What exactly are Cinco de Mayo Fiesta Donuts?
Donuts that are brilliantly colored with festive icing and sprinkles!
Just plain good is a set of words I might use to describe my interesting take on fiesta donuts.
Fiesta donuts look great on a party plate and travel well too!
Because there are a lot of great foods to eat during a Cinco de Mayo celebration I baked these donuts to keep your stomach without greasy fry oil!
Now it is your turn to bake a batch of simple fiesta donuts.
Taste-tested through and through at Casa Vento, we offer you the opportunity not to create your own donut fiesta using our recipe.
Cinco de Mayo Fiesta Donuts
Satisfying from the first bite, and the secret is simply being baked, not fried.
In fact, grease may initially make any donut taste better, but as time wears on, it does not make your belly feel better.
Additionally, before baking donuts, you will need a donut pan.
I chose a Norpro donut pan .
In short, I chose the donut pan I did because it is nonstick and I keep raving about it.
It’s just a basic doughnut pan, and it never does my recipes wrong!
Food Coloring For Fiesta Donuts
Along with the easy donut recipe, you will need festive icing.
Food coloring is your key element to success.
Remember, food coloring needs to be made in its own bowls if you want different colors.
Also, stirring is imperative when you mix up the color.
In short, color makes the donut pop and helps you theme any party.
For that reason, if you love this donut recipe and you want to use it for a different theme, change the icing color.
Unlike other recipes I have published, I have not played with the flour.
Plain and simple, I’ve just used all-purpose flour.
I do want to try oatmeal flour and eventually almond flour, but I do believe the texture will greatly change.
So, milk can be any kind of milk you choose from Full Fat (Vitamin D) to Skim Milk and everything in between.
In fact, I just use whatever milk I have available.
Therefore I know that any kind of milk works!
Sugar For Fiesta Donuts
By contrast to normal recipes, you might think that subbing in Stevia or Splenda may not work.
In fact, to save on sugar content, I use Stevia in mine.
Also, I’ve used Splenda too.
Each offers great results.
You do have to know how to work with Stevia to make this work though but that’s my sweetener of choice.
Make Fiesta Donuts Much Easier – From Bowl to Donut Pan
Let me keep this real for you.
At its core, this recipe could be a big old mess when you go to fill the individual donut cavities.
Don’t use a spoon, it makes an absolute mess.
I’ve tried a ladle, and I discourage that as well.
Filling up a normal squeeze bottle is just another PIA step, skip it.
As a result, my donut batter to pan time is faster and cleaner.
In other words, the transition from one container to the donut pan is fast!
To that end, just get a large cup you would drink out of ( I suggest glass, not plastic, tipping factor here).
Open the zip bag, and put it over the exterior of the glass, leaving the middle wide-open for filling.
Take your batter bowl, and fill it up.
Push all the contents to the lower portion of the bag before sealing.
In the one corner simply cut a slit (not too large, cut smaller to get a feel for this method, you can always go bigger, but you can’t go smaller!)
Fill each donut opening by squeezing the bag.
It’s so easy.
When the bag is empty toss it out!

When the donuts come out, do not let them rest in the pan, reverse the pan and let the cool immediately on a cooling rack.
