I saw a recipe for chocolate glazed cake donuts and couldn’t wait to try it. I ordered a donut pan and as soon as it arrived, I whipped up a batch of these delicious donuts!   My sister just ordered a donut pan, and her question to me was: “Can I make donuts like you?”  Of course she can and you can too. I’ll guide you through this easy recipe step by step!

What a fun morning in the kitchen!

Ingredients:

For the donuts:

1 cup flour
1/2 cup sugar
1/4  cup cocoa powder
1/2 teaspoon  baking soda
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 egg
6 tablespoons sour  cream
1/4 cup milk
1/4 cup vegetable oil
For the  glaze:
1 cup powdered sugar
1 Tablespoon of vanilla extract (I make my own…check out my post on how to make vanilla.)
5-6 Tablespoons of heavy whipping cream (whole milk can also be used)

Directions:

To make the donuts:

  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  • In  a medium mixing bowl, combine the flour, sugar, cocoa powder, and baking soda.
  • In a small bowl, beat together the vanilla, egg, sour  cream, milk, and oil.
  • Stir the wet ingredients into the dry until just  combined.
  • Put batter into a large Ziploc bag and snip end off.
  • Pipe in a greased donut pan.
  • Bake for 8 to 10 minutes or until the tops spring back  when you touch them. Let the donuts cool on a wire rack before glazing.

To make the glaze:

  • Combine powdered sugar and vanilla in a bowl.  Add a tablespoon of whipping cream at a time until you reach desired consistency. Adding more cream will thin out your icing, so you can dip the donuts!
