I have been getting a lot of use out of my donut pan lately.  So when I started to brainstorm Easter recipe ideas, a decorated baked donut seemed perfect.

A lightly sweetened baked chocolate donut.  Topped with extra sweet shredded coconut “grass”.  And most importantly, the candy eggs hidden in the grass.

This recipe does produce a mild chocolate flavored donut.  I wanted the donut to be more of a vessel for the sugary toppings.  If you prefer a sweet and chocolaty donut base, use this Baked Nutella Donut Recipe instead.

You will need a donut pan for this recipe.  Here is the donut pan that I use: {affiliate link}

I love the excitement on Easter morning.  The kids wake up early to see what little goodies have been left for them in a bright cheerful basket.

Then the chaos begins outside.  The kids running around in circles, squealing each time they discover a colored egg hiding in the bushes.

And these Easter Donuts will be the perfect addition to the silliness and fun.

Just looking at them makes me smile.  The kiddos will be smiling too!

  1. These are so adorable Nicole! A kids dream to wake up to donuts topped with candy! Actually, thats my dream too!

  2. These are the cutest little things ever. I just discovered the wonderfulness of a donut pan and can’t get enough! This post brought a huge smile to my face – the fact that we can now make Easter desserts means spring is just around the corner. Can’t wait and good thing I don’t have to wait to make these. Yum!

  3. I used to love Easter egg hunting when I was a kid! These donuts are so cute…. kids would absolutely love them!

    These are so cute! And look so easy! I don’t have a donut pan though, I just have a donut maker. Would this recipe work the same if I used the donut maker? Would I be able to pour this battle in the donut maker?

    • Nicole Harris says:

      Hi Chelsea! I wish I could give you a definite answer. But, I have no experience with donut makers whatsoever. I’m not sure if donut pan recipes work well in donut makers. If you have a donut recipe that you know works for your donut maker, you could follow that recipe and then decorate the donuts as I have in this post. Let me know if you do decide to try the recipe. I would love to know if it works in donut makers. Good Luck :D

  5. they are so cute!

  6. love, love, love pinned!

  7. Oh I love donuts and these look amazing. Chocolate donuts with chocolate eggs….that’s just double enjoyment :-)
