Pooh bear & Friends Donuts

It has been a long time since I last shared about donuts on my blog. I started experimenting with various designs last school holidays. The ones I'm sharing today belongs to one of my earlier batch. I recently made an updated glazed version of this, I like the look of that one better but that recipe will be shared another time instead.

Pooh, Piglet, Tigger and Eeyore donuts, which one do you like? These donuts are baked, not fried, so the texture is similar to cakes. You would need a donut mould for this recipe, I'm using a silicon one but the metal ones are fine too.

I used Morinaga pancake mix to make this, but if you can't get hold of it, you should be able to substitute with other pancake mix.

I'm only sharing the recipe on how to make Pooh, since he's the easiest. However, you can use the same basic recipe to make the Eeyore, Tigger and Piglet.

I used soya milk and cold pressed coconut oil for this recipe and the donuts turned out really fragrant, I recommend these two combi, but I've also provided alternatives you can use in the recipe.


150g Monrinaga pancake mix
100ml soya milk/milk
1 egg
3 tbsp honey
10g cold pressed coconut oil/vegetable oil/melted butter
A little Wilton yellow icing colours
A little black charcoal powder

  1. Put pancake mix, soya milk, egg, honey and coconut oil in a bowl and mix until all the ingredients are evenly distributed. Scoop out 2 tbsp of batter, add in black charcoal powder and mix well, fill in a pipping bag (A) and set aside.

  7. Use pipping bag (B) to draw out circles on a tray lined with baking paper. Bake in preheated oven at 180C for 2 minutes. This will be for Pooh's ears.

  9. Using pipping bag (A), draw out Pooh's features on the baked donut, return the donut to the oven and bake for 1 minute. Stick on Pooh's ears using melted chocolate.
