Yes, more Guinness and more donuts!

I have really been getting some use out of my donut pan lately.

I bought a six pack of Guinness for a Saint Patrick’s Day recipe.  Well, I don’t drink so I have to use up the remaining Guinness in more recipes.  I’m finding that Guinness is really great to use in recipes.  It certainly has a very distinct and complex flavor.

And a little Guinness goes a long way!

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

These donuts do have a mild Guinness flavor.  The beer really makes these baked donuts fluff up nicely.

If you don’t have any Guinness handy.  Just use this Baked Vanilla Donut Recipe and the Irish Cream Glaze.

Irish Cream Liqueur is the star of this donut recipe.  These creamy, boozy donuts are perfect along side a hot cup of coffee!

    • Nicole Harris says:

      lol, I have more recipes that use Guinness & Irish Cream on the way. I’ve made about 6 recipes {and spilled an entire bottle of Guinness in my fridge}. I still have two bottles of beer and half a bottle of Irish cream to use in more recipes! The neverending bottles of booze only happens to sober folks, I guess 😛

  3. oh wow great flavor!

  4. Cioci says:

    Can I use this recipe in a donut machine?

    • Nicole Harris says:

      Hi Cioci! I’m sorry but I cannot say for sure if this recipe works with a donut machine. I’m not familiar with donut machines, never used one. I have heard that many donut pan recipes do work with the donut machines. Let me know if you do decide to give it a try. I would love to know if it works. Thanks!

  5. rachel says:

    this looks great. I only have one question – Is the temperature for baking in Celsius or Fahrenheit?

    • Nicole Harris says:

      Hi Rachel! The temp is fahrenheit. I should really specify that in my recipes … I always forget. Have a great day 🙂

  6. Lisa says:

    I don’t have a donut pan, so I improvised and made “long johns.” I spooned the batter
    into a Ziploc and piped it out. It wasn’t pretty, but I was too busy
    licking the glaze off the top to notice.
    Additionally, I may or may not have accidentally eaten half the glaze by the spoonful as they were baking.

    • Nicole Harris says:

      Oh, that is very clever of you. You can also use a muffin pan for most baked donut recipes. Just add about 10 minutes to baking time. And I was licking the glaze off my donuts too 😀

  7. Carrie Martin says:

    Hi there,

    If I’m making mini donuts, should i decrease bake time to 7-8 minutes and increase temperature to 350?

    • Nicole Harris says:

      I have never used a mini donut pan. I don’t think you need to increase the temp. But definitely check the donuts after about 7-8 minutes. Enjoy!

      • Carrie Martin says:

        Thank you.

        Im making these donuts in advance for St-Patricks day. Im wondering in order to preserve the freshness, should i glaze the donuts the day after baking them? Also, can they be stored in a air tight container?

        • Nicole Harris says:

          Oh shoot! I’m sorry for my delayed response. I must’ve missed your comment. I hope the donuts turned out great. Before storing in an airtight container they need to be completely cooled otherwise they can get too moist. Let me know how it worked out for you.
