So to make these Strawberry Cake Mix Doughnuts, you just mix the cake mix with oil, eggs, and water and then bake them for about 10 minutes. Let them cool and then cover them in my new favorite frosting: Pillsbury Fluffy Frost in Strawberry Marshmallow. And then put sprinkles everywhere!
(And of course, you could use a different flavor cake mix if you really wanted but why would you want to? The strawberry is pink! Pink doughnuts!)
If you’ve never had a baked doughnut, they’re really more the texture of a cupcake buuuuut, it’s more fun when they’re shaped like doughnuts, right?
I love these and I hope you love them too. Let me know what your favorite ways to use Pillsbury cake mixes and frostings in the comments!

Whyyy? Why does the weather do this to me? Yesterday I laid in the sun while my kids played in the sprinkler after school and today? I’m cold.
What is this?! Texas, get it together!
Anyway, the brief moments of hot weather have me really looking forward to summer! And swimming! And beaching! And most importantly, grilling!
I was so desperate for barbecue yesterday after all the fun that I tossed together this quick and easy BBQ Chicken Pasta Salad for dinner.
So it’s the pasta and some chicken (I used a rotisserie one from the grocery store to make life extra simple) with bacon, cheddar cheese, red bell pepper and corn. And then it’s all tossed with my favorite Heinz BBQ Classic Sweet & Thick sauce.
Heinz has been doing really cool things in the bbq sauce world recently. Have you seen their regional varieties? They have Carolina, Texas, Kansas City, and Memphis styles and they were all crafted with local Pitmasters. Seriously cool.
The Kansas City Sweet & Smoky is my favorite among the regional bunch and it would definitely be delicious in this pasta salad. I’ve already got a bottle of it waiting for my next bbq craving!
But yes, the Heinz BBQ Classic Sweet & Thick is just as the name suggests. It’s sweet and thick and everything I love about a barbecue. This is the one I buy for my kids to dip nuggets in, it’s what I use when I do crockpot barbecue chicken, it just works for everything. I definitely always trust the great taste of Heinz.
Happy Monday! Errr… let’s try to make it a happy Monday!
I have cookies to make your Monday a little less horrible.
Yep, still really loving all things lemon right now. I don’t know what my deal is but I can’t get enough.
I made these Glazed Lemon Cookies yesterday and then ate 5 of them before I even took pictures. It’s a problem.
These cookies were really simple. One of my cookie pet peeves is finicky dough. Like, if you don’t chill it, they spread too much. If you don’t flatten them out, they stay in strange little balls. You know what I mean?
I just want cookie dough that I can put on the baking sheet and it does exactly what it’s supposed to do. Why is that so hard?!
Anyway, these cookies do exactly what they are supposed to do. I just rolled them into balls and placed them on the baking sheet and they spread out into perfect little cute cookie shapes.
And they’re so soft and amazing! The glaze is just the right amount of tart.
