Baked Chocolate Donuts

I've always been a sucker for cake donuts.  Soft, with a bit of a crispy crust and tender cake-like inside.  Irresistible!

But I hardly ever fry anything.  And I don't eat fried food that often either.  So when I saw pans for baked donuts I figured my donut craving could be satisfied, guilt-free!

Baked Chocolate Donuts

  • 1 cup flour
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup cocoa powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 egg
  • 6 tablespoons sour cream
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil


Preheat oven to 375F degrees.

Sift the flour, sugar, cocoa powder, and baking soda into a medium mixing bowl.

Stir the wet ingredients into the dry until just combined.

Spoon into a greased donut pan.

Bake for 8 minutes or until the tops spring back when you touch them.

If you want to frost the donuts, let them cool in the pan before frosting.  I mixed some leftover chocolate cake frosting with a bit of milk to thin.  Then I glazed and added some sprinkles!  {Sometimes you just need sprinkles.}

I brought these to work, and in the time I went to get my camera..... this was all that was left.

And I had to nearly pry that last donut from someone's hand to get this shot.

That seems like a pretty strong recommendation for these tasty treats!
