Chocolate Donuts

Recently, I’ve had quite the obsession with baking donuts. I even went so far as to buy a donut pan. Obsession. I have pinned a jillion recipes on Pinterest and tried out a few (but with so-so results). Then I found this recipe on All Recipes and…we have a winner! These were yummy and cakey and oh-so-chocolatey. But, really, when do you ever go wrong with chocolate? They were delicious and now I’m on a donut roll (haha, get it? Roll? Yeah, that was bad.). More to come I’m sure!

Chocolate Buttermilk Cake Donuts

1 1/2 cups cake flour
1/2 cup cocoa powder
3/4 cup sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon kosher salt
3/4 cup buttermilk
2 eggs
2 tablespoons butter, melted
1 teaspoon vanilla

Preheat oven to 425. Spray donut pan with cooking spray.

In mixer, sift flour, cocoa, sugar, baking powder, and salt. Add buttermilk. Stir. Add butter and vanilla. Stir.  Add eggs one at a time, stirring in between each egg. Beat until just combined. Fill each donut mold about 2/3 full.

Bake for 7 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean. Cool while you make the chocolate glaze.

Chocolate Glaze
3/4 cup semisweet chocolate chips
3 tablespoons butter
1 tablespoon light corn syrup
1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
In a bowl combine chocolate chips, butter and corn syrup. Microwave in 30 second increments, stirring between each time until smooth. Do not overcook. Frost donuts, add sprinkles, and eat!
