Rainbow Cereal Baked Donuts

Updated: Mar 9, 2022

Do you guys like traditional fried donuts?

If you ask me it's a big NO.

Fried sweets taste gross and smell bad in my opinion.

However, baked donuts are super delicious and fun so I'm sharing with you my favorite baked donut recipe, which is adapted from here.


  • 100g sour cream *

  • 1 small egg (about 50g)

  • 23g vegetable oil

  • 25g melted butter

  • 83g sugar

  • 104g all purpose flour

  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda

  • 1/8 teaspoon nutmeg (optional)

  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract *


  • 2 teaspoon milk

  • 1/4 tsp vanilla extract (optional)

  • 50g confectioners' sugar

  • Sour Patch Kids cereal crumbles*


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F (180°C).

  2. In a small bowl whisk together flour, baking soda, salt and nutmeg.

  3. In a different bowl add sour cream, egg, oil, melted butter, sugar and vanilla extract and mix well with a hand whisk until you get a creamy consistency.

  4. Add dry ingredients into the mixture and stir well with a rubber spatula until all combined (do not mix too much).

  5. Grease your donut pan with oil or cooking spray.

  6. Pour the batter into the pan with a teaspoon filling up to 3/4 otherwise the donut holes are going to close during the baking process. You should obtain 6-7 donuts with this batter.

  7. Bake for about 12-16 minutes.

  8. Let them cool in the pan for about 10 minutes then transfer to a cooling rack.

  9. Make the glaze combining sugar and milk in a small bowl until you get a dense consistency.

  10. Glaze the tops of the donuts and sprinkle with Sour Patch Kids cereal crumbles.

  11. Enjoy :)


  • You can substitute sour cream with the same amount of full fat greek yogurt but the consistency won't be exactly the same because sour cream is higher in fat. If you want to obtain something similar you might try this substitution: 80g full fat greek yogurt + 20g soft butter + 10 ml water.

  • You can use vanillina (powdered vanilla) if you can't find vanilla extract.

  • You can use any rainbow cereal you can find.

  • The donut pan I'm using is this one


If you make it let me know! :)
