Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 1/4 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 cup whole milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon almond extract
  • 1 large egg
  • 6 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted, plus more for the pan
  • 1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup toasted sweetened flaked coconut (see Cook's Note)
  • 1 cup confectioners' sugar
  • 1/4 cup natural cocoa powder
  • 4 to 6 teaspoons whole milk
  • 1/2 cup toasted sweetened flaked coconut (see Cook's Note)
  • 1/2 cup toasted sliced almonds (see Cook's Note)

Method

Step 1

For the batter: Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Butter a 6-cup doughnut pan. 

Step 2

In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, coconut, granulated sugar, baking powder and salt. In a small bowl, whisk together the milk, melted butter, almond extract and egg. Fold the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and stir just until combined.

Step 3

Transfer the batter to a plastic ziptop bag and cut the corner to make about a 1/2-inch opening. Squeeze the batter evenly into the depressions of the prepared pan. Bake until a toothpick inserted into a doughnut comes out clean, 12 to 14 minutes. Transfer the pan to a rack to cool slightly, then carefully tip the doughnuts out onto the rack to cool completely, about 45 minutes. 

Step 4

For the glaze and toppings: In a shallow bowl, whisk together the confectioners' sugar and cocoa powder. Add 4 teaspoons of the milk and whisk to make a smooth glaze. Add a little more milk if necessary.

Step 5

Dip the top of each cooled doughnut in the glaze. Top with the toasted coconut and almonds.
