This month been a little crazy for me. In the last thee weeks I have been in Germany, Prague, France, Los Angeles, Texas, New Jersey, New York City, and Washington DC. Needless to say...I am very VERY tired.
But lucky for you guys...not tired enough to step away from the kitchen. Somehow in all that travel I managed to whip up these Marbled Doughnuts (and make a large mess in my kitchen during the process).
These doughnuts are light and fluffy and delicious. They are seriously the best homemade doughnuts I have ever had! The rich buttermilk and flavorful vanilla paste make these doughnuts somewhat magical...and that's even before you add the marbled icing.
The best part about the icing (besides how cool it looks) is that it is super easy and fun to do. And as long as you put plenty of parchment down before you start, your cleanup will be a lot easier than mine! Happy marbling!

Hi. These look amazing. And perfect for my daughters birthday! I’m in New Zealand...: just wondering about the difference between “all purpose flour” and “cake flour” (we don’t have both, only “standard plain flour” for cakes and biscuits or “high grade” for breads) thanks
Hello! I am so excited you are going to make these for your daughters birthday! All purpose flour and cake flour are differentiated by the amount of protein they have in them. All purpose has 10-13% and cake has only 8-9%. Cake flour is also usually bleached in the US (which I don't think they do in New Zealand). So for you, I would just use the "standard plain flour" for both the all purpose and the cake flours in this recipe! Let me know if you have any more questions!
Thank you for your response, Lindsay. I’ll give it another try and keep you posted.
Great! I can't wait to hear!
I must have done something wrong. I made these with my granddaughters and the donut was dry and the icing was really thin. It just soaked into the donuts. 3/4 cup buttermilk in each. ???? any suggestions and I’ll try them again.
Hi Kay! I am so sorry you had this problem! I just switched my website to a new platform and it looks like there was a transferring error in the icing recipe. I have updated it so the recipe is now correct. As for the dry doughnuts, I would take them out of the oven a few minutes earlier (your oven might be running hot). Let me know if this works! And I am so sorry again about the mistake on my end!
These look great, but I don't actually see a measurement for the buttermilk in the donut recipe.
Hi Kristina! That was m y mistake! I have added it!
i like this my mother is making cupcakes with marble filling for her baby shower
That sounds amazing!
Hey girl these look amazing! I love doughnuts!
