Key Lime Coconut Donuts

For the Key Lime Coconut Donuts:
  1. 1 and 1/4 cups all purpose flour
  2. 1 teaspoon baking powder
  3. 1/2 teaspoon salt
  4. 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  5. 2 teaspoons fresh lime zest
  6. 2 1/2 tablespoons coconut oil, melted
  7. 1 large egg, at room temperature
  8. 1/2 cup coconut milk

For the Key Lime Glaze:
  1. 1 cup confectioners' sugar
  2. 1 and 1/2 tablespoons key lime juice
  3. 1 teaspoon lime zest
  4. 1/8 teaspoon salt

(Optional) Decoration:
  1. 1/2 cup shredded coconut, toasted
  2. 2 teaspoons lime zest

For the Key Lime Coconut Donuts:
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees (F). Generously grease a doughnut pan; set aside.
  • In a small bowl whisk together flour, baking powder and salt; set aside.
  • In a large bowl combine the granulated sugar and lime zest; mix together with your fingers until zest is evenly distributed in the sugar. Add in the melted coconut oil and, using a whisk, mix until combined. Beat in the egg, then stir in coconut milk.
  • Add in the dry ingredients and gently fold the mixture together using a rubber spatula, stirring only until mixture is evenly combined.
  • Divide the thick batter evenly among the molds of your prepared pan, filling each mold up 2/3 of the way. Bake for 10-11 minutes, or until firm and lightly golden on the tops.
  • Remove pan from oven and allow doughnuts to cool for at least 10 minutes in the tray before transferring to a cooling wrack to cool completely.
  • Once cool, dip each doughnut in glaze and serve! The glaze does take a few minutes to set, so you may want to wait about 5 minutes after glazing to dig in... but it's hard!
