The Ingredients Required to Make the Large Family Red Velvet Donuts

You can prepare the Red Velvet Donuts with these ingredients:

  • Flour. The recipe starts with flour that will help you prepare the dough that will eventually turn into delicious donuts.
  • Vanilla Extract. Give the donuts a slight vanilla touch with the vanilla extract.
  • Cocoa Powder. Be sure to have a cocoa powder that you can add to your mixing bowl when creating the donut dough.
  • Red Food Coloring. The red food coloring is what gives red velvet cake its beautiful color.
  • Buttermilk. Adding buttermilk to your donut dough is a great way to ensure that the donuts rise perfectly and are as moist as possible.
  • Cream Cheese. You will use the cream cheese for the frosting that gets applied to the donuts.

Helpful Tips on Storing the Red Velvet Donuts and Making Them Ahead of Time

If you have already baked your Red Velvet Donuts and need to store them, you should place them on parchment paper in an airtight container and keep them in the fridge to preserve their freshness for as long as five days. 

If you have just made the dough for the donuts but have not yet baked them, you can store the dough in an airtight container in your freezer until you want to use it. The dough will stay good for six months. Simply defrost the dough by putting it in the fridge the night before you end up making the donuts.

What to Add to Your Red Velvet Donuts

After your donuts have cooled down, you can add your cream cheese frosting on top. You might want to leave them just like that or add sprinkles to the donuts. Besides sprinkles, mini chocolate morsels are a great topping to put on your Red Velvet Donuts. Some people like to add chopped pieces of chocolate, shredded coconut, and even different types of chopped nuts on top of their donuts with the frosting.
