Did you see my “Talk Derby To Me” Kentucky Derby Party? If so, you know I’m serving Mint Julep Donuts with wine for the Kentucky Derby because I don’t like an actual Mint Julep drink. Blasphemy, I know. But a Mint Julep donut? So good! I based the donuts on more of a Disneyland Mint Julep with a Kentucky Derby glaze. That means a mint lemon vanilla donut topped with a bourbon glaze. These donuts are perfect for a Kentucky Derby party, a Southern-style brunch, or “just because” on a spring Sunday morning!
The full printable recipe is below, but you’ll need a few ingredients:
- granulated sugar
- baking powder
- mint extract
- powdered sugar
If you’re serving these for a Kentucky Derby party, go ahead and stick a race horse on top!
