My 7-year-old daughter is addicted to the Netflix show Nailed It. It is her happy place to sit coloring and crafting and watch other people try to cook, and mostly fail. With her new addiction has also come a renewed interest in all things baking. This week she told me that we needed to create a, “really special something.” And you all know, that my most special somethings are donuts.  So today I am excited to introduce you to something never before seen anywhere (believe me we looked)….. Grinch Lemon Donuts!

Easy to make #Grinch lemon donuts that will make your heart happy!




These really, really were easy to make, but you do need a donut pan. This is the one I use. Now let’s talk about what else you will need.

Donut Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cups flour
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 large egg
  • 6 oz of sour cream
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 2 to 4  tbs lemon extract- Here is a little trick. Taste the batter as you add the lemon extract and get it to the flavoring you like. I like a lot of lemon-flavor!

Donut Topping Ingredients




  • Pre-heat oven to 350.
  • In bowl, add all dry ingredients and stir to combine.
  • Add wet ingredients and stir everything until just combined.
  • Spray your donut pan with non-stick cooking spray and set aside.
  • Spoon your batter into wells of the donut pan.
  • Place in oven and cook for about 10 minutes or until donuts spring back when touched.
  • Remove from oven and let cool in pan for a few minutes before carefully moving to a wire rack to cool completely.
  • Once the donuts are cool melt about 2 cups of the candy melts in a microwave safe bowl for about  minute.
  • Mix the candy melts with a spoon thoroughly to ensure that the melt consistency is ready to drizzle on your donuts.
  • Drizzle chocolate candy melt mixture on top of donuts.
  • Before the melted chocolate sets place a single red candy heart on the bottom right corner of the donut.
  • Enjoy!

  1. Omg, these donuts are absolutely perfect for all the grinch lovers, and definitely going to have to try to make them for my girls who love the movie. So, thank you so much for sharing here with me :)

  2. I love the show Nailed it! And I love this. You nailed it, like for real, and not in a way to laugh about because it’s not good. In fact, they are perfect!
