Baked Coffee Doughnuts

I’m no stranger to waking up to the intoxicating smell of coffee. Growing up, the coffee pot was burbling away each morning before anyone was even out of bed, and both my parents drank it by the bucket.

I however, other than a brief dalliance in collage involving late-night study-driven coffee consumption tarted up with copious amounts of milk and sugar, never joined club-coffee.

Baked Coffee Doughnuts

Of course there has always been an affinity for coffee ice cream and tiramisu (seeing a trend?) — but when it comes to hot beverages in a mug my hard core tea habit is well know round these parts.

But not drinking coffee certainly doesn’t exclude me from baking and cooking with it, so when Harris Coffee approached me about creating a coffee recipe my mind started ticking over.

Baked Coffee Doughnuts

I’ve done chocolate and coffee (then did it again) and it’s always a winning combination, but there in a little corner of my mind was a niggling memory of a discovery from Adelaide… Who knew black coffee was so lovely when each sip was paired with a bite of a sugared doughnut. Did I mention this was a very dangerous discovery? And so Coffee Doughnuts began to percolate away (see what I did there?).

Baked Coffee Doughnuts

First I made mini ones and took them to a craft evening. At one point while standing next to a table piled high with baked goods someone pointed to the lone remaining mini and said “have you tried the coffee doughnuts, they are so good!” I giggled and mentioned I certainly had tried them and that I may have made them.

I must admit, these are even better than that first trial batch.

Baked Coffee Doughnuts

Harris Coffee has been roasting and blending beans on-site in their Sydney headquarters for over 130 years. Their master blender has been with the company for 15+ years and tastes over 80 cups of coffee a day — I bet he could use a doughnut.

Thanks to Harris Coffee you can win a hamper packed with Australian goodies!

    My favorite way to enjoy my morning caffeine hit is ALWAYS with my lovely hubby… Whether it’s warming our frozen, winter-bitten fingers in our cold car during our morning commute or while discussing life’s little mysteries on our weekend, mid-morning walks. A coffee break is always better shared :)

    • JJ on June 13, 2014 at 7:34 pm

      What a lovely ritual!

  2. amber on June 12, 2014 at 12:28 pm

    What an interesting recipe! I’ve only ever made doughnuts once and found it labor intensive. I think the ones I made were fried, not baked, so it was also rather messy (and less healthy!) Additionally, I don’t drink coffee… I’m a tea drinker.

    However, I’m really intrigued by this recipe. Particularly that it’s made with coconut oil, and that it it so fast to make! I’ve always wanted to make doughnuts again, but have yet to get around to it… perhaps I will start with this recipe. It looks delicious…!

    • JJ on June 13, 2014 at 7:36 pm

      I do love a fried doughnut but hot oil is quite the commitment (and waistband expander ;)) I hope you try these!

  3. Brenda Hayes on June 12, 2014 at 12:33 pm

    Sounds delicious. I can smell the coffee now. I limit myself to 2 large mugs these days but I sure would like more!!

    • JJ on June 13, 2014 at 7:37 pm

      Hee I bet you would!

  4. Helen (Grab Your Fork) on June 12, 2014 at 1:04 pm

    Coffee and donut in one mouthful? Genius!

    • JJ on June 13, 2014 at 7:37 pm

      My feeling exactly ;D

  5. laurasmess on June 12, 2014 at 6:41 pm

    This is a gorgeous post JJ. I love doughnuts in any way, shape or form but I’ve actually never made them at home (shock! Horror!). I think your recipe would be a great place to start!! I am very picky when it comes to my morning coffee. I do love a good, milky cup to start the day but it has to be when I have time to enjoy every drop (preferably on weekends, in the fresh air with something delicious). I think I need to buy a plunger. And make these super awesome doughnuts. Thanks for the recipe! xx

    • JJ on June 13, 2014 at 7:44 pm

      Aw thanks Laura! I must admit that this is the first time I’ve made doughnuts – I’m dangerously hooked!

  6. Hayley on June 12, 2014 at 7:45 pm

    My favourite way to enjoy my morning coffee is quietly, it’s the calm before the storm.

  7. AmberB on June 12, 2014 at 8:27 pm

    My favourite way to enjoy my morning coffee is ‘With My Feet Up’ :)

  8. Rachel H on June 12, 2014 at 8:57 pm

    What a delicious recipe! My favorite way to enjoy my morning coffee is in a huge mug with a splash of almond milk. I have to have hot coffee even in the summer!

