- 1/3 cup sugar
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 2 tbsp unsalted sweet cream butter, melted
- 1 large egg
- 1/3 + 1 1/2 tbsp whole milk

- 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
- 1/4 tsp kosher salt
- 4 tbsp whole milk
- Black gel food coloring
- Black cookie icing
- Grey fondant
- Red Fondant
- Pink fondant
- Ivory Fondant
- Bow Tie Fondant Mold
- 1/2 cup powdered sugar
- paint brushes
Follow the below directions to make your own homemade Eeyore Donuts.
- Preheat your oven to 350 degrees and spray your donut pan with cooking spray.
- In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt.
- In a small bowl, whisk together egg, milk, butter, and vanilla extract.
- Combine the wet ingredients in with the dry ingredients and mix until well combined.
- Spoon the batter into a donut pan and bake for 10 minutes. Remove from the oven and allow to cool for 6 minutes before removing and placing the donuts onto a wire rack.
- Repeat the steps until the batter is gone.
Making the Ears
- Using the grey fondant, pinch off about 2 – 1/2 tsp of fondant and roll into a ball and roll the ball in-between your hands to form a long rounded piece. Next, using your fingers, lightly flatten the fondant log into a long flat piece of fondant. Set aside for later
- Pinch off about 2 – 1/8 tsp of pink fondant and roll the pink fondant into balls and then roll them into logs
- Flatten the logs into long flat pieces
- Lightly wet fingers and brush them along the middle of your grey disks to leave a trail of water. The water will act as glue when you are working with fondant. Carefully lay the pink flat piece onto the grey flat piece of fondant. Repeat steps for 29 more ears. You will need a total of 30 ears. Allow to sit harden while you make the glaze.
Vanilla Glaze Directions:
- In a large bowl combine the powdered sugar, vanilla, salt and milk and mix until combined. If the glaze has powdered sugar clumps still, mix in another tbsp of milk.
- Mix in 1-2 drops of black coloring and mix until combined. You are wanting to get a light grey shade.
- Make sure that your wire rack is on top of a larger cookie sheet so that when you pour the grey glaze onto the donuts, the glaze will not drip onto the counter.
- Allow the donuts to dry for 10 minutes then carefully lift one of the ears up.
- Lightly get your finger wet and brush it on the edge of the top of the ear and carefully place the top of the ear on the side of the donut. Repeat steps with the other ear. Set aside while you mold your fondant bows.
- Using a small pointy paint brush, dip it into the powdered sugar and brush the powdered sugar into the fondant mold. Pinch off a piece of red fondant and push it into the mold. Allow the fondant to sit there for a few minutes before pushing the bow out of the mold. Repeat steps for 14 more bows.
- Lightly brush water onto the back of the bow and place the bow on to the bottom middle of the donut.
- Using the ivory colored fondant and repeat the steps that you did for the ears and carefully shape the ivory into a bean shape for the base of the mouth. Lightly wet the back of the ivory fondant piece and place onto the top middle of the donut.
- Using the black icing, pipe a line down the center of the of the donut. Pipe hair onto the top part of the donut, pipe stitches down the center of the donut, pipe a dot on both sides of the donut for the eyes, a line above the eyes for his eyebrows and a dot on the ivory fondant for the nose.
- Allow to dry for an hour before enjoying!
