These Red Velvet Cake Donuts are the perfect way to celebrate St.Valentine’s day…or break your new year’s resolutions!
New Year’s Resolutions
Talking about resolutions, January is almost over, and I’ve realized I didn’t make any resolutions! Indeed, I don’t practice such a thing cause if you’d like to achieve something, you should just follow your plan not waiting for another year (It might sound cliche, but it’s a truth). And certainly, I don’t need to wait until January to start breaking them. It’s quite handy to do all this stuff 24/7 when needed.
But I probably should have made some. Just for a fun. What could they be?
Probably, the most popular resolution is healthy eating. Well, I don’t mind. The only one problem is that I eat pretty healthily. There might be some unhealthy stuff on this blog, but indeed that would be like only 15-20% of my food. I shoot stuff for the blog on weekends while throughout a week my meals are rather simple and healthy. And I’m not going to give up on having some forbidden treats on weekends because what’s the point?
Also, I might have promised to cut down on ice cream which is the main treat for me. It indeed belongs the essential grocery list. But why would I have done this? It’s wasting of life when you always limit yourself in little food pleasures. Besides, ice cream is the source of calcium and proteins, so it’s 100% healthy product.
It’s very common to promise more active life in a new year which is fantastic! However, I have enough activities in my life from the gym to walking. Not my case, sorry.
What else? Having more sleep! This is a good one. But could you explain how could follow this, please? Let me know, and I’ll consider it next time.
Alcohol. Of course, that would be a good thing to cut down on. Unfortunately (or fortunately) I have my drinks (either sparkling wine or cider) a few time per month so there’s nothing much I could do.
Okay, there’s one thing left. Cigarettes. Yes, I should have made the resolution to give up smoking. Wait. I do not smoke!
What’s wrong with me? I’m almost impeccable!:)
Okay, I know what I should have promised. Making more donuts this year! As some of you might remember two years ago I was having a donut kick. However, last year I wasn’t so active. The last donuts – these Bayley’s Cake Donuts – I posted last May. Did you hear that? 7 months, 7 long months.
I definitely need to catch up with this a little, right?
Red Velvet Cake Donuts
So I’m happily sharing these Red Velvet Cake Donuts with you. They could be a lovely Valentine’s treat.
While I’m not a fan of red velvet (The taste is too simple to me), there’s still something cozy in the combo of biscuit and cream cheese frosting. Also, red velvet stuff looks festive!
Although these Red Velvet Cake Donuts aren’t the most delicious ones I’ve baked, they were still good. I didn’t get the vivid red color cause I incorporated quite a lot of cocoa, but that’s fixable.
And importantly, Red Velvet Cake Donuts don’t require much of your time which is awesome. Because who wants to spend hours in the kitchen on Valentine’s day?
Do you like red velvet? Did you make any new year’s resolutions? How many have you broken so far?
