For the Doughnuts:

  • 2 tablespoons active dry yeast
  • 1/2 cup warm water
  • 1 teaspoon granulated sugar
  • 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar, warm
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter, room temperature
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • Canola oil (for frying)

For the Glaze:

  • 1 1/2 cups confectioner’s sugar
  • 1/2 cup whipping cream
  • Rainbow sprinkles

For the Rainbow Filling:

  • 2 1/2 cups vanilla pudding
  • Rainbow food coloring


  1. Prepare the Doughnuts:
    • In a small bowl, dissolve the yeast in warm water with 1 teaspoon of granulated sugar. Leave it alone for about 5 minutes until it develops a frothy texture.
    • In a large mixing bowl, combine the flour, warm granulated sugar, eggs, butter, and salt. Add the yeast mixture and knead until a smooth dough forms.
    • Cover the bowl with a damp cloth and let the dough rise in a warm place for about 1 hour, or until it has doubled in size.
  2. Shape and Fry the Doughnuts:
    • On a lightly floured surface, roll out the dough to about 1/2 inch thickness.
    • Cut out doughnut shapes using a doughnut cutter or two round cutters of different sizes.
    • Heat canola oil in a deep fryer or large pot to 350°F (175°C).
    • Fry the doughnuts in batches, turning them once, until golden brown on both sides. This process should take around 2-3 minutes for each side.
    • Remove the doughnuts with a slotted spoon and drain on paper towels.
  3. Prepare the Rainbow Filling:
    • Divide the vanilla pudding into separate bowls, one for each color you plan to use.
    • Add a few drops of rainbow food coloring to each bowl and mix until the desired color is achieved.
    • Transfer each colored pudding to a piping bag.
  4. Fill the Doughnuts:
    • Using a pastry bag fitted with a filling tip, fill each doughnut with a different color of pudding, creating a rainbow effect when cut open.
  5. Make the Glaze:
    • In a medium bowl, whisk together the confectioner’s sugar and whipping cream until smooth.
    • Dip the top of each doughnut into the glaze and place on a wire rack to let the excess drip off.
    • Immediately sprinkle with rainbow sprinkles while the glaze is still wet.
  6. Serve:
    • Allow the glaze to set for a few minutes before serving.
    • Enjoy your Colorburst Filled Doughnuts with a cup of coffee or as a fun, colorful treat anytime.