    • JJ on June 13, 2014 at 7:45 pm

      I get odd looks when I order hot tea in the middle of the summer but I can’t go past my mid-morning fix!

  9. Sonja L. on June 12, 2014 at 9:43 pm

    My favorite way to enjoy my morning tea is quietly in front of the television. Alone.

  10. Mirjam on June 13, 2014 at 12:17 am

    sounds delicious… a must-try!!

  11. Mirjam on June 13, 2014 at 12:18 am

    i like tea more.. but i love coffee too

  12. Kendall on June 13, 2014 at 4:04 am

    My favorite way to enjoy my tea is while watching the morning news with my little pup on my lap.

  13. Hannah on June 13, 2014 at 4:05 am

    Coffee is the elixir of life. I make it (with almond milk to stain it a little) as soon as I get to work every morning. It helps me go to work.

  14. The Life of Clare on June 13, 2014 at 5:41 am

    I’m not a coffee drinker either, but J is and the smell fills the house every morning.

  15. Elyse on June 13, 2014 at 6:16 am

    I’m also a huge tea drinker! My favourite first thing in the morning is a dainty cup of gen mai cha – love that pop corny taste!

    • JJ on June 13, 2014 at 7:47 pm

      I must admit gen mai cha polarises me – I did have a really nice one the other day though!

  16. Paula J Morgan on June 13, 2014 at 7:10 am

    I love my first cup of coffee each morning – pretty much as soon as I open my eyes… in summer on the balcony and in winter in bed!

    • JJ on June 13, 2014 at 7:48 pm

      Sounds lovely :)

  17. milkteaxx on June 13, 2014 at 12:42 pm

    mm im not a coffee drinker either, tea all the way! have recently fallen in love with tea flavoured chiffons!

  18. Laura (Tutti Dolci) on June 13, 2014 at 1:00 pm

    Gorgeous doughnuts, I would love these with my morning coffee!

  19. muppy on June 13, 2014 at 5:22 pm

    I like to enjoy my morning coffee or tea in peace ;)

    • JJ on June 13, 2014 at 7:48 pm

      I’d have to guess you don’t get too much of that these days Muppy ;)

  21. Lisa Abejja on June 13, 2014 at 8:30 pm

    Every morning I wake to my crochet, my chair by the front window where the warm morning sun wakes me and my freshly brewed pot of strong sweet coffee. I have been doing this now for a year and it’s such a quiet, relaxing way to start my day before the wee ones wake up and chaos is let loose ????

    • Lisa Abejja on June 13, 2014 at 8:32 pm

      I see question marks at the end of my comment but it’s meant to be a smiley face hehe

  22. Keren on June 14, 2014 at 12:20 am

    This looks so awesome! I loveee coffee flavoured everything, Now looks like I *need* a donut pan…….

  23. Lisa Habinowski on June 14, 2014 at 8:20 am

    Recipe looks great! I think I may have a bit of trouble gathering the ingredients, but once made I don’t think the doughnuts wil last long! Thank you

  24. Kim @ Hungry Healthy Girl on June 14, 2014 at 9:02 am

    Love my morning coffee with almond milk and stevia! I’m also a sucker for Starbucks!

  25. Shez on June 14, 2014 at 9:46 am

    Oh donuts! I love the pattern your pan has given them too! I’m not a big coffee drinker either but would happily have a coffee infused treat at the start of each day ?

  26. Heidi P on June 14, 2014 at 10:35 am

    As quickly as possible! I have a six week old baby!!

  27. Ross S on June 14, 2014 at 11:17 am

    With a newspaper and a nice pastry.

  28. Kalai on June 14, 2014 at 3:52 pm

    My favourite way is with a view of the Eiffel Tower!

  29. Annie @ The Random Foodie on June 15, 2014 at 1:58 am

    my fave way to enjoy my coffee is with a biscuit on the side. love going to cafes that offer a complimentary bikkie every time i get a cup of coffee

  30. Paige c on June 15, 2014 at 3:41 am

    My favorite way is sitting on the back porch talking with my mom and with a handful of dark chocolate espresso beans :)

  31. Mr C @ The Food Diary on June 15, 2014 at 7:59 pm

    The coffee doughnuts look delish!

  32. Tania @ The Cook's Pyjamas on June 15, 2014 at 8:27 pm

    My favourite way to enjoy my morning caffeine hits is slowly and quietly, after every one else has left the house and it is just me and the rabbit :)

  33. karina le on June 16, 2014 at 11:20 am

    I love a steaming hot mug of tea with a chilled custard tart! Heaven in my mouth!

