I immediately set to work on these red velvet baked donuts. They have butterscotch chips in them, which adds another dimension of flavour. I have seen these in UK supermarkets now, but if you can’t get hold of them fudge pieces would work well too. Plus this red velvet doesn’t have cocoa powder in it. I made a red velvet cake once with a Martha Stewart recipe, which didn’t use cocoa, and since then I prefer mines without. Plus it makes the colour inside super-red.
Making the batter for these I used the hand-held mixer. I had never used a hand-held mixer before and it was very nifty, but to be honest I prefer my electric mixer. If you don’t have an electric one though this is a great substitute and the whisks detach very easily to clean.
