This is my last donut laced installment for Doughnutweek!  I figured I’d pull out all the stops for you on this post.  Afterall, this is Farmgirl GOURMET.  Right?  Ok ok, there’s not a lot gourmet about a doughnut, but using them to make something completely decadent and dessertlike?  I have to get a few brownie points for creativity.  If only I could get on Chopped and the ingredients in the box were donut holes, mascarpone and chocolate – I’d surely be Tom Allen’s fave.

I promise you that this recipe is incredibly easy to make and if you didn’t tell anyone, they’d never know that you bought donut holes to make this.  Seriously!  The cream is off the chain.  I managed to have a little extra (ok I didn’t use it all purposely) and it was quite delicious on a spoon.  Like really delicious on a spoon.  I know I’m gushing, but seriously – this is one recipe you should try!  Imagine making this for your honey for Valentine’s Day?  My honey taste tested it and after his eyes stopped bugging from his head he said ” Holy @#$%^ this is good”.  He’s one tough cookie to impress.  Part of the perks of being a foodies husband I guess.

A quick recipe for Donutmisu using purchased donut holes in place of lady fingers. Easy to make and you'd never know they were donuts.


  • 16 purchased plain donut holes
  • 3 egg yolks
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 8 ounces mascarpone cheese
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 3 tablespoon Frangelico almond liqueur, divided
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup boiling water
  • 1 tablespoon espresso powder
  • 1/4 cup finely grated dark chocolate, for garnish


  1. In the bowl of a mixer fitted with whisk attachment add the egg yolks and sugar and beat until pale yellow and thick, about 5 minutes, scraping down sides as necessary. Add the mascarpone, heavy cream, 1 tablespoon Frangelico and vanilla. Beat until soft peaks form, about 6-8 minutes. Set aside.
  2. Add the boiling water to a medium bowl and stir in espresso powder. Allow to cool slightly. Stir in 2 tablespoons Frangelico.
  3. Have ready 4 martini glasses. Add 4 donut holes to the espresso mixture and allow to soak 2 minutes, turning. Add one donut hole to each of the glasses. Top with 2-3 tablespoons cream mixture. Add remaining donut holes to espresso and again allow to soak 2 minutes. Add 3 donuts to each glass and top with the remaining cream. Refrigerate at least 2 hours. Sprinkle with grated chocolate and serve.
