Baked Cake Donuts with Chocolate Glaze

Happy Valentine's Day!

This year I promised Ethan I would make him a special breakfast, because he insisted on making me dinner! I have been wanting to make baked donuts and these were perfect. They were ready in less than 20 minutes, making this a do-able recipe for a weekday morning. These are so delicious and I have a feeling he will be wanting them all the time before he leaves for the day.

These are made with ingredients you most likely already have in your pantry. Your wallet thanking you for not stopping at the donut shop on the way to school or work. Bonus, they are baked=healthy right? Ha, well on Valentine's Day, it is okay! Indulge and make these sweet treats for you and your sweeties.

For the Donuts:
1/3 cup of milk + 2 tablespoons
1 1/2 teaspoons of Vinegar
3/4 cup of Flour
2 tablespoons of Cornstarch
1 teaspoon of Baking Powder
1/2 teaspoon of Salt
1/3 cup of Sugar
1 Egg, lightly beaten
1 tablespoon of Butter, melted

Chocolate Glaze:
1/2 cup of Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips
1 tablespoon of Canola Oil
2 teaspoons of Corn Syrup
1 teaspoon of Water


First, pre-heat your oven to 425 degrees. Lightly grease your donut pan.

Now, melt your butter in the microwave. Set aside. Mix the milk and vinegar in a small bowl and set aside.

Next, sift the flour, cornstarch, baking powder, salt, and sugar together.

Now, stir the egg and butter into the milk mixture. Now pour all into the dry ingredients and stir until just mixed.

Evenly distribute the batter into your donut pan. Bake for 7-8 minutes.

Let cool for 1-2 minutes on the pan and then on a wire cooling rack.

When they are cool, make the glaze. In a microwave-safe bowl, add the chocolate chips, oil, corn syrup, and water together. Microwave on 30 second intervals until melted.

Dip half of the donut into the glaze and top with sprinkles.


Happy Cooking,
