Fruity Pebbles Doughnuts

Ingredients

  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter, room temperature
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • Pinch salt
  • 1/3 cup whole milk
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 cups Fruity Pebbles, divided
  • 1 vanilla icing

Vanilla Icing

  • 1 1/2 cups confectioners’ sugar
  • 2 tablespoons whole milk
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract

Instructions

  • Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees and lightly grease a doughnut tin with nonstick cooking spray
  • In a large bowl, beat together butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add the egg and vanilla extract and mix to combine.
  • In a separate bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, and salt.
  • Pour dry ingredients into the butter/sugar, alternating with milk, and mix until just combined. Take care not to over-mix or doughnuts will be dense.
  • Fold 1/2 cup Fruity Pebbles into the batter.
  • Evenly distribute batter into cavities of prepared doughnut pan, filling tin almost all the way.
  • Bake for 15 minutes, until the doughnuts are starting to turn golden and spring back when touched. Let cool in pan for a few minutes, before moving to wire rack to cool completely before icing.
  • When doughnuts are cooled, dip upside down into icing to coat the tops. Sprinkle remaining cup of Fruity Pebbles over icing.

Vanilla Icing

  • In a medium bowl, whisk confectioners’ sugar, milk, and vanilla extract together. If you want your icing to be thicker, add more confectioners’ sugar, 1 tablespoon at a time. If you want it to be thinner, add more milk, 1 teaspoon at a time.
