The Sweetest Cinco de Mayo Recipe Ever

Posted by Bikini Owner

This donut recipe incorporates all of the classic components of a traditional margarita: tequila, fresh lime juice, and a citrusy-sweet finishing note of agave and orange by way of an ever-so-easy glaze.

The alcohol of the tequila is baked off while these delights are nestled in the oven, but it leaves behind an amazing flavor sensation without the bite...or Seis de Mayo hangover.

If you don't have a donut pan on hand, these can easily be made as cupcakes or mini cupcakes. For my garnish, I used a twist of lime and a sliver of a candied orange.



Prep time: 10 minutes | Cook time: 10-12 minutes | Total time: 20-22 minutes | Servings: 12 donuts


½ cup warm water

3 tablespoons ground flaxseed

⅓ cup light olive or canola oil ⅓ cup agave nectar

1 oz. tequila blanco

juice of 1 lime

zest of 1 lime

1 cup BG Bakes Gluten Free All-Purpose Flour

½ teaspoon baking soda

½ teaspoon fine sea salt

DIRECTIONS Preheat oven to 375 degrees and generously grease a donut pan with allergy friendly oil. In a small mixing bowl, combine water and flaxseed.

Whisk well and set aside for a minimum of 5 minutes. This will serve as your “egg” in the recipe. In a large mixing bowl, combine flax "egg" with oil, agave, tequila, lime juice, and lime zest; whisk until well combined.

Sift in flour, baking soda, and salt; mix until well combined. Batter should be smooth and slightly thick. Spoon batter into greased pan, evenly filling each mold to ⅔ full.

Bake for 10-12 minutes or until cake tester comes out clean. Donuts should spring to touch. Allow donuts to cool in pan for 5 minutes, then transfer to wire rack for remainder of cooling.

When eaten, texture should be spongey and moist. Top with Orange Agave Glaze [recipe below] and garnish festively.
