Baked Tiramisu Donuts

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Tiramisu is my favorite dessert ever. The creamy mountain of goodness is wonderful enough, but then you throw in espresso, chocolate and rum. Flavor explosion there for sure! The moment I see tiramisu anything, you can pretty much lay down a bet that I will order it or taste it somehow.

It was only a matter of time before I combined my two loves – tiramisu and the donut. It was meant to be. The fact that they are under 300 calories for three of them just makes it all the better. I used my homemade power cakes mix to make them so they have a nice punch of protein and they’re dairy free too.

  • 1 cup (106g) power cakes pancake and waffle mix
  • 1 Tbsp (14g) dairy free butter
  • 1/4 cup strong brewed coffee
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp rum extract
  • 1 scoop (30g) vanilla protein powder
  • Pinch or two of baking cocoa

Preheat oven to 350 degrees and spray a 6 hole donut pan with non-stick spray. Mix the first 6 ingredients (through the rum extract) in a bowl until well blended. Fill each donut hole about 2/3rds full with batter. Bake at 350 degrees for 8-10 minutes.

Remove from oven and cool before decorating or icing. Mix the scoop of protein powder with a little bit of water to make a frosting consistency. Spread the frosting on each donut and top with a small sprinkle of baking cocoa.

Makes 2 servings of 3 donuts each at approximately 295 calories – 25g protein, 33g carbs, and 7g fat.


  • I used my homemade version of power cakes mix. You can also go with the real thing and use Kodiak Cakes Power Cakes Mix.
  • The butter I used is Smart Balance Original which is a dairy free butter substitute since The Kid has a dairy allergy. You can use a dairy based one if you prefer.
  • I knew I was frosting these with my protein powder which is sweetened so I didn’t add sugar to the donuts themselves. If you prefer a sweeter donut or are eating them nekkid, you can add a tablespoon or two of sugar to the batter before baking.

Now I’m dreaming of all things tiramisu – waffles, pancake roll ups, dairy free tiramisu…
