SPOTTED ON SHELVES: Betty Crocker Krispy Kreme Doughnuts Cake Mix

Betty Crocker Krispy Kreme Doughnuts Cake Mix with Original Doughnut Glaze

Update: We reviewed it! Click here to read our review.

It’s probably the Krispy Kreme doughnut glaze that makes this special. The cake mix is most likely just standard Betty Crocker mix. I guess what I’m trying to say is that Krispy Kreme should just sell their doughnut glaze in squeezable bottles. (Spotted by Junk Food Dog at Meijer.)

    1. dont bother if youre looking for anything remotely close to tasting like a doughnut. very lemony.

    2. This cake is not worth it, it has some sort of banana flavoring to it. An odd texture to the batter, just odd. The icing is good, just a thick sugar icing. Harris Teeter carries it though in case you want to look for yourself.

    3. Please don’t waste your money. As much as We love Krispy Irene’s, this cake was horrible. It had a fake lemon taste that was putrid. So bad in fact, we both tried a piece and threw the rest away. Pretty nasty stuff.

  1. Hey where can you buy this cake mixes. Or can you please send me a free samples for your product I just love krispy doughnut

    1. Don’t bother. I made the cake, the smell is disgusting and not like any other smell. We glazed the cake, ate a bite and tossed it in the trash. Worst cake mix ever.

  2. Where can I get this cake mix at my daughter really want it for her birthday cake please help or can you send a free sample !! 🙂

  3. If I find it on a shelf anywhere, I will gladly take a pic… AFTER I buy them all are safe in my house

  4. We LOVED it. The cake does NOT taste lemony. The texture of the cake is very light. What gives the product the Krispy Kreme taste is the frosting. According to the website, it is being sold at WalMart. That is where we found it. Give it a try at least once. You will NOT be disappointed. Go in to the taste with an open mind and not a negative attitude.

  5. I saw this at Walmart and picked it up. The first thing I noticed is what a small cake it made. I used a Bundt pan. I took it to Sunday school and it was a big hit.

  6. My family loved it…It does have a different flavor. it reminded me of a cake donut. I want to buy it again but I am not able to find it anywhere now and I am kind of disappointed… I hate buying stuff then you can not find it every again… it was such a tease lol

  7. I just made this cake. I put it in a 12 cup bunt pan and it really is small. Haven’t tried it yet but if I ever make it again it will definitely be in a 9 inch bunt pan, tops.

  8. I found it back on Wal-Mart shelves (also found at Meijer in 2016) just yesterday. My husband says it is probably the best boxed cake he has had. I made a version just now, a pound cake. Cream 2 sticks room temp butter with 8 oz room temp cream cheese for 5 minutes, then add 3/4 cup sugar, cream for 2 minutes. Now, add total of 5 room temperature large eggs, one at a time. Lastly add 2 tsp vanilla and the cake mix (with an additional 1/4 cup AP flour, 1/2 tsp salt, 1/2 tsp baking powder and 1/4 tsp baking soda), dry ingredients added in thirds, scraping down sides in between. Beat on medium for 2 minutes. Greased/floured Bundt pan, preheated 350°F oven, 45-60 minutes (use cake tester method with knife or thin wooden skewer). I transferred the glaze to small sauce pan with 1/3 cup butter and heated that on low on stovetop, do not let it boil. Poked holes with a chopstick, halfway down cake, while still in hot cake pan….then drizzled warm glaze over the surface. Let cake cool completely in pan, on rack, and then invert on serving tray. Cover in plastic, let rest overnight (if you can hold out!) & enjoy. This is a hybrid of Cream Cheese Pound Cake and Kentucky Butter Cake. Delicious!!!

  9. I purchased 3 boxes because it was Krispy Kreme nobody liked it at all , the kids said it was terrible. I didn’t like it at all
