Red Velvet Baked Doughnuts



One of the most popular recipes on my blog is my Baked Doughnuts.  Without a doubt, every week, they are the most viewed recipes on Krissy’s Creations.  I think it’s because people like healthy desserts.  No matter how much you love the rich and decadent chocolate cake, it’s always nice to have some healthier dessert recipes when your looking for something a little lighter.


So, I have been making it a point to add some healthier recipes on this blog.  I already have the Healthy Chocolate Chip Cookies that I posted a few weeks ago, and now I’m adding a more festive baked good for Valentines Day – These Red Velvet Baked Doughnuts.

These doughnuts are made are made with yeast, milk, apple cider vinegar, and cocoa, creating a delicious, light, red-velvet-flavored doughnut.  And don’t worry if you don’t have a doughnut pan, no need for one in this recipe!


I finished the doughnuts off with a Cream Cheese Glaze.  All together the doughnuts were tangy, slightly sweet, and perfectly Red Velvet.  These would be the perfect start, or finish, to your Valentines Day.


Enjoy and have a HAPPY Valentines Day tomorrow!  For the recipe, click here.  





I’m sure some of you have noticed that I have been linking a few of my recipes back to a website called Celebrations.  I create recipes for this website and many of them I want to show you.  I will continue to share these recipes with you over time and hope that you don’t mind having to go over to the website to get the recipe.  Thanks :).

  15. I love doughnuts, but since they are usually deep fried I don't have them very often. Baking is such a great option!
