    Things To Grab

    • 2 (6-unit each) donut pans
    • Hy-Vee nonstick baking spray
    • Stand mixer with paddle attachment
    • Wooden toothpick
    • Wire cooling rack
    • Medium bowl
    • Electric mixer


    1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray 2 (6-unit each) donut pans with nonstick baking spray; set aside.

    2. Add cake mix to a stand mixer fitted with a paddle attachment. Beat in wine, vegetable oil, egg whites, almond extract, and pink or red food coloring, if desired, over low speed until just combined. Beat at medium speed for 2 to 3 minutes.

    3. Place about 1/4 cup cake batter into each donut well. Bake for 13 to 16 minutes, or until toothpick inserted into center comes out clean. Remove from oven and cool 10 minutes on a wire cooling rack. Run knife around edges of donuts and gently remove from pan; cool completely, about 2 hours.

    4. Make Rose Glaze: Add powdered sugar and butter to a medium bowl. Beat with an electric mixer until combined. Slowly add 3 to 4 tablespoons rose to reach desired dipping consistency.

    5. Dip cooled donuts into glaze allowing excess to drip off donut. Place on a wire cooling rack and garnish dipped donuts with desired garnishes. Allow glaze to set at room temperature before serving.
