These Easy Ube Donuts are a feast for both the eyes and the taste buds. Topped with a simple yet delicious icing sugar and vanilla extract glaze, these Ube Donuts are perfect for kids to enjoy.

With its soft texture and captivating color, we have no doubt these Easy Ube Donuts will disappear within moments, and leave smiles on everyone’s faces! There’s truly no better kids party snack than this one. Ube Donuts are easy to make ahead of time and have the kids decorate them as an activity at a birthday party and get creative with!

  • Ingredients

    Ube Donuts
    All-purpose flour 1 cup.
    Baking powder 1 tsp.
    Salt 1 pinch.
    Granulated sugar 3/4 cup.
    Water 2/3 cup.
    Wesson Corn Oil 2 tbsp.
    Ube extract 1 tsp.

    Ube Donuts

    Pre-heat oven to 350°F.

    Lightly coat non-stick donut pan with cooking spray.

    In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder and salt.

    In a large bowl, whisk together sugar, water, Wesson Corn Oil, ube extract and egg. Stir in flour mixture and whisk just to combine (do not overmix).

    Spoon the batter into each donut cavity about 3/4 of the way. Bake for 10 to 12 minutes or until tester inserted into a donut comes out clean. (Time is dependent on size of donuts, larger ones will be at the higher end of the cooking time.)

    Place pan on a wire rack and cool for 10 minutes. Gently remove donuts from pan and cool completely.


    In a small bowl, combine sugar, vanilla and water. For thicker glaze, reduce water amount.

    Assembly Method
    Dip donuts into glaze allowing excess to drip off. Place on a rack over a baking sheet. Decorate with sprinkles if desired and allow to set for 10 minutes.
    Switch up adding sprinkles for a drizzle of your favorite sauce or crushed nuts!
