I topped mine with Reese's Pieces which made the donuts SO much better. They could also be topped with sprinkles, crushed nuts, or just eaten as they are.
Double Chocolate Baked Donuts
These donuts won't last more than two days in your house! They are moist and fluffy and so, so sweet!!
The batter should be very thick, and form stiff peaks after whisking.
I find using silicone donut pans the easiest, especially with the removal process.
For the icing, I blended all the ingredients in my magic bullet and it made the icing so creamy! I will definitely be using this trick again.
- 9 Donuts
- Prep time: 15 Minutes|Cook time: 10 Minutes|Total time: 25 Minutes
- Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
- Combine the flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, baking soda and the salt in a bowl.
- In a separate bowl whisk together the large egg with white sugar until well fully combined.
- To the egg & sugar mixture, add in the milk, yogurt (or sour cream), melted butter & the vanilla extract, and whisk until combined.
- To the wet bowl, slowly mix in the dry mixture and combine fully. Remember the batter will be VERY thick.
- Fill the donut pan, but leave 1/4 of the donut free because they will rise.
- Place the donuts in the oven once it reaches 350, and bake for 8-12 minutes (until a toothpick comes out clean). Mine were done after 10.5 minutes.
- Let the donuts cool in the pan for 5-10 minutes, then remove them and place on a cooling rack.
- While you're waiting for the donuts to cool, whisk together all of the icing ingredients. The consistency should be fairly thick, if you would like it thinner, add more milk.
- Once the donuts completely cool, drizzle the glaze over top.
