Vanilla Cake Donuts are so easy to make, the addition of Greek Yogurt make these cake donuts soft and moist, perfect plain or just as delicious with an easy Chocolate Ganache topping. Either way these Easy Dipped Vanilla Cake Donuts are a tasty breakfast, snack or dessert recipe.
Donuts! I thought donuts especially Vanilla Cake Donuts would be a great way to celebrate my second blog anniversary, yes how time flies.
I also hoped you noticed An Italian in my Kitchen has a bit of a new look, what do you think? Do you like it? And well, it is almost Valentine’s Day, so what the heck, donuts for everyone.
Ever since I first made cake donuts, Mocha Cake Donuts to be exact, I have been obsessed with them. It doesn’t help that the Italian eggs me on by letting me know that yes, my cake donuts are exactly what he was looking for, soft and absolutely yummy!
Or should I say, perfect for morning café-latte-dunking. My poor Vanilla Cake Donuts.
The other day I was out grocery shopping with my youngest daughter and she saw these adorable heart and candy sprinkles, well it didn’t take much to talk me into buying them.
“Just imagine what we could do with these!” and we did. From Valentine Chocolate Dipped Heart Cookies to these yummy Easy Dipped Vanilla Cake Donuts with a White Chocolate Ganache.
Vanilla Cake Donuts
These donuts take no time to make, 20 minutes and you are eating donuts. Yummy soft, moist, baked Vanilla Cake Donuts.
Dipping them in a white chocolate ganache makes them just a little bit decadent or as the Nutella Queen said “Nutella”!!! But if you don’t like white chocolate or Nutella you can always substitute with a dark or milk chocolate ganache.
These Vanilla Cake Donuts are an easy and delicious Valentine’s day treat or any day treat for that matter. Enjoy!
