I first shared this recipe over on my friend Christine’s blog. She is hosting a month-long Halloween extravaganza, and I was so excited to join in the fun. If you are looking for any Halloween food or craft ideas, she has you covered!

The base of this donut is just my standard baked donut, which is light and fluffy, and is the perfect vehicle for icing! The candy corn part of these candy corn donuts comes in the form of icing. There is no actual candy corn involved, just the icing decoration to make each donut look like a piece of candy corn! If you want to sprinkle your donuts with actual candy corn, I would not judge you in the slightest. It takes a bit of patience to ice these babies, but it is worth the effort, and I had fun doing it. If you have kids, they will love helping out.

Ingredients

    For the Donuts
  • 1 cup flour
  • 3/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • dash nutmeg
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 1/4 cup yogurt
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • For the Glaze
  • 1 1/2 cups powdered sugar
  • 2 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 2 tablespoons light corn syrup
  • 2-3 tablespoons heavy cream
  • dash salt
  • orange food coloring
  • yellow food coloring

Instructions

    For the Donuts
  1. Preheat oven to 325 degreesF. Grease two 6-cavity donut pans with nonstick cooking spray.
  2. In a small bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and nutmeg.
  3. In a medium bowl, whisk together the oil, sugar, egg, milk, yogurt, and vanilla until very well combined.
  4. Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and mix until just combined.
  5. Spoon the batter into the donut cavities, filling each one just over half full (this makes about 10 donuts). Bake the donuts for 8 - 10 minutes. Allow them to cool in the pan for a minute, then turn out onto a wire rack to cool completely.
  6. For the Glaze
  7. Whisk together powdered sugar, butter, cream, salt and 1 T heavy cream. Keep adding heavy cream until desired consistency is reached. Divide the glaze into three bowls. Keep one white, color one orange, and color one yellow.
  8. Once the donuts are cooled, spread the icing on the donuts in three stripes - white on the top, orange in the middle, and yellow on the bottom. Allow the glaze to set, then serve.

    Wow these doughnuts look amazing. I’ve never seen candy corn here in the UK but these doughnuts look so beautiful and so Autumnal in their colouring they deserved to be made and enjoyed. Thank you for such fantastic inspiration and a great doughnut recipe. Sammie

    What a fun way to get into the Halloween spirit! I’m not a big fan of actual candy corn, but I still love how its iconic color combination evokes fall memories, so this looks like just my kind of recipe.
