Chocolate Baked Buttermilk Donuts

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by MJMommy13

This is a recipe adapted from the recipe that came on the back of the Nordicware dounut pan I bought at Target. I glaze them with my recipe Yummy Vanilla Glaze. Your donut yield will depend on how full you fill the donut cups in the pan. Somewhere between 1/2 and 2/3 is about right.

This was my first try at chocolate baked donuts, and we liked this recipe a lot. It was a tad drier than the other cake donuts I've made before, but still quite tasty. I cut the recipe in half, and that made the 6 donuts my pan will allow. I also sprinkled them with powdered sugar in lieu of frosting. Thanks for sharing the recipe!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Heat oven to 375°F Grease and flour pan. Sift together flour, sugar, baking powder, nutmeg, and salt in a large mixing bowl. Stir in buttermilk, eggs, butter and vanilla; beat until just combined. Fill each well 2/3 full. Bake 10-12 minutes, until the top of the donuts spring back when lightly touched. Cool 5 minutes in pan; invert onto cooling rack and cool completely. Glaze and decorate if desired.
