Were you missing the 90s but still thinking they needed an update? Did you think that Little Debbies snacks could only come in pre-defined shapes inside plastic packaging? Did you think your childhood couldn't be combined with ridiculous trends that you joke are "OVER" but are still secretly eat at home, you dirty hipster, you? Y'all, don't you fret — because you can have your trendy Zebra Cakes and eat them, too.
We're all about putting things we love with other ridiculous things we love — you know, like Dunkaroo Pop Tarts. And you may know about our obsession with donuts — because not only are they cute as hell, but also because they are delicious sugar frosting on top of cakes that explode awesomeness into your mouth.
For my birthday, Theresa so sweetly bought me a donut pan. I was highly skeptical of these baked donut treats at first (donuts are obviously meant to be fried, not baked) and my first batch was a bit of a let down. But apparently when you take cake mix and then throw two layers of chocolate on it with a layer of frosting inside, it basically removes any semblance of the healthiness that being baked brings with it. So, Zebra Cake donuts have brought me back on the baked donut train.
These suckers were actually surprisingly easy to make. I mean, it involves cake mix, for crying out loud. Obviously, yes, you can show off and use homemade yellow cake, but almond bark is an ingredient, which nixes any of your fanciness, so just lean into the half-homemade side, please.
And GO NUTS WITH THESE DONUTS!
