Baked Chocolate Donuts


Sunday is family day and we always start the day with a nice breakfast together. This morning my 4 year old requested chocolate donuts, so that’s what I baked.

1 c all-purpose flour
1/4 c unsweetened cocoa powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 c buttermilk
1/2 c coconut palm sugar or brown sugar
1 egg
4 tsp coconut palm oil or butter, melted
2 TBSP coffee
1 tsp vanilla

Heat oven to 325.

Coat donut pan with nonstick cooking spray.

In large bowl, whisk flour, cocoa, baking soda and salt.

In small bowl, whisk milk, sugar, egg, butter, coffee, and vanilla until smooth. Add milk mixture to flour mixture; whisk until blended and smooth.

Fill each doughnut cup approximately 3/4 full. Bake for 13 minutes or until doughnuts spring back when touched. Allow to cool slightly before removing from pan.

Dust with confectioner’s sugar or spread a little Nutella on top and add sprinkles.

Makes 6.
