Homemade Coconut Mini Donuts

So this week, we’re getting ready to move, and I just don’t have time to get posts together. Luckily, I have some amazing blogger friends who have graciously volunteered to write some guest posts for me. You are in for a treat — I’ve got some amazing tips and recipes coming right atcha. Be sure to go check out these lovely ladies’ blogs while you are at it. 

Hey, y’all! I’m Susan from Adventures in my Kitchen! I’m happy to be helping Katie out by guest posting today, I think you’re gonna love this recipe! Homemade Coconut Mini Donuts!

I am a coconut nut! I love everything coconut. Coconut water, coconut milk, coffee creamer, candy, all of it! It’s especially delicious now that summer is approaching! Coconut Mini Donuts are great for breakfast, brunch, or dessert! Bring them to a picnic or family reunion this summer! Although coconut is very good for you, these babies aren’t exactly a “health food”…bummer. But the mini size helps, and they’re baked, not fried! Win!

Thanks again to Katie for having me–hope y’all will come join the Adventures in my Kitchen!

Homemade Coconut Mini Donuts
Homemade Coconut Mini Donuts
Makes aprx 24 mini donuts
2 cups all purpose flour
3/4 cup white sugar
2 teasp baking powder
1 teasp salt
3/4 cup buttermilk (no, I don’t keep this in my fridge, I made it. yea, I’m fancy)
2 beaten eggs
2 tablespoons melted butter
2 teaspoons coconut extract
Preheat oven to 375*.
Spray mini donut pan(s) with non-stick spray.
In one bowl, combine flour, sugar, baking powder & salt. Combine well. Add buttermilk, eggs, melted butter, & extract. Beat with mixer on medium until well combined. Fill donut cups about 1/2 full–I suggest piping them with a pastry bag or ziplock with the a corner cut.
Bake for 5-10 mins or until puffed up and tops spring back when lightly touched. Remove to a wire cooling rack–once donuts have cooled, make the glaze.
Glaze & Topping:
1.5 cups powdered sugar
1/4 teasp salt
1/4 teasp coconut extract
1/4 cup coconut water
1 cup of unsweetened shredded coconut
Mix all ingredients except the shredded coconut until combined. Let sit for a few minutes to thicken up a little bit. Place shredded coconut on a plate for dipping.
After donuts have cooled, dip the entire donut in the glaze and then roll completely in the shredded coconut.
