Coconut Mango Doughnuts

Tristan and I are busy planning our honeymoon for the summer! We’re both ready to do nothing but relax on the beach with a good book and some coconut juice. Unfortunately, we still have eight more weeks of work to get through first. These coconut mango doughnuts will be the first of many tropical themed desserts I’m sure I’ll be making to get me through the next eight weeks. I made these last weekend for Mother’s Day since my mom is a big fan of coconut and mango and they were amazing! They might actually be my favorite doughnuts I’ve made yet.

Coconut Mango Doughnuts

Put all the doughnut ingredients in the bread machine and set it to the dough setting. When the dough is ready, take it out of the machine, roll it out to about ½in (1.3cm) and cut out3in (8cm) circles using a cookie cutter. Place them on some parchment paper, cover with plastic wrap to prevent drying, and leave them somewhere warm for about 30 to 40 minutes to let them double in size. While waiting, whip up a can of chilled coconut cream with some icing sugar, and keep it in the fridge to chill. I used Minimalist Baker’s recipe for the coconut whipped cream. Dice two ripe mangoes and set them aside. I used Irwin mangoes, also called apple mangoes in Japan due to its red skin. These are probably my favorite mangoes since they’re so sweet and aren’t as fibrous as other types.

After you’ve fried and cooled the doughnuts, slice each one in half. I glazed the tops of the doughnuts after slicing them, but I don’t think it adds much to these coconut mango doughnuts so I’m leaving it out of the recipe. Smear on a nice layer of coconut whipped cream on the bottom half. You could pipe this on instead and make it look decorative, but I wanted it to look a little more rustic and homemade. I also spread a thin layer of coconut whipped cream on the top half to avoid it getting soggy from the moisture in the mango.

Pile some of that sweet diced mango on top of the cream and place the top half back on.

These coconut mango doughnuts really hit the spot when you’re craving a tropical dessert. The luscious coconut whipped cream paired with juicy fresh mango is just amazing. Not a fan of coconut or mangoes? Try my Baileys Boston cream, apple, or blueberry cream cheese doughnuts instead!
