Wreath Doughnuts

Baked vanilla doughnuts come with an extra helping of holiday cheer (i.e., frosting) in the form of festive wreaths!

Ingredients Doughnut Batter :

  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • 3 tbsp unsalted butter, melted
  • ¼ cup sugar
  • 2 tbsp honey
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/3 cup + 1 tbsp buttermilk
  • green food coloring

Ingredients Frosting :

  • 1 cup unsalted butter, room temperature
  • dash vanilla extract
  • 2 1/2 cups confectioner’s sugar
  • red and green food coloring
  • Holiday sprinkles

Instructions :

  • Whisk together the flour, baking powder and salt in a small bowl and set aside. In a large bowl, combine the butter, sugar, honey, egg and vanilla extract. Add the buttermilk and mix until combined. Add the dry ingredients and mix until just combined – make sure not to overmix. Dye the batter green with the food coloring.
  • Spoon the batter into a piping bag, then pipe the batter into a greased doughnut pan and bake at 400F for 7 minutes. Cool for 1 minute in the pan, then flip the pan over to remove the doughnuts and cool completely on a wire rack.
  • Beat the butter with an electric mixer at room temperature until light and fluffy. Add the vanilla extract and beat until combined. Add the confectioner’s sugar one cup at a time, then beat for 3 minutes, until fluffy. Dye ¼ cup of the frosting red and the remaining frosting green.
  • Place the red frosting into a piping bag fitted with a small, round piping tip. Place the green frosting into a piping bag fitted with a small, star-shaped piping tip.
  • Pipe the green frosting onto the doughnuts to look like pine needles and create a bow with the red frosting. Decorate with holiday sprinkles and enjoy!
