How do you make Rainbow Tie Dye Mini Donuts?
I’m all about easy desserts, and these donuts are just that. They’re made from a basic white cake mix with the addition of butter, evaporated milk, and eggs. I used a mini donut pan, which uses next to nothing for the batter, so one cake mix will make a ton of mini donuts.
I split the batter into 6 bowls and used red, orange, yellow, green, blue, and purple food coloring gels. I wanted bright colors, which is why I picked gel colors over drops. Once I had the colors set, I transferred each color to a small freezer bag. I like to use them for piping because they are usually as stiff as the pastry bags, and I can seal the top closed.
I sprayed my donut pan with canola oil ahead of time. Then, I piped a tiny bit of each colored batter. My mini donut pan said to only fill each donut 1/3 of the way full, and I have to agree since I overfilled one batch and they were ginormous.
After filling each donut just 1/3 full, I swirled my finger around each one, and then I dropped the donut pan onto the counter from about 1 above to get out any air bubbles. My first two batches did not come out how I wanted. The first batch was too full, and the second batch had lots of air bubbles. Once I swirled the batter and then dropped it, my donuts came out perfect.
These bake for just 5 minutes. Let them cool for a minute or two before dropping them onto parchment paper. I decided to dip mine in lavender and lime green chocolate melts. I dipped about half in lavender and half in lime green, and then used the other color to drizzle on top.
