Bake Chocolate Donuts

 dsc_0769

From time to time, I have a cravings for donut, sometimes even in the odd hours of the day. I like donuts, the only problem I have is I don’t like the idea of fried Donuts. They are tasty of course, but I had been trying to get away with frying as much as possible.

So, this recipe is the answer to my problem. Donuts, bake NOT fried. Simple not complicated, quick and easy. What is better than a homemade baked donuts? vThis donuts taste so good, it’s like a chocolate cake in a donut form. The texture is soft and moist. Because it is baked, this donut is very light. I easily finished 3 pieces in one seating! Dangerous! You really have to try this. Bake certainly is a good option, just like my Bake Churros. Let’s get started!

 Ingredients:
  • 1 cup (5oz/150g) all-purpose flour
  • ½ cup (1.5oz/45g) unsweetened cocoa powder
  • ½ teaspoons baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • ⅓ cup (2oz/60g) brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons granulated white sugar
  • pinch salt
  • 4 tablespoons (2oz/60g) butter, melted
  • 2 small eggs
  • ¾ cup (6oz/180g) sour cream (buttermilk or yogurt)
  • Sprinkles, nuts , chocolates for decoration – optional

Ingredients for Chocolate Glaze:

  • 2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1½ cups powdered sugar
  • 3-4 tablespoons milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract (optional)
  • pinch of salt

Other Frosting Option:

I tried using both frosting and I liked the Chocolate Ganache frosting better. It has a richer thick chocolate flavor.

Instructions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350oF(180oC). Make your donut tin with oil or butter.
  2. Sift together the flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, baking powder, both sugars and salt.
  3. In a separate jug mix together egg, sour cream and melted butter
  4. Add the wet ingredients into the dry and gently mix to a smooth batter.
  5. Add batter to a piping bag or ziplock bag. Cut a corner off to pipe into donut pan wells. Fill them no higher than ⅔ of the way up so they don’t bake over.
  6. Bake donuts for 10-12 minutes or until they are firm and spring back when you touch them. Pop them out of the donut pan and onto a cooling rack to cool until warm to the touch.

To make the Glaze:

  1. Sift together the icing sugar and cocoa powder. Whisk in the milk, vanilla and whisk until the glaze is smooth. You may need to add additional powdered sugar or milk depending on the consistency you like. Dip the top of each donut in the glaze. Serve it warm or at room temperature. Store in an airtight container for up to 3 days.
