Cute little one-bite baked donuts, perfect for portion control (unless you eat 8), but less guilt-ridden than fried!
It’s February! Which means bring out all the red food coloring, dig out your Valentine’s day decor (haha – yeah, okay – so I don’t decorate for Valentine’s Day – but you might), and get baking some sweet treats (like these mini donuts) for the ones you love. Love it or not, Valentine’s day is awesome.
I particularly love February 15th, because all the chocolate is 75% off…. These mini baked donuts are the perfect one-bite treat and are super cute. Make a bunch of them and give them away, or eat the entire batch yourself while watching old movies alone, in the dark. I’m not judging.

HOW TO MAKE MINI DONUTS
Full, printable recipe below – just scroll down to the recipe card!
- Preheat the oven and grab your stand mixer.
- Combine the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt (dry ingredients) in a large bowl (or bowl of your stand mixer) and mix.
- To the flour mixture add in the wet ingredients (buttermilk, egg and melted butter) and mix until JUST combined.
- Pour the batter into a piping bag, spray the donut pan and fill each cup about halfway (don’t overfill – they will rise during baking and you definitely want to see holes!)
- Bake for 6 minutes, then cool in the ban for a few minutes – and transfer to a wire rack to cool.
- Make the glaze (powdered sugar, milk and raspberry or vanilla extract) and dip the cooled donuts in and set back on the wire rack. Go nuts with sprinkles.

- Preheat oven to 425.
- In the bowl of your stand mixer, mix together flour, sugar, baking powder and salt.
- Add buttermilk, egg, and butter, and mix until JUST combined.
- Pour batter into a piping bag or ziplock with the corner cut out, and fill each donut cup 1/2 full. Don’t get crazy about this – the batter will rise quite a bit during baking, and you do want holes! (Overfilling just makes the hole close up)
- Bake 6 minutes or until the top of the donut springs back when touched.
- Cool in pan for 1-2 minutes, then transfer to a cooling rack.
- Combine all ingredients and mix until sugar is dissolved. Mixture will be runny.
- Dip cooled donuts in and set on cooling rack for 5-10 minutes.
- Re-dip and sprinkle your chosen decorations on top, and let dry.
