Toasted Coconut Donut Holes

  • 3/4 Cup all purpose flour not packed
  • 3/4 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 Tbls unsalted butter melted
  • 1 egg room temp
  • 1 tsp vanilla bean paste or extract
  • 1/4 Cup granulated sugar
  • 1/4 Cup milk
  • 1/8 Cup toasted coconut

Vanilla Glaze

  • 1 3/4 Cup powdered sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/4 Cup milk
  • plus more coconut for garnish


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Mix the flour with the baking powder and salt in a medium sized bowl.
  • In a separate bowl, mix in the cooled melted butter with the vanilla and egg. Whisk in the sugar and milk until combined.
  • Add wet mixture to dry and mix until there are no dry lumps. Fold in the coconut.
  • Fill greased mini muffin tin half way up. Bake for 6-7 minutes until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Turn out onto a wired rack to cool.

Vanilla Glaze

  • While donuts are cooling, make the glaze by whisking the powdered sugar, vanilla and milk together until smooth and runny.
  • Using two fork or your fingers, dip each donut hole. I dipped each one twice, there was just enough glaze. Immediately after the second dunking, top with either more toasted coconut or plain shredded coconut. Serve and enjoy!
