Gluten Free Raspberry and Coconut Cake Donuts Recipe

These gluten free donuts are the perfect excuse to have cake for breakfast! I added fresh lime zest and raspberries to a yellow cake mix and topped it with a sweet raspberry glaze and coconut shavings. The sticky sweet goodness is so much fun to make and devour!

Raspberries: 1 cup, halved

Step 3: Next, spray coconut oil onto a donut pan and fill your donuts half way. You can use an icing bag to avoid any overflow.

Step 4: Place halved raspberries on top of each of the donuts.
