We Tried Krispy Kreme Doughnuts Cake Mix with Original Doughnut Glaze… and It Was Amazing

February 18, 2016 | By | Comments (7)

Breakfast will never be the same. You used to wake up, see if it was too late for a drive-through, contemplate whether the Hot & Ready sign was up, and weigh whether it was worth it to get out of bed.

Now, you can make Krispy Kremes from the comfort of your home. Thanks to Betty Crocker, this boxed cake mix calls for just eggs, water, and oil, and allows you to whip up cakes, loaf bread, muffins, or cookies. Our suggestion? Break out your doughnut pan and make (dare we say it), healthier versions of your favorite breakfast indulgence. After all, while they are topped with that heavenly glaze, they’re baked, not fried.


We baked a batch this morning and, true to the original, they were best when piping hot. The glaze comes premade, so just drizzle the desired amount on the piping hot cupcake, cake, cookie, or doughnut and go to town.


Pair these with any savory breakfast menu for a special treat.

      Right now it’s available in some supermarkets and expected to arrive in more soon, but you can also find it online, for example on Amazon.

      @Marc A little went a long way. They give you A LOT of glaze too. Krispy Kreme definitely knows their audience!

    We bought ours at the local WalMart. I give it two thumbs up. I liked it because the cake wasn’t overly sweet and the frosting did taste like Krispy Kreme. Yes, the frosting is thicker so you don’t need a lot on each portion.
