Description

A tender, buttery, vanilla cake doughnut enveloped by toasted coconut.. Who could ask for more?

Ingredients

  • ⅔ cups Sugar
  • 4 Tablespoons Butter
  • 1 whole Large Egg
  • 1-¾ cup All-purpose Flour
  • ½ teaspoons Baking Soda
  • ¼ teaspoons Salt
  • ¾ cups Buttermilk Or Sour Milk
  • 1 teaspoon Vanilla Extract
  • 1-½ cup Sweetened Shredded Coconut, Toasted
  • 1 cup Pwdered Sugar
  • 1 Tablespoon Water

Preparation

Preheat oven to 325°F. Lightly grease a mini muffin or mini doughnut pan with cooking spray or vegetable shortening.

In a large bowl, beat together sugar and butter till creamy. Add egg and mix.

In a small bowl, whisk together flour, baking soda and salt. Pour egg mixture and stir to combine. Pour in buttermilk and vanilla extract.

Divide batter evenly into muffing/doughnut cups, filling each about 3/4 full. Bake for 8–9 minutes, until tops are dry and spring back when lightly touched. A toothpick inserted into the center should come out clean to test for doneness.

Remove doughnuts from the pan and cool on a wire rack.

Put sweetened coconut in a single layer on a baking sheet. Bake at 350°F for 4-5 minutes, watching closely, as they can burn quickly.

Pulse toasted coconut in a food processor till fine, but not powdery.

Mix powdered sugar and water to create a watery glaze. Quickly and completely dip doughnuts into the glaze, letting the excess drip off.

Dip all sides into coconut mixture.

Enjoy!

Ladies, you are welcome! Have a mini muffin pan? This recipe will work in a pinch; however, I’m smitten by the cuteness of a mini doughnut….

This is the only recipe that has made me think I just might need to purchase a doughnut pan! You also just gave me a serious craving for brisket on Kaiser roll! Skilz!

So I went out and purchased a mini doughnut pan after I spotted this recipe…glad I did! These were great and so easy to make. (I subbed and used whole wheat flour – still delish) :)
