As an added bonus, with little effort and a simple plate, fiesta donuts amp up the look of any everyday platter.

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!
You are welcome because, after a few margaritas, the last thing you want is some grease mixed in (ugh!)
Now it is your turn to bake a batch of simple fiesta donuts.

Cinco de Mayo Fiesta Donuts: What You Need To Make them in your kitchen.
Each bite is satisfying and the secret is simply being baked, not fried.
To make fiesta donuts, all you need is a donut pan like my favorite pan.
I love this donut pan because it is nonstick and batch after batch never disappoints!
Food Coloring For Fiesta Donuts
What is a fiesta without color? BORING is the answer, so let’s AMP up the color and I’ll show you how!
Fiesta Icing Tips for Fiesta Donuts to Make the colors POP!
Plus, don’t forget to stir until you achieve the color you prefer!
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.
Flour & Fiesta Donuts
Unlike other recipes I have published, I have not changed up the flour type in this recipe. Instead, I stuck with basic all-purpose flour and it works well!
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
Not true. In fact, to save on sugar content, I use Stevia in mine, and in a previous trial of my recipe, I used Splenda yielding perfect results.
You do have to know how to convert Stevia from basic sugar to make this work though but that’s my sweetener of choice.
Fiesta Donuts From Bowl to Donut Pan with Less Mess
Keep preparation as simple as possible.
Once the batter is made, transfer it into a plastic bag, then you won’t have to battle a ladle, a spoon, or any other method to get the donut batter into the pan!
Why share this tip?
Because working with donut cavity pans can be a real PIA, but this makes it simple!
In other words, the transition from one container to the donut pan is fast! Just use Zippered Bags
Fiesta Donuts – One Last Note
Get the printable recipe below.
When the donuts come out, do not let them rest in the pan, reverse the pan and let them cool immediately on a cooling rack.
No more than 10 minutes, no less than 10 minutes.
Amp a Little Flavor
To create flavor in the Yellow icing, add lemon or orange flavoring extract.
Enjoy your Cinco de Mayo~ Dana XO
Cinco de Mayo Fiesta Donuts that are Colorful and Yummy!
Cinco de Mayo Fiesta Donuts
- 4 Tablespoons melted butter unsalted
- 1 Egg large
- 2 Teaspoons Vanilla Extract
- 1/2 C Milk
- 1/2 C Sugar
- Dash of Salt not more than 1/2 Teaspoon
- A Tsp Baking Powder
- One C All-Purpose Flour
- Preheat oven to 350° F
- Treat nonstick donut pans with spray or I used coconut oil brushed on each to release easily.
- In a large bowl mix eggs, milk, vanilla, and butter to combine.
- Using a separate bowl, combine salt, flour, baking powder, and 1/2 C of sugar.
- Pour the mixture into the wet ingredients.
- Combine, scraping the sides to ensure all ingredients are thoroughly mixed and included.
- Pour your batter into a zipped bag using a cup to secure the bag while filling.
- Zip bag, and cut a small snip on the corner of a bag.
- Carefully pipe filling into each donut caveat, not filling more than 3/4 (or you will have spillover)
- Bake each tray 8-10 minutes (in cooler ovens it will take 10 full minutes).
- Donuts will rise to the rim of the indent and will yield firmly to touch, nothing soft.
- Immediately transfer from pan to cooling rack.
- Really they should just pop on out!
- Allow donuts to cool before Icing.
