For fans of the classic animated films, these festive gingerbread Disney donuts might be an ideal sweet dessert to whip up. The powdered sugar beignets are creatively shaped to look like the iconic cartoon character Mickey Mouse making them an ideal treat for kids and adults alike to enjoy.
These holiday treats are made from a mixture of ginger, cloves, nutmeg, molasses, flour and yeast to create a donut dough that is light and fluffy, but emulates that quintessential gingerbread flavor. The donuts are pressed into mouse-shaped rounds, fried and decorated with powdered sugar. The dish can also be served with an egg nog cream for dipping.
The recipe is shared via the Disney Food Blog and inspired by the same Mickey Mouse gingerbread donuts served at the Cafe Orleans in Disneyland.
