Description

These baked chocolate donuts are easy to make and so decadently delicious. Studded with little bites of melty chocolate inside and full of rich chocolate flavor, you won’t be missing the fryer for these!

Ingredients

  • FOR THE DONUTS:
  • 2-½ cups All-purpose Flour
  • 1 cup Packed Brown Sugar
  • ½ cups Granulated Sugar
  • ⅔ cups Unsweetened Cocoa Powder
  • 2 Tablespoons Espresso Powder Or Instant Coffee Granules
  • 1 teaspoon Baking Soda
  • 1 teaspoon Baking Powder
  • ½ teaspoons Salt
  • 2  Eggs, Lightly Beaten
  • 1 cup Buttermilk (or Regular, Whole Milk)
  • 1 cup Unsalted Butter, melted
  • 1 teaspoon Vanilla Extract
  • 1 bag (12 Oz. Size) Mini Semi-sweet Chocolate Chips
  • FOR THE GLAZE:
  • 4 cups Powdered Sugar
  • 2 Tablespoons Light Corn Syrup
  • 1 teaspoon Vanilla Extract
  • ¼ cups Milk

Preparation

Preheat oven to 375° F.

Generously spray a doughnut pan with cooking spray, set aside.

In a large bowl, whisk flour, brown sugar, cocoa powder, sugar, espresso powder, baking soda, baking powder, and salt. Make a well in the center of flour mixture, set aside.

In a medium bowl, combine egg, milk, melted butter, and vanilla.

Add wet ingredients to flour mixture, stirring until smooth. (Some folding may be required to incorporate all the flour mixture.) Stir in chocolate chips.

Spoon batter into pans, filling cavities about ¾ full (please see note below if you haven’t already!).

Bake for 8–15 minutes (baking times vary by pan type), until tops spring back when lightly touched or toothpick comes out with moist crumbs attached when inserted.

Remove from oven and let cool in pan for 5 minutes.

Invert doughnuts onto a cooling rack and let cool almost completely before glazing. During this time you can go ahead and re-spray pan and bake more doughnuts.

For the glaze:
In a medium bowl, combine powdered sugar, corn syrup, and vanilla. Add milk, whisking to combine (start with ¼ cup and add a little more if glaze is too thick).

Place wax or parchment paper under rack/s with doughnuts. Spread glaze generously over doughnut tops, or dip if making mini doughnuts(if desired, top with sprinkles). Let stand a few minutes to allow glaze to set before serving.

Notes:
• I have noticed that different pan types make a big difference in the baking times. Donuts baked in my non-stick pans tend to bake in about 8–10 minutes, while silicone takes a bit longer, about 15 or so minutes.
• If you are using a silicone donut pan, I find it best to let the donuts cool completely before trying to remove them, otherwise they tend to break easily.
• For mini doughnuts, I would recommend halving the recipe, unless you need more than 36 doughnuts (the recipe as is would yield about 70+). For a mini doughnut pan, fill cavities ½ full instead of ¾. Bake for 6–8 minutes.
