directions

  • Cake:

  • 1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray or grease with vegetable shortening donut pan(s).
  • 2. Into a large bowl, sift together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, cocoa powder and salt; set aside.
  • 3. In another large bowl, mix together the sugar and egg. Add the melted butter, melted chocolate, vanilla extract and buttermilk; mix well to thoroughly combine.
  • 4. Gradually add the dry ingredients in the first bowl to the wet mixture, mixing just until combined.
  • 5. With a spoon or a pastry bag, carefully fill prepared donut pan(s) with the batter, filling each opening about two-thirds full (or you could use a standard ice cream scoop, filling scant-level; dollop on each donut opening and with wet finger, open up the hole, pushing the batter to the sides evenly).
  • 6. Bake for 12-15 minutes (donuts should spring back with touched lightly).
  • 7. Cool completely on wire rack.
  • Prepare icing:

  • 2 tablespoons water.
  • 1 tablespoon buttermilk.
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract.
  • 2 cups powdered sugar.
  • With a wire whisk, combine all ingredients until smooth.
  • 8. Dip the donut tops in the icing, letting excess fall back into the bowl (be careful not to let crumbs get in the icing). Let dipped donuts dry/set on rack.
  • In the alternative, you could use a homemade or canned cream cheese frosting to top the donuts.

    I thought these were a little dry, but I may have overmixed them. Flavor was great! I used the icing and topped with some sprinkles. Icing ingredients are not listed in the ingredients section so make sure you have those on hand!
