How To Make Pink Party Donuts - Step-by-Step


- 1 and 1/4 cups all-purpose flour

- 1/2 cup granulated sugar

- 1 and 1/4 teaspoons baking powder

- 1/2 teaspoon salt

- 1/2 cup milk

- 1/4 cup plain yogurt (Greek or regular)

- 1 large egg, room temperature

- 2 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted

- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

- Pink gel food coloring (adjust to your preferred shade)

For the Glaze:

- 1 cup confectioners' sugar

- 2-3 tablespoons milk or heavy cream

- 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

- Pink gel food coloring


1. Prepare Your Donut Pan:

- Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Grease a standard donut pan with non-stick spray or butter.

2. Mix the Dry Ingredients:

- In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the all-purpose flour, granulated sugar, baking powder, and salt.

3. Combine the Wet Ingredients:

- In a separate bowl, whisk together the milk, plain yogurt, egg, melted butter, and vanilla extract until smooth.

4. Mix Wet and Dry Together:

- Gently fold the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients, stirring just until combined. Be careful not to overmix; a few lumps are absolutely fine!

5. Add the Pink Hue:

- Now comes the fun part! Add pink gel food coloring to the batter until you achieve your desired shade of pink. Remember, pastel pink or vibrant pink - it's your party, so go with what makes you happy!

6. Fill the Donut Pan:

- Transfer the pink batter into a piping bag or a Ziploc bag with the corner snipped off. Pipe the batter into the prepared donut pan, filling each cavity about two-thirds full.

7. Bake to Perfection:

- Pop the donut pan into the preheated oven and bake for 10-12 minutes or until the donuts are light golden brown and spring back when touched.

8. Prepare the Glaze:

- While the donuts are cooling, prepare the glaze. In a small bowl, whisk together the confectioners' sugar, milk (or heavy cream), vanilla extract, and pink gel food coloring until smooth and glossy.

9. Glaze the Donuts:

- Once the donuts are completely cooled, dip the tops into the pink glaze, allowing any excess to drip off. You can also drizzle the glaze over the donuts if you prefer a different look.

10. It's Party Time!

- Your Pink Party Donuts are now ready to dazzle your guests and elevate any celebration! Arrange them on a serving platter, and watch everyone's faces light up with joy.

These Pink Party Donuts are the ultimate treat for birthday parties, bridal showers, or any special occasion that calls for a pop of color and a whole lot of sweetness. The soft and tender texture combined with the delightful pink glaze will have everyone coming back for seconds.

So, put on your apron and get ready to create some picture-perfect Pink Party Donuts that are sure to be the highlight of your next gathering. Happy baking and happy partying, my friends! 🍩💕
