Baked Red Velvet Doughnuts

So to start on our quest to incorporate red velvet into EVERY dessert category, today we’re making Baked Red Velvet Doughnuts with Cream Cheese Glaze. They have that quintessential red velvet flavor that’s somewhere in between chocolate & vanilla, a completely moist crumb with the perfect cake doughnut texture, and a deliciously sweet and slightly tangy cream cheese glaze.

Now to make these red velvet doughnuts (just like any baked doughnut recipe in fact), it’s very straight forward. We whisk together our dry ingredients (flour, a little cocoa powder, baking soda, and sugar), then the wet ingredients are mixed together separately. Then the wet ingredients get poured into the dry and everything is whisked together until the batter is just combined.

What else makes these so soft, tender & moist you ask?? Buttermilk & sour cream. Buttermilk is a key ingredient in red velvet that gives that je ne sais quoi. Plus it makes for the softest cake crumb. Then the sour cream acts as insurance against dry baked goods.

  • 1 cup all-purpose flour , spooned & leveled
  • 2 teaspoons cocoa powder
  • 1/3 cup granulated sugar
