Pineapple Donuts

Pineapple Donuts- Paint the Gown Red

Happy National Donut Day! To celebrate, I made pineapple donuts! Though somewhat abstract I think they’re still quite pineappley. What do you think? I dedicate these donuts to Kelly of Studio DIY. Yep. I’m going to start dedicating posts to people now. It makes sense because almost everything I do, wear or bake is inspired by someone. Though sometimes you might not know the person… which wouldn’t be nearly as fun. Let’s put a pin in that idea.

As I mentioned yesterday Kelly is all about donuts and pineapples. So I thought why not marry the two? Enter, pineapple donuts! And to keep you on your toes, they taste like cinnamon rolls! A pineapple flavored pineapple shaped donut seemed far too conventional for my taste. Here’s hoping you get your donut fix today. Go nuts!

Pineapple Donuts- Paint the Gown Red


  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 6 tablespoons buttermilk
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter, melted
  • 20 drops yellow food coloring

For Cream Cheese Glaze

  • 1/2 cup+ confectioners' sugar
  • 1 to 2 tablespoons cream cheese, softened
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon+ cinnamon
  • splash Milk
  • 10 drops yellow food coloring
  • Yellow Sprinkles


Preheat oven to 325 degrees and grease a 6-Cavity Donut Pan. Combine flour, sugar, baking powder, cinnamon, and salt in a large bowl. Add buttermilk, egg, vanilla and melted butter. Whisk to combine. Add yellow food coloring until donuts are preferred pineapple shade. Spoon batter into donut pan dividing it evenly amongst the 6 cavities. Bake 8 to 11 minutes, or until doughnuts spring back when touched. Cool completely.

For Cream Cheese Glaze: While donuts are cooling, make the glaze by combining powdered sugar, cream cheese, vanilla extract, cinnamon, with a small splash milk. Whisk to combine, adding the milk as necessary, until you’ve reached your desired consistency. Add yellow food coloring until glaze is desired pineapple hue. Dip the donuts into glaze and cover with sprinkles. Add crepe paper stems. Enjoy!
