I have always wanted to try making doughnuts at home, so it was fate that led me to a sturdy Wilton doughnut pan in the clearance aisle at Wal-Mart. Here is my adaptation of the homemade chocolate donut recipe by Tiffany at Thyme of Taste.
These homemade baked doughnuts are FAR healthier and lighter than your average doughnut. With a fluffy chocolate frosting that just melts on your tongue, you can satisfy even the biggest sweet tooth without all the guilt of your run-of-the-mill deep-fried glob of dough!
- 2 eggs
- 1 cup milk
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1/4 cup cocoa powder
- 1/3 cup sugar
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
- 2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips (1/2 cup for doughnut, 1 1/2 for glaze)
- Donut/Doughnut pan
Mix the eggs, milk, and olive oil together. Once blended together, add in the flour, cocoa powder, sugar, baking soda, baking powder, and just a half cup of chocolate chips. You may be mixing for a little while to get everything mixed well.
Pour half the batter into the donut/doughnut pan. Bake in the oven at 350 degrees F for 15 minutes. You’ll see them rise like no other. Once they have cooled for a minute or two, gently lift them from the pan.
Glaze: Melt chocolate chips on the stove using a double boiler. When the chocolate has melted, dip your doughnuts in and then let set to harden. I let the doughnuts set over night, covered on the counter. Throw toppings on if you’d like!Yum
