I love making baked doughnuts, they are so quick and easy. Less fussy than frying, and so much more delicious, too. These doughnuts are cakey and moist, and deliciously spiced with cinnamon, ginger, and nutmeg. The brown sugar, buttermilk, and the little bit of oil are what makes these so moist.

The doughnuts look extra pretty dipped in the beautiful pink glaze. This glaze is just perfect. Just the right thickness to create a nice layer on the doughnuts, and has a wonderful vanilla flavour. Sprinkle with crushed Mini Eggs to makes these doughnuts extra extra pretty, and give them a delicious crunch!

    For the Doughnuts
  • 2 cups (250g) plain flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/2 cup (100g) light brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup (120ml) buttermilk
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • For the Glaze
  • 1 1/2 cups (187g) icing sugar
  • 3 tablespoons (42g) unsalted butter, melted
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 tablespoons milk
  • 1/4 teaspoon pink food colouring (I used Sugarflair Spectral Concentrated Paste in Pink)
  • 1 x 90g bag crushed Cadbury Mini Eggs


    For the Doughnuts
  1. Preheat the oven to 180C/350F/Gas 4. Spray or butter a doughnut pan, and set aside.
  2. Whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, ginger, and nutmeg. Set aside.
  3. Whisk together the egg, sugar, and buttermilk until combined and smooth. Add the vegetable oil and vanilla extract, and mix until combined.
  4. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients, and mix until just combined. Do not over-mix. Spoon the batter into the prepared doughnut pan, and bake for 8 - 10 minutes, or until the edges are lightly browned. Allow to cool in the pan for 5 minutes before transferring them to a wire rack to cool completely.
  5. For the Glaze
  6. Whisk together the icing sugar, melted butter, vanilla extract, milk, and pink food colouring until smooth. Add more milk if the glaze is too thick. Dip each doughnut into the glaze, place back onto the wire rack, sprinkle with crushed Mini Eggs, and allow to set.

  1. These are so, so cute! I love the idea of using mini chocolate eggs to make them Easter-themed and give them a slightly different texture. Cadbury eggs are my favorite Easter candy and putting them on donuts is genius!

  2. Marsha, these easter donuts look so scrumptious! I’ve loved them since the moment I saw them on Pinterest. <3 Btw, I totally agree that baked doughnuts are so much less fussy than fried donuts (the mess, the oil!). Love that you also topped these with crushed Cadbury mini eggs. 🙂
