These donuts won't last more than two days in your house! They are moist and fluffy and so, so sweet!!

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.

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.

  • 1/4 cup of cocoa powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp of baking powder
  • 1 cup of flour
  • 1/8 tsp of salt
  • 2.5 tbsp of melted butter
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/2 cup of white sugar
  • 1/3 cup of milk
  • 1/4 cup of greek yogurt or sour cream
  • 1/2 tsp of vanilla
  • 1/2 cup of powdered sugar
  • 1 tbsp of milk
  • 1 tsp of vanilla
  • 2 tbsp of melted unsalted butter
  • 4 tbsp of melted semi-sweet chocolate (melt chocolate chips, then measure out the 4 tbsps)

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.

    Could stevia be used instead of sugar? They sound delicious.

    Even though I have not tried these yet, they sound delicious. My questions are: 1) Since I don't have a donut pan, can i use mini Bundt pans? 2) IF so, should i just fill about 1/2 full since I think the individual Bundt pan would hold more than a donut mold would hold?

    Thank you, for all answers. :)

      Yes, you could totally use a bundt pan! And I agree, I would only fill it up about 1/2 way full!
