I lie in bed for ages some nights before I fall asleep.

I have the usual mum thoughts the don’t forget this for tomorrow, must buy x, must do y.

Then there’s household stuff and a few random worries but my brain also thinks that it’s a good time to get creative.

‘Oh, you’re not doing anything right now, what a great time to brainstorm!’

So it was at about 11 o’clock one night that I came up with the idea for Easter egg topped donuts.

It then turned to graffiti donuts which turned to rainbow graffiti Easter donuts.

This is one of those recipes where I wish I had super-pro photography skills.

I don’t think I quite do them justice.

They’d make a rather pretty feature on an Easter buffet.

You could even make a fancy edible table runner with them lined up down the middle.

Ooh you could even do mini versions.

Use little solid eggs instead of the big hollow ones.

OR you could totally do a giant version with a ring-shaped cake tin and a giant egg (use the same recipe and bake for 30-35 minutes).

Welcome to the inner workings of my brain.

They’re a sugar-overload in one bite.

I most definitely wouldn’t be eating them every day (and I made them when my son was at daycare so he wouldn’t see them or we would have had one hell of an argument!) but when is there a good excuse for a bit of a sugar hit if not Easter?

Use natural food colouring to avoid the nasty colour craziness that ensues after.

My sister and I used to eat Easter eggs before breakfast on Easter Sunday.

Nearly every year there would be a competition where one of us would dare the other to see how many of those hollow Cadbury Easter eggs – like the one on top of the donut – you could fit in your mouth at once.

I think the record may have been four but I can’t remember who set it.

I’m pretty sure Easter Monday was always spent with a sugar hangover.

Now I’m a ‘grown up’ I’m a little more contained although I do still have a soft spot for Lindt Easter eggs (the red ones with the gooey centre).

This year will be our first Easter living at the beach where we normally go for Easter holidays so at home we will be.

Whatever you’re doing I hope you have a wonderful Easter!

If you’re after something a little healthier this Easter you might like my healthy chocolate Easter eggs or jelly Easter eggs.

This beautiful rainbow table would be the perfect setting for them.

Rainbow grafiti Easter donuts

Yield: 5
Prep Time: 30 minutes
Cook Time: 15 minutes
Total Time: 45 minutes


  • 60g(2oz) butter
  • ½ cup raw sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 cup self-raising flour
  • ½ cup milk
  • Food colouring
  • 2 cups icing sugar
  • Water
  • Food colouring


  1. Pre-heat the oven to 175C(375F) fan-forced and grease a 6-hole donut tin.
  2. In the bowl of an electric mixer, beat the butter and sugar together until creamy.
  3. Add the egg and mix is through then scrape down the sides.
  4. Add the vanilla and half the flour and beat just until it starts to combine then with the beater going add half the milk.
  5. Repeat with the remaining flour and milk.
  6. Scrape the sides and give it one last mix.
  7. Divide the mixture into as many bowls as you want colours and use food coloring to colour the batter.
  8. Using about half a teaspoon of batter at a time, blob it into 5 of the donut moulds alternating between colours.
  9. When you have used all the batter, use a toothpick to gently swirl the colours together.
  10. Bake for 13-15 minutes or until a cake tester inserted in a donut comes out clean.
  11. Leave them to rest in the tin for 5 minutes then gently remove from the tin onto a wire rack and let them cool completely.
  12. To make the icing, add enough water to the icing sugar to make it into a drizzle. You want it just runny enough that it will trickle off the spoon when you scoop some up but not so runny that it falls straight off the spoon.
  13. Divide it into a bowl for each colour then colour them as desired.
  14. Place a chocolate egg on top of each cooled donut then splatter with different coloured icing until you get the desired effect.
  15. Leave to dry then serve.
  16. Best eaten on the day of baking but ok the next day too.
