Making donuts is a super fun project! These donuts are glazed with tiramisu flavored frosting and hit the spot with a cup of coffee.


For the donuts:

  • 1/2 cup milk warmed
  • 1 1/2 tsp active dry yeast
  • 4 tablespoons sugar
  • 2 1/2 cups AP flour + more for dusting
  • 1/2 tsp kosher salt
  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract

For the glaze:

  • 1/2 cup mascarpone 
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 3 tablespoons powdered sugar
  • 2 tablespoons coffee or espresso
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1/2 cup chocolate sprinkles and crushed espresso beans for garnish


  1. In a bowl, mix together 2 1/2 cups of flour, cinnamon and salt.
  2. In a separate bowl combine warm milk, sugar, and yeast and allow to rest for 5-1o minutes until foamy. Add egg and vanilla and stir to combine.
  3. Add yeast ingredients into flour mixture and stir to combine.
  4. Knead for 5 minutes by hand or 3 minutes in a stand mixer and use more flour if needed.
  5. Add butter and knead another couple of minutes until dough is soft and slightly sticky.
  6. Place dough in a lightly oiled bowl. Cover with plastic wrap and allow to rise for 2 hours until double in size.
  7. Transfer to a floured work surface and roll out to about 1/4 inch thick.
  8. Cut donuts using a cookie cutter (or a glass) about 3 inches around. Make a 1/2 inch hole in the center of each. 
  9. Transfer the donuts to a lined sheet tray. Cover donuts with a damp towel or plastic wrap and let proof in the fridge for an hour.
  10. Using a deep frying pan or dutch oven, heat oil to about 350 F. (Use a donut hole to do a test batch).
  11. Cook donuts a few at a time but do not overcrowd frying pan. They should float and turn golden brown. You may need to flip them over to cook both sides.
  12. Let donuts cool on a wire rack lined with paper towels.
  13. To make the glaze, combine mascarpone and cream together with a whisk. Add powdered sugar and mix until well combined. Finally, add coffee or espresso and vanilla extract.
  14. The glaze should be thick, you may need to add a little more cream until you get the desired consistency.
  15. When the donuts have cooled, dunk one side of each donut into the glaze. Allow the glaze to set before dunking in sprinkles and optional espresso beans.
