Glazed Beet Donuts

  • Ready Time : 0 min


3 pieces


  • 3/4 cup all purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 3/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • pinch salt
  • pinch cinnamon
  • pinch cayenne
  • 1/4 cup chopped roasted beets
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 3/4 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon shortening


  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 tablespoon milk


Preheat oven to 325 F. Lightly grease three donut forms in a donut baking pan.

In a small bowl, mix together the flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, cinnamon and cayenne.

In a small food processor or chopped, purée the beets with the milk. It won’t be smooth. Mix into the flour mixture. Stir in the vanilla, egg and shortening. Divide between the three greased donut forms.

Bake for 8 – 11 minutes (mine took all 11) until the donuts spring back when touched. Let cook for a few minutes in the donut pan before removing to a rack to finish cooling.

Once cool, make the glaze by mixing the powdered sugar and milk in a bowl you can easily dip the donuts into. I like to start with the water and add the sugar a little at a time until I get a thickness I like. You may need more or less sugar. Dip the cool donuts carefully into the glaze. Remove to a rack where the glaze can drip off. Let set for a few minutes to harden.
