Candy Cane Cake Mix Donuts

Author Katie


  • 1 box cake mix
  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 cup canola oil
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 tsp . peppermint extract , optional
  • ICING:
  • 1 1/2 cups powdered sugar
  • 1 TBSP . melted butter
  • 2-4 TBSP milk


  • Mix together cake mix, egg, canola oil, water and peppermint extract until smooth. Pipe into a greased mini donut pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 7-10 minutes. Keep an eye on them. You may need to take them out sooner or keep them in longer.
  • While donuts are baking, mix together powdered sugar, melted butter and milk. I like to start with 2 tablespoons of milk and add more until I reach my desired consistency.
  • Crush 4-5 candy canes. Dip cooled mini donuts in icing and then in the crushed candy canes.
