With these sweet Raspberry Cake Donuts, brunch has simply never been better! These thick, perfectly baked raspberry donuts can be made in under a half hour – no, I’m not joking! Sweeten up your day with a batch of these insanely delicious cake donuts!

Donuts are placed on a sheet of parchment paper.

Make a batch of these easy raspberry cake donuts for your next brunch or get together with some girlfriends, and I PROMISE you — they’ll get more attention than the mimosas and eggs benedict combined! Honestly, these baked cakey donuts are as scrumptious as they are picturesque!

Whether you decide to glaze them, top them off with powdered sugar, roll them in butter and sugar, or just eat them plain, you’ll be swooning. The exterior of the donuts has a delicate crunch, while the inside is sweet, soft, and cakey.

The rich raspberry flavor comes only from the berries, so make these soon! Raspberries are freshest in the summer, making these donuts one of my favorite treats to make in the warmer months. You just can’t beat baking with ripe, juicy, fresh berries!

Four donuts are glazed and garnished with raspberries, while one is plain. Ingredients for raspberry cake donuts

For the donuts, here’s what you’ll need:

  • Sugar – Just plain white granulated sugar is all that’s needed, nothing fancy!
  • Light brown sugar – Don’t have any on hand? Make some by thoroughly combining 1 cup of white sugar with 2 teaspoons of molasses!
  • Vegetable oil – Canola oil can be used in a pinch
  • Egg – Can be cold or room temp
  • Baking powder – Baking powder is what will make the donuts rise to their perfectly round shape
  • Flour – All purpose white flour is what works best in this recipe
  • Milk – I use dairy whole milk!
  • Raspberries – Use fresh, not frozen. If you have to use frozen, let them thaw before using!

The glaze only needs:

  • Powdered sugar – Really, no glaze would be complete without it
  • Heavy cream – Whole milk can be used instead, but it may not result in a very thick glaze
  • Lemon juice – Just a splash will compliment the fresh raspberry flavor wonderfully

Donuts are garnished in white icing and freeze dried raspberries on a sheet of parchment paper. Can I add anything else to these raspberry cake donuts?

I love these simple and sweet donuts just they are, but if you want to be a little extra, that’s okay too!

Here are some more ingredients to consider adding:

  • Almonds taste delicious with raspberries, so consider adding some thinly sliced almond on top of the glaze! It’ll be pretty, and tasty.
  • Pretty much all berries pair well with raspberries, so you can toss some into the batter! Blueberries or blackberries would probably be the most delicious.
  • Citrus is so mouthwatering and refreshing with raspberry, which is why I tossed some lemon juice in the glaze! To amp that up even more, you can double the amount of lemon juice, or add a splash of freshly squeezed orange juice.

A bite has been taken out of a donut. Satisfy your sweet tooth at the start of the day with these other breakfast recipes!

Notes

I used freeze dried raspberries chopped to decorate the donuts.
