Doughnut Sticks

Doughnut Sticks

We have all had those packaged Little Debbie Snack Cakes before. They are so good. Now, I made my own “Doughnut Sticks” a few years ago and they turned out so amazing. We love them in the morning to go with our coffee or tea OR for dessert. Whatever the case may be, these little desserts are absolutely amazing and delicious. They are so soft and flavorful. You will not want to go back to those store-bought snack cakes again after making these.

Let’s hop right in.


1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 cup sugar ( of choice)
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp nutmeg
1/4 tsp fine salt
1/2 cup milk (of choice)
1 egg
1 tsp vanilla
2 tbsp butter – melted
2 cups powdered sugar
2-4 tbsp milk


  1. Preheat the oven to 375* and line two sheet trays with parchment or a sil-pat. Set aside.
  2. In a bowl whisk together the flour, sugar, baking powder, cinnamon, nutmeg, and salt.
  3. Add in the milk, egg, vanilla, and butter. Stir to combine well. Make sure there are no clumps but do not over mix the batter. The batter should be slightly thick so it does not make one giant glob when you pipe it out.
  4. Add the batter to a piping bag or a zip-lock bag and snip off about 1/2 inch to a 3/4 in the tip of the bag. Or you can use a large round piping tip.
  5. Squeeze the batter onto the prepared baking sheet. Make sure to space the batter about 1 1/2 inch apart so they do not bake into each other. This batter should make about 12-16 doughnut sticks depending on how long you make the strips. I usually make the strips about 3-4 inches long.
  6. Bake for about 10 to 15 minutes OR until the edges are golden and the center of the doughnut sticks are cooked through. You can use a toothpick and check the center of the doughnut stick and if it comes out clean you are good to go.
  7. Remove and let cool about 5 to 10 minutes on the pan and then remove to a wire rack to cool completely.
  8. In a bowl combine the powdered sugar and milk and whisk until the mixture is thick but pourable. Dunk the doughnut sticks into the powdered sugar glaze or drizzle on top. Either way works well. Place back on the wire rack to set. It should take anywhere between 10 minutes to 30 minutes to set. Now you are ready to enjoy.

  • Store them in an airtight container in the fridge.
  • You can dye the glaze if you want to.
  • You can also make these in a silicone doughnut mold if you want a doughnut shape instead of a stick shape. They will taste amazing either way.
