Baked Coffee Glazed Coffee Doughnuts

I was in the mood to bake something, but I didn't want to bake a cake or a batch of cookies. Then it hit me... When in doubt, doughnuttin'.

Baked Coffee Glazed Coffee Doughnuts
Makes 6

For the Doughnuts:
1 cup plain flour
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon ground cardamom
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup espresso, cooled
2 tablespoons sunflower oil
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
1 egg

For the Coffee Glaze:
1 cup icing sugar, sifted
1 - 2 tablespoons espresso, cooled

Make the Doughnuts:

Preheat the oven to 190C (375F) and spray a doughnut pan with cooking oil spray. Set aside.

Sift the flour into a large mixing bowl, Add the brown sugar, baking powder, ground cardamom and salt and mix thoroughly.

In a separate bowl, mix the espresso, oil, vanilla and egg.

Make a well in the dry ingredients and pour in the espresso mixture. Whisk to combine.

Pour the batter into the prepared pan, filling the wells two-thirds full.

Bake the doughnuts for about 10-12 minutes, until they spring back when touched lightly.

Cool them in the pan for about 5 minutes before transferring them to a wire rack to cool completely.

Make the Glaze:
Put the icing sugar into a mixing bowl and add enough espresso to create a thick glaze. Dip the tops of each cooled doughnut into the glaze and place them on a wire rack over a baking sheet to catch the drips.


  1. I should use my doughtnut mold more often. It's just there, looking at me when I open my the door of my cupboard where everything for pastry stuff are. If it's flavoured with coffee...yum :)

  2. Coffee in the doughnuts. Of course. Why have coffee and doughnuts when you can put the caffeine into a sweet, carby vehicle and glaze it with even more deliciousness. Sign me up for some of that doughnuttin' goodness.

  3. Glazed is my fave, but a coffee glaze takes it to a whole new level.

  4. I do not own a doughnut mold but suddently, I wish I had one.

  5. The combination is perfect, my favorite is the glaze with coffee. thanks
