Baked Chocolate Glazed Doughnuts

A few months ago, I bought a doughnut baking pan.  I’ve been experimenting with different recipes, and most of them turned out doughnuts that were a little dry.  After some tweaking, I’ve come up with what I think is a pretty darn good baked doughnut; they’re moist, rich and finished with a delicious chocolate glaze.


  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup cocoa powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 3 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 1 egg
  • 1/3 cup brown sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2/3 cups buttermilk
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 4 tbsp cocoa powder
  • 2 tsp corn syrup
  • 3-4 tsp milk
  • sprinkles (optional)


  1. Preheat oven to 350F.  Grease a doughnut pan with cooking spray.
  2. In a mixing bowl, combine the flour, cocoa, baking soda and salt.
  3. In a separate bowl, whisk together the egg, sugar, vanilla and buttermilk.
  4. Add the dry ingredients to the wet and whisk until combined.  The batter will be quite thick.
  5. Spoon batter into the doughnut pan and bake for 8-10 minutes, until a toothpick inserted into the centre comes out clean.
  6. Cool the doughnuts completely on a wire rack.
  7. While the doughnuts cool, prepare glaze.
  8. In a small bowl, mix together the powdered sugar, cocoa, corn syrup and milk.  Whisk until the glaze is smooth and shiny.
  9. Dip the tops of the doughnuts into the glaze and add sprinkles, if using. These doughnuts taste best the day they are made.

*Yield: 6 doughnuts
