Baked Chocolate Doughnuts

Baked Chocolate Doughnuts

My mom loves chocolate doughnuts so while my parents are here visiting I decided to make her some homemade doughnuts.  This recipe came with the doughnut pan from Wilton, they were chocolatey goodness in the shape of a ring!

1 3/4 cups cake or all purpose flour, sifted

1/4 cup cocoa

3/4 cup sugar

2 teaspoons baking powder

1 teaspoon salt

3/4 cup buttermilk

2 eggs, lightly beaten

2 tablespoons oil

1 teaspoon vanilla

1  Preheat oven to 425.  Spray doughnut pan with nonstick cooking spray.

2  Sift together flour, cocoa, sugar, baking powder and salt.  Add buttermilk, eggs, oil and vanilla and mix gently until just combined.  Fill each doughnut cup approximately 1/2 full (about 2 tablespoons of batter).  (I did this by putting the batter in a large Ziploc bag and then snipping the corner off and piping it into the pan.)

3  Bake 4 – 5 minutes or until top of doughnuts spring back with touched.  Let cool in pan 3 minutes before removing.  Repeat with remaining batter.  Finish doughnuts with desired toppings.  Doughnuts are best when served fresh.

Yield:  24 doughnuts

I topped these with chocolate glaze and chocolate jimmies, recipe for chocolate glaze found here but this doughnut recipe came with a raspberry glaze recipe so I thought I’d include it now for future use.

Raspberry Glaze

1 cup powdered sugar

1/4 cup seedless raspberry jam

1 tablespoon milk

pink food coloring, optional

Stir together sugar, jam and milk and mix until sugar is completely dissolved.  Mix in color if desired.  Use immediately to glaze doughnuts.
