These fluffy, tender Red Velvet Crumb Doughnuts are topped with a copious amount of crisp, brown butter crumble and a generous sprinkling of powdered sugar. With the perfect amount of cocoa in the recipe, these Red Velvet Crumb Doughnuts are a delicious Valentine’s Day treat!
These days red velvet cakes and cupcakes are everywhere. But when I was growing up, red velvet wasn’t nearly as common as it is now. Red velvet is actually a traditional recipe from the South. I think one of the first pop culture references to red velvet cake was in the movie Steel Magnolias. If you’ve ever seen that movie, you may recall that the groom’s cake was a red velvet cake in the shape of an armadillo.
Even thought I’m from the Midwest, I grew up eating the red velvet cake. Every summer my family and I would travel to South Carolina (Kiawah Island to be exact). We’d spend our days at the beach diving for sand dollars, and eating red velvet cake at the local town center.
With the proliferation of cupcake shops, red velvet is everywhere. While I love red velvet, I have to admit, I’ve had my share of bland red velvet cakes and cupcakes. But these Red Velvet Crumb Doughnuts are anything but tasteless.
These Red Velvet Crumb Doughnuts are made with buttermilk, and they prefect amount of vanilla and cocoa to make the fluffy, tender, and full of flavor. Yes, the cocoa doesn’t make them that bright red, but I still think they’re just as pretty. Plus, they are the perfect festive treat for Valentine’s Day!
