Christmas Mince Pie Doughnuts

Don't you just love getting two of your favourite things in the whole wide world and combining them together? It's like chocolate and orange or roasties and mustard or peanut butter and jam. Some things were just meant to belong together. This is one of those times.

I am one huge Christmas fan and the second September (yes I'm that Christmas crazy) comes around I am all over the Christmas recipes trying out all the wonderful different combos out there. I think you'll all agree that I struck gold with this one. I mean mincepie flavoured doughnuts!!! Why had I not thought of that before? They really are as delicious as they sound. (Do you hear the sound of tooting trumpets?) Apologies for the shameless patting oneself on the back but I am so proud of this recipe and I can not wait to hear what you guys think of it too!




  • 1 cup plain flour

  • 1 tsp baking powder

  • 1/4 cup caster sugar

  • 1 tsp vanilla

  • 1/2 cup melted butter

  • 1/2 cup dairy-free milk we used coconut

  • 1 tbsp apple cider vinegar

  • pinch salt

  • spray coconut oil for greasing your doughnut pan

  • doughnut pan or silicon mould


  • 3/4 cup mincemeat

  • 1/2 cup dairy-free milk we used coconut

  • 1 tbsp icing sugar

  • 1 tsp cornflour

Cinnamon sugar

  • 1/2 cup caster sugar

  • 1 tbsp ground cinnamon


  1. Preheat the oven gas mark 5/375F

  2. Mix your vanilla, melted butter, milk and vinegar together to form your wet batter mix.

  3. Mix all your flour, sugar, salt and baking powder together to form your dry bowl.

  4. Slowly add your wet ingredients into your dry bowl and stir until completely combined.

  5. grease your doughnut pan with your chosen spray oil and evenly pour your mixture into your mould.

  6. Bake in the oven for 15-20 minutes or until golden and springy.

  7. Cool before turning out onto a board ready for decorating.

  8. To make the glaze mix together your mincemeat, icing sugar and milk until smooth. (There will be fruit pieces in it still.)

  9. Take some of the liquid from your glaze and mix it in a teacup or small bowl with your cornflour to form a creamy liquid.

  10. Then pour your cornflour mixture back into the glaze bowl and stir to combine. This should prevent lumps from forming.

  11. To make your sugar simply mix your two ingredients together in a bowl.

  12. When your doughnuts are cool, spoon over your glaze and sprinkle with your sugar. Enjoy!
