"Red" Velvet Donuts...

They're definitely donuts...just not so red. 

This morning I took out my donut pan so I could finally try this deliciously tempting red velvet donut recipe. I followed the recipe exactly, but for some reason, the donuts didn't turn red from the food coloring. Oh well..they were still fun to make! More fun than making cupcakes, I think.

The batter was really thick and I had to use a pastry bag to put it in the pan. I thought the red might suddenly appear after baking...*wishful thinking*.

Mmm! Yummy vanilla glaze.

I don't know why, but I enjoy baking even more on Saturday mornings. It's nice to be able to slow down, take my time, and sample my mistakes. ;-)
