

Check out cookies & cups for recipes for a glaze AND a frosting. You need both! Definitely!

You want the Chocolate Nutella version? All I did was switch up the cake mix flavor and mix up a glaze powdered sugar, 2 TBSP of Nutella, and milk.

My beautiful baking buddy! Can you believe we baked donuts instead of ran today? Oops! I did sneak in a quick twice around the block (1.58 miles) before she showed up. Nothing like a 12 minute run to burn off my Saturday morning antsiness.

Later this afternoon, we finally got the chance to meet up with some old college friends of mine. We’ve been trying to find a time to get together basically since we moved to Denver, but we finally made it happen!

We decided it would be cool to meet alongside a big, muddy, snowy hill for a true test of my outdoorsiness.Ryan is an accomplished photographer who likes to photograph adventurous things so we did a little trail running photo shoot. Kevin and I seriously had a blast slipping and sliding all over the place and arguing over who has better running form. Thankfully, the weather cooperated so I wasn’t freezing to death! I know it’s hard to imagine, but some of them may turn out better than some of my iPhone self-portraits!We’ll give you a peek someday. I didn’t even bring my baby iPhone out there in the elements. I’m sure I would’ve dropped it down a hill somewhere. Afterwards, we enjoyed dinner and catching up with the whole family. We even shared some of our donuts because we’re so nice.

We got home nice & early so I tricked Kevin into a quick gym trip. Kevin: “Can I have a donut first?” Seriously? Who asks that?

These are the socks I had to wear since my one good pair was sopping wet.  What about the 12 pairs of socks I got for Christmas? Boyd has been chomping them down one by one.

And these are the pants my husband chose to wear:

Green machine!!!! I ran another easy 2 while he hung out on the elliptical. Right about now we are totally lazing it up on the futon. We have another big day tomorrow!!

Favorite kind of donut? Not a huge fan. I go for the sprinkles and the long johns. I guess I need to learn how to bake long johns.

Do you wear pjs in public? I did so regularly in high school. Very regularly. But after living in the DR, I don’t think that’s ever going to happen again. ;)

  1. Those look like really tasty donuts! Yumm! …….Can’t say I wear pj’s in public. Mainly because I don’t really have pj’s-they are a T-shirt and the husband’s boxers. I don’t wear those in public but I wear my workout clothes anytime after 5:00 that I’ve been at home! :)
    Those cute socks- I would be bummed if they got chewed!

  2. One of my pet peeves is wearing pajama pants in public. As a teacher- formerly high school, now college-I feel that it is a sign of laziness. Sweatpants, you can get away with, but bright yellow spongebob-I say put some effort in. Your donuts look delish!

  3. If I hadn’t been craving doughnuts all week (and then satisfied that craving by going to Dunkin Donuts), I definitely would make these asap! I prefer doughnuts over cupcakes any day!

    I have actually never worn pajamas in public (except for pajama day at school) because my parents thought it was a sloppy look. Plus, I love clothes too much!
