Anyone else a donut fan? I love making baked donuts because they are so easy and such a fun treat. Nothing beats a true Krispy Kreme donut…but these are pretty darn good for homemade.

These are cake donuts and I find refrigerating is not the best way to store them. Instead keep in a sealed container like a cake plate to keep them fresh and soft. The first glaze really keeps them moist but if you reheat them for a few seconds they are a-mazing.donut-1

Chocolate Double-Glazed Baked Donuts
Makes twelve donuts

Batter:

  • 2 cups Flour
  • 3/4 cup Sugar
  • 1 1/2 tsp Baking Powder
  • 1/4 tsp nutmeg
  • 1/4 tsp Cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp Salt
  • 3/4 cup Milk
  • 1/4 tsp Lemon juice or White Vinegar
  • 2 beaten Eggs
  • 2 tbsp melted Butter

Powdered Sugar Glaze

  • 2 cup Powdered Sugar
  • 3 tbsp Milk
  • 1/4 tsp Vanilla

Chocolate Glaze

  • 1.5 cups Ghirardelli melting wafers

Directions

  1. Add lemon juice to milk (this is a substitute for buttermilk).
  2. Preheat oven to 425. Spray Donut pan with non-stick spray
  3. Combine dry donut ingredients in large bowl.
  4. Add milk, eggs and butter.
  5. Stir just until well mixed.
  6. Fill each ring of the donut pan about 2/3 but make sure it doesn’t top center hole. (The dough is thick so I often use a spoon to make it easier
  7. Bake about 8 minutes, until fully baked. They should round up a bit
  8. Let cool then remove from pan and set on cooling rack.
  9. In a small bowl just big enough to dip donuts, combine glaze ingredients and stir until smooth
  10. Dip top of donut in glaze.
  11.  Return to cooling rack. (You may want to use a paper towel or wax paper under the rack to pick up any drops)
  12. Wait a few minutes for the glaze to set.
  13. Follow directions on the bag of Melting Wafers
  14. Dip top of donut in chocolate glaze– let cool, and enjoy!
