Cake Mix Donuts and NEW Simply Juice Drinks!

Cake Mix Donuts 11 685x1024 Cake Mix Donuts and NEW Simply Juice Drinks!

Breakfasts at our house usually go one of two ways. It’s either a quick and easy breakfast, or it’s a slow will it ever be done so we can eat kinda breakfast. We find that on weekdays where school is impending, it’s the former. It becomes a treat when we get to sit down together for a nice breakfast. We’re working on this, I promise. I don’t ever want life to get so busy that we miss out on each other’s company. 

I’ve been known to make homemade donuts for breakfast. No complaints from the girls. Or the husband for that matter. These Baked Lemon Berry Donuts were amazing. I’ve also made a blueberry version of these that was so tasty.

The other day I wanted to make some homemade donuts for breakfast, but I didn’t have all of the ingredients. Of course, I consulted Pinterest and came across a recipe for CAKE MIX donuts. I thought to myself, does it really get any easier than that? Decision made. Donuts created. One of the easiest breakfasts ever. 

Donuts No Icing 685x1024 Cake Mix Donuts and NEW Simply Juice Drinks!

I can feel better about these being made of cake because they aren’t fried like most donuts, right?

I can also feel better about them because they take about 5 minutes to make, right? Of course!

Simply Juice 685x1024 Cake Mix Donuts and NEW Simply Juice Drinks!

You know something that goes great with donuts?

Juice.

One of my favorite brands, Simply Beverages, has come out with a new premium line of juice drinks that are so incredibly tasty y’all. Our family has always been a fan of this brand. It is high quality!

This new line offers these flavors:

  • Tropical
  • Fruit Punch
  • Mixed Berry

All of which are ALL NATURAL (not from concentrate yay), made with simple ingredients, and contain no preservatives.

They all taste so pure and incredibly natural. I’m not just saying that either. You can always tell when a juice has a bunch of stuff added. This juice drink tastes like they just squeezed the living daylights out of the fruit and boom, juice!

Donut Pan 1 1024x685 Cake Mix Donuts and NEW Simply Juice Drinks!

To make the donuts, you’re going to need a donut pan. You can grab this Wilton Nonstick 6-Cavity Donut Pan for only $9.99 at Amazon. I have a large and a small version of this pan. The mini donuts are plenty big. Though I sometimes still find myself eating more than one!

Making these is almost like making a cake but with fewer ingredients. It’s easy, quick, and makes plenty. They look pretty, too! My daughter told me that they look like I got them from a bakery. I was going to tell her that I did, but instead I just said thank you with a big ole smile on my face. 😉

Ingredients 1024x685 Cake Mix Donuts and NEW Simply Juice Drinks!

The ingredients for these are so simple. I want to eventually play with the consistency of the donuts. They are still a little light like cake, so I’m going to work on tweaking them to get a bit more thick.

So quick and easy!

I love to pair my donuts with Simply Juice Drinks. Nothing goes better with a sweet donut like a smart beverage choice. The hardest part was picking which was my favorite…

Tropical 685x1024 Cake Mix Donuts and NEW Simply Juice Drinks!

I had a bit of a hard time deciding if I liked the Tropical or Mixed Berry the best. I love pineapple so I really enjoyed this one. SO good. It goes well with whatever I choose for breakfast.

Like for instance, this here donut. Yeah, it’s made of CAKE!

Simply Juice Drink Mixed Berry I think has made its way to the top as my fave. I’m a little fruity sometimes.
