Fall marks the start of holiday baking season in our home and it’s our favorite time of year! I cannot think of anything better than weekend baking with the family on a crisp fall afternoon. It’s one of our favorite holiday activities that brings us together and it’s a tradition that we hope to continue as our daughter grows up.
In our home, we love baked donuts to pair with our coffee in the morning, but what’s even better is a baked donut made WITH our coffee. Coffee in baked goods?! YES PLEASE! Chai spices include all the warm and cozy spices of the holidays and pairing it with the flavor of Red Diamond® Classic Blend Ground Coffee makes for a delicious breakfast or brunch treat for the whole family.
These Chai Coffee Baked Donuts are made with Red Diamond Coffee. It’s REAL coffee, handpicked from the finest regions. Perfect’s not easy, but perfectionism is what Red Diamond does best. They are a family-owned company that provides pure, quality coffee roasted in Alabama!
Not only are these Chai Coffee Baked Donuts made with Red Diamond Classic Blend Ground Coffee, but they pair well with a warm cup too.
Next time you’re at the grocery store, be sure to add this to your cart. I was able to find this Red Diamond Classic Blend Ground Coffee 22 oz can at my local Publix. Be sure to check out the product locator to find a retailer near you!

- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 1 cup confectioners’ sugar
- 1/2 tsp cinnamon
- 3 tbsp maple syrup
- 2 tsp milk
- Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F, then spray a donut pan with cooking spray. Set aside.

- In a separate mixing bowl, whisk together the wet ingredients until well combined.
- Pour the wet ingredients into the dry and mix until well combined. Be careful to not overmix.

- Pipe the batter into donut pan cavities, filling 2/3 of the way full.
- Bake for 10-12 minutes.
- While donuts are cooling, make the maple glaze by mixing all glaze ingredients together in a small mixing bowl. (Add more confectioners’ sugar to thicken the glaze if needed).
- Dip cooled donut in glaze. Sprinkle with cinnamon and/or crushed pecans (optional).
- To make the glaze, mix all the glaze ingredients together in a shallow bowl until smooth. The mixture should be smooth and silky, but not too thin. (If yours is very thin, simply add a bit more icing sugar.) Top with crushed pecans (optional).
