We all love donuts for breakfast, right? I have a super cute homemade donuts recipe to share with you! Seriously, they are super cute donuts that look like Eeyore! How cool is that?
Breakfast is my favorite meal of the day! It’s without a doubt the meal I tend to go all out on. Whether it’s a big old breakfast burrito or just a veggie omelet breakfast is a meal I don’t skip. Needless to say, I had a blast making and eating these super cute little donuts. I mean seriously, are they not the cutest donut you’ve ever seen?
Homemade donuts aren’t something you want to eat every morning, but they can make breakfast special. Especially when you have a Eeyore donuts recipe. Am I right?
Okay, so let’s stop all the small talk and get to talking about how to make these tasty super cute Eeyore donuts.
- 1 cup flour
- 1/3 cup sugar
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 2 tbsp unsalted sweet cream butter, melted
- 1 large egg
- 1/3 + 1 1/2 tbsp whole milk
- 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
- Vanilla Glaze:
- 1 cup powdered sugar
- 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
- 1/4 tsp kosher salt
- 4 tbsp whole milk
- Gel Food Coloring (Black)
- Cookie icing (Black)
- Fondant (Grey)
- Fondant (Red)
- Fondant (Pink)
- Fondant (Ivory)
- Fondant Mold Bow Tie Shaped
- 1/2 cup powdered sugar
- Paint brushes
- Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
- Prepare a donut pan by spraying it with cooking spray
- In a large bowl combine flour, baking powder, sugar and salt and whisk together.
- In a small mixing bowl and combine egg, butter, milk, vanilla and whisk together.
- Combine the dry and wet ingredients and mix until combined.
- Spoon the batter into your prepared donut pan and bake for 10 minutes.
- Remove from the oven, allow to cool for about 5 minutes before removing and placing donuts on a wire rack to finish cooling.
- Repeat the steps until the batter is gone.
- Using the grey fondant, pinch off about 2 - 1/2 tsp of fondant and roll into a ball and roll the ball in-between with your hands to form a long rounded piece. Next, using your fingers, lightly flatten the fondant log into a long flat piece of fondant. Set aside for later
- Pinch off about 2 - 1/8 tsp of pink fondant and roll the pink fondant into balls and then roll them into logs
- Flatten the logs into long flat pieces
- Lightly wet your fingers and brush them along the middle of your grey disks to leave a trail of water. The water will act as glue when you are working with the fondant. Carefully lay the pink flat piece onto the grey flat piece of fondant. Repeat steps for 29 more ears. You will need a total of 30 ears. Allow to sit harden while you make the glaze.
- In a large bowl combine the powdered sugar, vanilla, salt and milk and mix until combined. If the glaze has powdered sugar clumps, mix in another tbsp of milk.
- Mix in 1-2 drops of black coloring and mix until combined. You want to get a light grey shade.
- Make sure that your wire rack is on top of a larger cookie sheet so that when you pour the grey glaze onto the donuts, the glaze will not drip onto the counter.
- Allow the donuts to dry for 10 minutes, then carefully lift one of the ears up.
- Lightly get your finger wet and brush it on the edge of the top of the ear and carefully place the top of the ear on the side of the donut. Repeat steps with the other ear. Set aside while you mold your fondant bows.
- Using a small pointy paint brush, dip it into the powdered sugar and brush the powdered sugar into the fondant mold. Pinch off a piece of red fondant and push it into the mold. Allow the fondant to sit there for a few minutes before pushing the bow out of the mold. Repeat steps for 14 more bows.
- Lightly brush water onto the back of the bow and place the bow on to the bottom middle of the donut.
- Use the ivory colored fondant and repeat the steps that you did for the ears and carefully shape the ivory into a bean shape for the base of the mouth. Lightly wet the back of the ivory fondant piece and place onto the top middle of the donut.
- Using the black icing, pipe a line down the center of the donut. Pipe hair onto the top part of the donut, pipe stitches down the center of the donut, pipe a dot on both sides of the donut for the eyes, a line above the eyes for his eyebrows and a dot on the ivory fondant for the nose.
- Allow it to dry for an hour before enjoying these tasty homemade Eeyore Donuts!
