I recently purchased a doughnut baking mold, and ever since then I'm on the lookout for the perfect baked donuts recipes. I have made a couple, but this chocolate version is a real showstopper and indulgent treat. The recipe makes for 6 Donuts, which is conveniently the number of molds you get in the baking pan. It's a better alternative then frying Donuts, which usually adds lots of oil and calories. Leave the cocoa powder out and add some vanilla bean paste to the mix and you have excellent vanilla Donuts. You can really make lots of variations with this recipe.
IngredientsFor the Chocolate Donuts
130 gr (1 cup) of flour
50 gr (1/4 cup) of sugar
2 tbsp dark brown sugar (muscovado sugar)
30 gr (1/4 cup) of unsweetened cocoa powder
1/2 tsp of baking powder
1/2 tsp of baking soda
1/2 tsp of salt
120 ml (1/2 cup) of milk (add more if mix is to dry)
1/2 tsp of vanilla extract
1 tbsp of butter, melted
For the Glaze:
180 gr (1 cup) of dark or milk chocolate, chopped up or use chips
120 ml (1/2 cup) milk or cream
4. After the Donuts have come out the oven, let them cool on a wire rack for 5 minutes, then take them out and let them cool more.
Enjoy your donuts!
