GLAZED CHOCOLATE CAKE DONUTS

Classic chocolate cake donuts you can make at home!
 It’s finally starting to subside though but it was pretty much the worst week ever. I swear, dry socket pain goes neck in neck with child birth – possibly even worse! Since I’ve been feeling better, I’ve been slowly getting back into the baking groove and I’ve had such a craving for a good chocolate cake donut. So here we are… glazed chocolate cake donuts!

GLAZED CHOCOLATE CAKE DONUTS

Ingredients:
Chocolate Donuts:
  1. 2 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  2. 3/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  3. 1 tsp baking soda
  4. 2 tsp baking powder
  5. 3/4 cup brown sugar
  6. 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  7. 1/4 tsp nutmeg
  8. pinch salt
  9. 8 tbs unsalted butter, melted
  10. 3 eggs
  11. 1 1/2 cup buttermilk
Glaze:
  1. 1 1/2 cup confectioner's sugar
  2. 1 tsp vanilla extract
  3. 3-4 tbs milk
Instructions:
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease a donut pan very well and set aside.
  • Whisk flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, baking powder, both sugars, nutmeg and salt very well. Add melted butter, eggs and milk and beat until mixture is smooth. Add batter to a ziploc bag and cut a corner off to pipe into donut pan wells. Fill them no higher than 2/3 of the way up so they don't bake over. Bake donuts for 12-13 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.
