Did you know November 11 is National Doughnut Day? In celebration, we partnered with POPSUGAR Must Have for this post. Hurry and secure your December box before they sell out!

I love doughnuts in the morning. Well, I actually love them any time of day, so when I came across a doughnut baking tray, I had to give it a try. Would the little bites be soft, delectable, and just slightly crisp on the outside? I happened to still have the Williams-Sonoma vanilla cupcake mix in my pantry from a past POPSUGAR Must Have box just begging to be used. I figured it would be the perfect base for a batch of funfetti doughnuts.

After mixing and adding some sprinkles, the batter went into the oven. I waited impatiently for the goodness to bake. Along with the amazing smell wafting, I saw the doughnuts rising, turning into adorable little rounds of deliciousness. After glazing and sprinkling again, I fully admit to eating at least two in a row. Maybe more.

Funfetti Doughnuts


  1. For the doughnuts
    1 container Williams-Sonoma vanilla cupcake mix
    8 tablespoons butter, cubed
    2 eggs
    1 cup milk
    2 tablespoons multicolored sprinkles
  1. For the glaze
    1 cup powdered sugar
    1-2 tablespoons milk
    Extra multicolored sprinkles for topping


  1. Preheat your oven to 350ºF.
  2. In a medium mixing bowl, pulse together the butter and cupcake mix with a hand mixer until it resembles coarse cornmeal.
  3. Slowly add the eggs and milk, whipping the mixture until all ingredients are incorporated. The batter will be a bit grainy, but that's just all the yummy vanilla bits.
  4. Add the sprinkles and gently stir. Pour the batter into a greased doughnut pan and bake for 12-15 minutes.
  5. Remove doughnuts and let cool completely before the next step.
  6. Mix together the powdered sugar and milk in a shallow bowl. Dip the tops of the doughnuts in the mixture and then place on a baking tray. Top with more sprinkles and enjoy!
