I've been making Cookie Butter and Cocoa Swirl Cookies and Cookie Butter Pound Cake, but I wanted to get away from Cookie Butter for a while and try some other things Trader Joe's has to offer! So, Trader Joe's Glazed Cinnamon Crumb Coffee Cake Doughnuts were born. These were delicious and so easy to make! I wasn't sure how a boxed cake mix would work, but these doughnuts didn't taste or feel like a doughnuts shaped cake. The glazed helped give the doughnuts a bite and more of a doughnut feels. And, I think the cinnamon crumb also added a dimension. I will just say, I ate four immediately after taking these photos, which means my husband only got two. He's lucky even even got two! I will definitely be making these again.
Trader Joe's Cinnamon Crumb Coffee Cake Doughnuts(Makes 6 Doughnuts) Ingredients:
- 1 box Trader Joe's Cinnamon Crumb Coffee Cake Mix
- 1 1/2 cup cake mix
- 1/2 cup crumb mix
- 1/3 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk (can substitute Soy milk or regular milk)
- 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
- 1 egg
- 1 tablespoon butter
- 1 1/2 cup confectioners sugar
- 3-4 tablespoons unsweetened vanilla almond milk (can substitute Soy milk or regular milk)
- Preheat the oven to 350 F.
- In a medium bowl mix the cake mix (not the crumb mix), milk, vegetable oil, and egg until combined.
- In a small bowl, melt the butter. Using a fork, mix the crumb mix and butter. This will be lumpy, that's okay.
- Grease a doughnut pan. I used Trader Joe's coconut oil spray.
- Pour the cake mixture into a ziplock bag and cut the corner of the bag to make a homemade pastry bag.
- Pipe a thin layer of cake batter into each section of the doughnut pan. Then add a layer of the crumb mixture followed by another layer of cake batter. Do not fill to the brim or overfill because these will rise like cake.
- Place in oven and bake for about 18 minutes. Doughnuts will not brown, but do the toothpick test to ensure they are done.
- While doughnuts are in the oven, mix the confectioner's sugar and milk in a medium sized bowl.
- After removing doughnuts from the oven, place on cooling rack.
- When doughnuts are cooled enough to handle, but not completely cool dip each each side of the doughnut in the glaze mixture. I coated each doughnut twice. Place on cooling rack to cool and excess glaze to drip off.
Hi, I'm Mary and I blog over at Gold Layer Cake! I love to make desserts because I have a huge sweet tooth. I was so excited with Natasha asked me to contribute recipes to Trader Joe's List! I had never even been to a Trader Joe's until my recent move to Phoenix, Arizona, but I am now obsessed!
