Pina Colada Donut

What's today folks?  It's the 12th and that means 12 bloggers, 12 recipes with 12 ingredients or less!  And yes, and this month was donuts!  I think you will be really wowed with what the other gals came up with this month.  Since I'm hoping for winter to be over, I went with this tropical delight - Pina Colada.  If I can't be sitting on the beach with the drink, I sure can be eating one of these donuts with my coffee and dream.  Right?  Maybe play a little Jimmy Buffet....

Pineapple and coconut are one of my favorite flavor combos - so fresh and light.  These donuts will be pleasing to your palate and would be perfect for a brunch or breakfast you might be hosting.  Make extra because they will disappear fast!

Pina Colada Donuts

by Cooking on the Front Burner
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 11-13 minutes
Yield 6 donuts
Recipe inspiration from Baker By Nature
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup coconut milk
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil (Melted)
  • 1/4 cup crushed pineapple (undrained)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 6 tablespoons soft butter
  • 1 1/2 cup powdered sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons coconut milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • Garnish - cherries, coconut and pineapple chunks
  1. Preheat oven to 350 then spray a donut pan with nonstick spray (like PAM)
  2. Whisk the flour, baking powder, 1/4 tsp salt and sugar in a medium bowl
  3. Whisk the coconut milk, coconut oil, pineapple and 1 tsp vanilla extract in a small bowl
  4. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry; keep mixing until is well combined
  5. Place batter in each donut mold (about 2/3 full) - it might be easier to use a large baggie with the corner cut off and squeeze in
  6. Bake 11-13 minutes or until donuts spring back lightly when touched
  7. Cool for 5 minutes on wire rack then remove donuts and cool completely
  8. Make buttercream by beating butter until smooth then add powdered sugar and salt and mix well
  9. Add coconut milk and vanilla next and mix well
  10. Frost donuts - if frosting is too thin, add more powdered sugar
  11. Top with garnish if desired
