  1. Hi Kate! I saw this recipe on your Instagram and I couldn’t believe they’re just 3pp per 2 of them! They look delicious. 🙂

    I just had two questions… Since I’m from The Netherlands, we don’t have the same brands/ingredients as in the US. So I tried to Google the “2 Tbsp just egg whites” and learned that “just egg whites” is a brand of dried egg white powder, right? Or do you mean 2 Tbsp of egg whites, fresh from the egg? Because at the instructions you first say “Mix all of your dry ingredients together in a bowl.” and after that “Add in your egg whites”. So, if “just egg whites” are the dried egg white powder, shouldn’t I mix it with the other ingredients? Or do I add fresh egg white after the dry ingredients?

    Second questions: I don’t have a donut pan, can I use this dough also for cupcakes?

    Thanks so much for your help in advance, can’t wait to start baking this! 🙂

    Best, Yvonne.

      Hi there, just egg whites is like an egg beaters, we have cartons here in Canada and they are called just egg whites, its liquid egg whites, you can use the egg whites from an egg but I find that a lot of work 😉 also you could probably use a muffin tin, maybe a mini one would work best.. Happy baking 🙂

  2. Thx for your quick reply! So no dried egg white powder, but liquid egg white in a carton! I just Googled and we do have that in The Netherlands. Just not in the regular supermarkets, but I’ll find it. I agree, separating egg whites and yolk is horrible, so egg whites in a carton is a great “invention”! However, must not confuse this carton with the milk carton in the morning…. 😮

      Haha! No that would be a little yucky 😉 Glad you have them over there.. very jealous of where you live.. my husband and I have been to Amsterdam 3 times and love it over there 🙂

  3. I just tried them and they’re great! 🙂 Thanks so much for your help and I hope you’ll get to visit Amsterdam again soon! 🙂

  4. So yummy. I did not have white cake mix, I did have a box of Pineapple Upside down cake mix and used that as well as some orange zest because I didn’t have lemon zest. It turned out really good.

    Just made these! But I was curious as to whether these needed to be refrigerated or not? Thanks, love all your recipes!

  6. Hi Kate, where did you buy your doughnut pan?
    Your recipes look delicious!!

      Hi Mary, if your in Canada I know Micheal’s has them, in U.S try Bed Bath & beyond or even Target, also they can be ordered on Amazon 🙂 I use the Wilton 6 hole reg

  7. Hi! Is there a specific reason for the almond milk? This isn’t something I normally have on hand, would regular milk work as well, or is it for the flavoring?
    Thanks!

      No it’s just low on points or no points depending how much the recipe calls for, you can use reg milk that is fine 🙂

        Just bought that pan so have been looking for recipes and found your site. Yum, so is it regular flour or kodiak pancake mix? Cause the others or that mix, I have it. Or can I use it in place of flour. I don’t think I have flour lol.

        • Drizzle Reply

          These donuts call for flour, I think you can use kodiak as a substitute, hope you enjoy them 🙂

  8. My donut pan must be bigger than yours?! I was only able to make 3 donuts instead of 6. They were really good though. My picky son loved them! Thank you.

    • Drizzle Reply

      Oh wow that must be a big donut pan, min is a 6 hole Wilton pan, they are standard I think, unless you just made your super big 😉 Glad you both enjoyed them!

  9. I just seen this & was wondering, if I kept this as a base & then subbed the white cake mix for chocolate, no blueberries would it still work?

    Also is there a reason for just adding 3 tbsp cake mix? I know it’s high in points so maybe that’s why??

    • Drizzle Reply

      Hi Jennifer, yes it all comes down to points, and sure you can make those changes

    • Drizzle Reply

      Just add it as a quick add item or build and save the recipe

    Good evening. I just made the strawberry lemon donuts. They used flour, sugar, baking powder, Skim milk, and egg. This recipe calls for almond milk, and cake mix. The recipe you used for strawberry lemon donuts is our favorite. You think I could just put the blueberries in that batter instead of trying this recipe?

      Hi yes sure you can swap out for blueberries 🙂 I am glad you enjoy them
