Baked Orange Creamsicle Donuts



For the Donuts:

  • 1 c all-purpose flour
  • 6 tbsp white sugar
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 6 tbsp buttermilk
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 tsp orange extract
  • 1 tbsp butter, melted

For the glaze:

  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 tablespoon orange extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 12 tablespoons water or milk
  • orange food coloring


  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees. In a medium bowl, combine all donut ingredients and stir just until evenly combined. Scoop batter into a large ziplock bag and cut the corner off to pipe into your donut pan. Bake donuts for 8-11 minutes or until donuts spring back and touched with your index finger. These do not brown so don’t wait for that!
  2. In a small bowl combine icing ingredients. You will need to gauge how much water/milk to add just until it is thin enough to stick to the donut but thick enough to coat the donut like in the photos above. Once icing is made, turn donut upside down into glaze and dunk until halfway submerged. Remove and let some icing drip off then flip right side up on a cooling rack.
  3. If you want the white glaze drizzle, combine 1/4 cup powdered sugar and 1-2 teaspoons of water and drizzle over the orange layer.
