Rock Candy Donuts

Mineral Rock Candy Donuts [v.]

If you know me, you know how crazy obsessed I have been with minerals and rocks lately. Seriously, I am Hank from Breaking Bad.

mineralsDammit, Marie! LOL Okay, anyways. So I had to make donuts and cover them in rock candy because… well, that makes me happy. The donut is actually lavender with a vanilla glaze.


The Recipe

Oven: 350 F
Bake Time: 12 minutes
Yields: 6-8 donuts

You will need:

For donuts:

  • 1/4 cup agave nectar
  • 3 tbs lavender syrup
  • ½ cup soy milk (or non-dairy preference)
  • Egg replacer (2 tsp flax meal + 1 tbsp warm water)
  • ¼ cup Earth Balance butter
  • 1 tbs vanilla extract
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1½ tsp baking powder
  • Pinch salt
  • Donut pan/mold

For glaze:

  • 1 1/2 cups powdered sugar (more or less as needed for consistency)
  • 3 Tbsp Earth Balance Butter, softened
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tbs cashew milk (or your preference)

For topping:

  • Rock candy in your favorite color/flavor – about 4-5 sticks.

To make:


  • Add first five wet ingredients to a medium bowl. Whisk until combined.
  • Add last three dry ingredients and mix until combined, but do not over mix.
  • Grease your donut pan, pipe into molds, and bake at 350 F for 12 minutes.
  • Set aside to cool.


  • In a small bowl, whisk powdered sugar, melted butter, vanilla and cashew milk. You want the consistency to be thick enough to not melt off, so add more sugar as necessary.
  • Dip donuts in, allow to drip, and put down to set.

Now… go rock candy crazy! For inspiration, check out all the types of minerals there are. GORGEOUS, right?

These are so stunning for a themed party or… you know, just hanging out at home like me. Just to look at and enjoy. xx bianca

  1. Loving the breaking bad reference! This post totally makes me want to dig out my pre-2000’s rock collection!

    • Haha, thank you!! I have been so obsessed with rocks and minerals lately… not sure what it is, but I am glad these donuts came from it LOL. Thanks for stopping by :-D

    • Thanks, Jaime!! The rock candy is a little too much for me, but they look fancy – so I agree with that birthday party notion ;) and yes, you do need to try it. It’s so good!

  2. What’s the blue one next to the amethyst called? I’ve also started my own collection, there’s a spirituality shop two minutes from my place that sell so many different gems. :) These donuts look awesome by the way.
