Tasty Tuesday Baked Red Velvet Donuts & Recipe Link Up

Hi friends and welcome to another Tasty Tuesday!  I'm so glad you're here!

Spoiling my man is one of my favorite things ever for 3 reasons:
1.)  I'm still crazy about him.
2.) When he gets happy or excited about something, the world knows it-he's intense.  So fun.
3.)  He is the easiest to please-it does not take much.

So simple things like surprising him with a special sweet treat when he wakes up is just the best.  These red velvet donuts are perfect for a special but easy Valentines Day treat for your loved one-or yourself!!  

Here's what you'll need:

1/2 cup buttermilk
1/2 cup plus 2 Tablespoons vegetable oil
1 egg
3/4 cup sugar
1 1/4 cup flour
1 teaspoon cocoa powder
1 Tablespoon red food coloring
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 teaspoon vinegar
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon baking soda

Simply mix all the ingredients together.  I find it easiest to stir together the dry then add in everything else, but it's not a must.  It will be smooth and beautifully bright red!

Next take your donut pan and spray the heck out of it with cooking spray.  Then take a Ziploc bag and cut a tiny hole in one of the bottom corners and pour in your batter.  Use this to fill the donut pan about 1/2 way to 3/4 full.  It will look neon and fluorescent against the donut pan.  Don't worry you won't start glowing when you eat these.

Pop these into a 350 degree oven for 10-12 minutes.  If you are using a mini donut pan then bake for about 5-7 minutes.

When they come out of the oven begin devouring them hot just like they are.  You could also sprinkle some powdered sugar on top, make a cream cheese frosting, or make a simple powdered sugar glaze and then devour them...

If you're feeling really fancy drizzle some delicious thick chocolate on top.  
Yes please!
