Birthday cake donuts are my favourite flavour of all time. These donuts are perfect for that special someone’s birthday. Top them with any color icing you please. You won’t be able to just eat one.


Birthday Donuts

1 cup (120 g) all-purpose flour 

1 teaspoon baking powder

 1/4 teaspoon baking soda 

 1/4 teaspoon salt 

 1/4 cup (50 g) granulated sugar

 1 Tablespoon (13 g) brown sugar

1/4 cup (60 ml) milk 

 1/4 cup (60 g) Greek yogurt 

 1 large egg 

 2 Tablespoons (30 g) unsalted butter, melted

 1 and 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract

1/2 cup of sprinkles


Preheat the oven to 350F. Spray a donut pan with non-stick spray. Set aside.

In a medium bowl, whisk the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, nutmeg, granulated sugar and brown sugar. Set aside.

In a large bowl, whisk the milk, yogurt, and egg together until smooth, about 1 minute. Add the melted butter and vanilla, and whisk until combined.

Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and stir just until combined. Do not to over mix (the batter will be thick). Fold in the sprinkles very gently so the colors don’t bleed.

Transfer the batter to a frosting bag with a regular tip (or into a plastic zipped-top baggie with the corner cut off) and pipe batter into each donut cup until 3/4 full. Alternatively, use a spoon to transfer batter into the donut cups.

Bake for 8–10 minutes or until the edges are golden. Allow the donuts to cool for two minutes in the pan and then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.
