Wreath Doughnuts

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


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


  1. 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.
  2. 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.