  34. Fiona on June 16, 2014 at 11:27 am

    Watching the sunrise courtesy of early rising kids!

  35. Gayle Richardson on June 16, 2014 at 1:20 pm

    My favourite way to enjoy my first morning coffee is ALONE!

  36. Natalie on June 16, 2014 at 1:50 pm

    My favourite way to enjoy morning/afternoon tea is kid-less!! :)

  37. Jen on June 16, 2014 at 2:17 pm

    I like to take my morning coffee out to the garden but I LOVE it when my husband brings me a coffee in bed instead!

  38. vicki wilson on June 16, 2014 at 3:30 pm


  39. Maria on June 16, 2014 at 3:37 pm

    I love to enjoy my first coffee before everyone is up and whilst reading the morning paper.

  40. lisa on June 16, 2014 at 6:19 pm

    Depends on how well our little one sleeps, so a morning coffee In a very large mug or two!

  41. Michelle Gray on June 16, 2014 at 6:41 pm

    A latte with full cream milk, no sugar and a wish for silence (this part never happens when you have two little kids).

  42. Clare De Celis on June 16, 2014 at 7:45 pm

    steaming hot with a dash of vanilla bean cream.

  43. Rebekah Ballingall on June 16, 2014 at 8:20 pm

    In Bed is the Best Way to enjoy a Morning Coffee

  44. Elizabeth M on June 16, 2014 at 9:05 pm

    As soon as I’m out of bed and filled with pre-work dread, a tasty cup of coffee, is enough to fill me with glee!

  45. Jennifer B. on June 16, 2014 at 9:39 pm

    Flat white, in peace and preferably in Italy – with George Clooney…

  46. Amanda Gorton on June 16, 2014 at 10:53 pm

    Unhurried, while reading the morning paper, with two slices of buttered raisin toast.
    Simple yet satisfying!

  47. Charlotte on June 16, 2014 at 11:00 pm

    I love my coffee with a shake of cinnamon instead of sugar – it tricks the tastebuds into registering sweetness, and kickstarts your digestive system at the beginning of the day. Not to mention, it tastes great!

    Those coffee doughnuts look AMAZING, I’ve never seen anything like them! My mum and I will definitely be making them sometime soon :) Thanks for the chance, we love Harris Coffee in this house!

    • JJ on June 18, 2014 at 1:29 pm

      Great tip! Let me know if you try the doughnut recipe :D

  48. Jeanette LATTER on June 17, 2014 at 12:29 am

    I love my coffee in a coffeepot white with artificial sweetener topped off with a continental breakfast.

  49. Karolina on June 17, 2014 at 7:59 am

    I will try this receipe for sure, I have already takers lined up.

  50. sonia cattley on June 17, 2014 at 9:30 am

    Sitting outside in a cafe, watching the office workers rush from place to place….I love working in a caring office

  51. annie halfpenny on June 17, 2014 at 10:18 am

    a hot cup of coffee and a quiet morning, preferably with something sweet and delicious.

  52. Dyane C. on June 17, 2014 at 10:34 am

    One of the main reasons I visit your blog (besides the amazing recipes) are the artistic photos! So gorgeous, much wow :) My current routine is to to blitz/blend my coffee with coconut ice-cream and vanilla syrup. And with pfeffernusse cookies :D

    • JJ on June 18, 2014 at 1:30 pm

      Dyane you are too kind! Now that is the kind of coffee I can get behind ;D

  53. Dianne Childs on June 17, 2014 at 1:14 pm

    Once I’ve walked my son to school, I love relaxing with a lovely hot coffee and a Yoyo biscuit, in the peace and quiet. Bliss!

  54. mellie jane on June 17, 2014 at 3:16 pm

    Quietly before everyone else gets out of bed so i have a little moment to myself to start my day.

  55. Emily Mclaughlan on June 17, 2014 at 4:56 pm

    I love sitting out in the sun listening to the birds in the morning enjoying my coffee over some delicious raisin toast perfect start

    • JJ on June 18, 2014 at 1:31 pm

      Raisin toast certainly seems to be a theme!

  56. Caroline Hannessen on June 17, 2014 at 7:01 pm

    To be honest – quietly! I am not a noise lover and my morning coffee is the best time to sit quietly and ponder life.

  57. Laura Powers on June 17, 2014 at 7:16 pm

    Before it goes cold in between looking after my 1 year old

  58. monica scurlock on June 17, 2014 at 8:46 pm
