Key Lime Pie Donuts

Share this Recipe!

Key Lime Pie Donuts begin with a moist lightly lime flavored donut, and are topped with a vibrant green Key Lime frosting. Then sprinkled with toasted coconut and graham cracker crumbs for a truly wonderful treat. 

These Key Lime Pie Donuts were created for #SummerDessertWeek! I was sent some amazing samples by some of our sponsor companies to use if I wanted, but as always content and opinions are 100% honest and my own.

We wanted something fun and festive to celebrate summer and these Key Lime Pie Donuts definitely hit the spot!

Yield: 1 dozen
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 12 minutes
Total Time: 22 minutes

Key Lime Pie Donuts begin with a moist lightly lime flavored donut, and are topped with a vibrant green Key Lime frosting. Then sprinkled with toasted coconut and graham cracker crumbs for a truly wonderful treat. 


For the Donuts:


  1. Preheat the oven to 325°F. Prepare your donut pan by greasing and then lightly flouring.
  2. In a medium bowl, sift together the flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt.
  3. In your stand mixer, beat the eggs. Add the sour cream, oil, vanilla and milk and beat again. Add the key lime juice and lime zest and beat again.
  4. Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients a little at a time. Once added, mix on medium speed about a minute.
  5. Add the batter to a piping bag and pipe the batter into each cavity of the donut pan about ⅔ full.
  6. Bake for 10-12 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.
  7. Cool in pan 5 minutes and then turn out onto a wire cooling wrack and cool completely.
  8. Use the Key Lime Icing to top the donuts. Sprinkle the tops with toasted coconut and graham cracker crumbs, if desired.
