Key Lime Doughnuts

Key Lime Doughnuts

here is a really easy variation on my recipe for mini doughnuts! it is so simple and the results are delicious. these are the perfect little dessert for the summer. if you like key lime pie, you’ll definitely like these doughnuts! this recipe will make about 2 dozen doughnuts.


  • batter for mini doughnuts
  • 1 lime
  • 6 sheets of graham crackers, crushed
  • 1 tbsp butter, melted
  • 2 tsp sugar
  • 2 tbsp coconut
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 tiny drop of green food coloring (optional)


  • fill each dougnut cup halfway with batter
  • mix crushed graham crackers, butter, and sugar in a bowl
  • sprinkle about a teaspoon of graham cracker mixture on top of each cup in the pan
  • bake at 400 degrees for about 5-6 minutes, or until doughnuts are firm to the touch
  • remove doughnuts from the oven, and allow to cool for about ten minutes
  • using a microplane, zest the lime. be sure to collect only the green zest and not the white pith. place the zest in a bowl
  • cut lime in half, and squeeze juice into bowl. if any seeds fall in, just pick them out.
  • whisk in powdered sugar and food coloring. if icing is too thin, add a bit extra powdered sugar
  • remove cooled doughnuts from pan. dip each doughnut in the glaze on the side not covered in graham crackers (the rounded side that was in the pan)
  • drizzle remaining glaze over doughnuts, and sprinkle with coconut
  • eat and enjoy!
