Here’s How to Make Mojito Doughnuts
Boozy desserts are the new bacon, and what better way to celebrate than with doughnuts you can almost get drunk off of?
That’s right, here’s a fun recipe for some beautiful looking Mojito Doughnuts that comes by way of our food blogging friend Katerina. All you’ll need is some select ingredients, about an hour of alone time in the kitchen, and some special people you want to share these with.
Katerina tells us that she initially whipped up these doughnuts as a treat for both her husband and her father. The dessert was made because both the men in her life love mojitos, and they love soccer, and maintain a tradition that if Real Madrid wins, the father makes the mojitos. If Barcelona wins, her husband makes the mojitos. Lucky for us, the day that Katerina made these doughnuts, Real Madrid lost — to heal her husband’s wound, she made him boozy doughnuts.
- Prep Time: 10 minutes
- Cook Time: 15 minutes
- Total Time: 25 minutes
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 cup whole milk
- 1 tablespoon rum
- 1 whole egg
- 3 tablespoons butter, softened
- For the Glaze:
- 2 tablespoons whole milk
- 1 teaspoon fresh lime juice
- 1 cup powdered sugar
- 1/8 teaspoon dried mint
- Preheat oven to 350.
- In a large bowl whisk together the flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt; set aside.
- In a small saucepan bring together the milk, rum, egg, and butter.
- Cook over medium-heat, stirring constantly with a whisk until the butter melts, about one to two minutes.
- Remove from heat and add the milk mixture into the flour mixture; mix until combined.
- Grease a doughnut pan with cooking spray.
- Using a large tablespoon, spoon the doughnut mixture into the pan.
- Bake for 12 to 14 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean.
- Remove and immediately invert the pan onto a cooling rack.
- While the doughnuts are cooling, begin to work on the glaze.
- Place the milk, lime juice, and powdered sugar in a small saucepan and cook over medium-heat, stirring constantly just until combined and no lumps appear.
- Remove from heat and set the saucepan over a bowl filled with hot water.
- Stir in the dried mint.
- Dip the doughnuts into the glaze, one at a time, and set on a rack, glaze side up. Put a baking sheet underneath the rack because some of that glaze will drip off.
