Very Berry Baked Donuts

This very berry baked donut is really more a cupcake in donut form but I won’t tell on you if you eat it for breakfast.

Ok, before I get angry letters these are really more of a cupcake…shaped like a donut. I figure if I shaped them like a donut it would make them ok to eat for breakfast. Who’s with me?

Plus they are full of delicious fresh berry and vegetable juice. I know, vegetable juice. Don’t worry it’s not weird, I promise.

This was hands down the best berry flavored donut I have ever had. The best part was that they were naturally flavored with the fruit so you don’t get any of that weird artificial fruit flavor. I’m looking at you imitation extract.

Now, I didn’t just sit down and eat donuts all morning. I also finished off the bottle of juice. While I usually try to eat my fruit and vegetables it was nice to be able to drink them on the go. Plus I liked the fact the Naked juice wasn’t pumped with sugar.  I feel like that is a rarity in the commercially available juice department.

Also, while these donuts are fantastic served plain they are even better when drizzled with vanilla bean glaze. The choice is yours but I think you know the right desicion…

…the glaze.

Yield: 24 baked donuts

Prep Time: 15 minutes

Cook Time: 20 minutes

Total Time: 35 minutes


For donuts:
1 box white cake mix
1 cup Naked Power Garden Berry Veggie juice
3 large egg whites
1/4 cup vegetable oil

For glaze:
2 cups powdered sugar
1/4 cup heavy cream
2 teaspoons vanilla paste (or extract)


For donuts:
Preheat oven to 350 degrees and spray a 6 count donut pan with non-stick spray, set aside.

In the bowl to an electric mixer add cake mix, juice, egg whites and oil.

Mix on low for 30 seconds and then on medium for 1 minute. The mixture should me smooth and lump free.

Fill each donut cavity 2/3 full. Bake for 18-20 minutes until fully cooked and springs back when touched. Let the donuts cool in the pan for 1 minute, remove and let cool on a baking sheet.

Continue until all donuts have been made. If you only have one 6 count donut pan it will take 4 total rounds to cook all the donuts.

After donuts are cool dip or drizzle with glaze.

For glaze:
Add all ingredients to a medium sized bowl and stir till smooth.

*The donut measurements are based on what is called for on the box cake mix. If your cake mix requires different measurements that is fine. Follow those directions and replace the water with the Naked juice.

    I actually really love the naked brand. The sugar content still made me cringe a little when I looked at the back of the bottle but I guess since its naturally occurring its not that bad,.

    If it looks like a donut and is shaped like a donut, then it can be classified as a very delicious, mouth-watering donut! I’m game. 🙂

    I find naked juice very thick but using them in donuts is such a great idea 🙂

    These are definitely ok for breakfast in my book! Love that color, and I love that they are naturally flavored.

    That’s brilliant! Presumably you could do this with a cupcake as well.

    Donuts with juice in them? How cool and creative! They couldn’t be more perfect. Of course you have my vote!

    “Competitors” once again, I see 😉 These donuts look SO good! And I’m totally with you that making these “cupcakes” donut shaped makes it completely alright to devour many of them for breakfast. I would inhale them. These sound so good and I love how you used the Naked juice. So creative!

    Any time you can get some veggies in for breakfast and eat baked goods, I think you’re on the right track.
