Triple Chocolate Donuts

I have been seeing Baked Donuts all over
Pinterests and Blogs.

They look so very yummy, so
last week I purchased a donut pan
and made donuts!

Triple Chocolate Donuts | The Cookie Puzzle


I don't mean to toot my own horn, 
but these were GOOD!

I mean so good that Mr. Cookie Puzzle and Collin, 
ate them ALL!  Well, I ate a few too, but the majority
of them went in THEIR bellies!

I used a cake mix for these, so they 
whipped up very quickly.

I only had one, six cavity pan, so I could 
only make six at a time, but with a 7 minute baking 
time, I had a batch done pretty quickly.

I think I will be buying another pan soon, and 
playing around with other flavor combinations.

What is your favorite flavor donut?
Do you like them filled or un-filled?
Baked or Fried?

Ingredients
    For Donuts
    • 1(15.25 oz) Chocolate Cake Mix
    • 3/4 cup buttermilk see note
    • 2 eggs
    • 2 tablespoons melted butter
    • 1 cup mini chocolate chips
    • if you don't have buttermilk you can mix 2 teaspoons white vinegar + enough milk to make 3/4, let sit for 5 minutes before using
    For Glaze
    • 1 1/2 cups powdered sugar
    • 4 tablespoons cocoa powder, I used Hershey's Special Dark Cocoa
    • 2 teaspoons vanilla
    • 3 tablespoons milk, more or less if needed
    • chocolate sprinkles for garnish
    Instructions
    For Donuts
    Preheat oven to 425. Spray donut pan with cooking spray. Mix cake mix, buttermilk, eggs and melted butter until well combined. Fold in chocolate chips. Place batter in a large piping bag or ziploc bag, with small corner cut off. Fill the donut cavities about 2/3 full. Bake for 7 minutes. Let donuts sit in pan for 5 minutes before removing to cooling rack to cool completely.
    For Glaze
    Mix all glaze ingredients well in a medium bowl. If glaze appears too thick to coat donuts, add more milk. Dip each donut in glaze, place on cooling rack on top of a cookie sheet, top with chocolate sprinkles.

    2. The donuts look delicious. I think they might be illegal!

      1. I am pretty sure they are illegal Rachel...that is why we had to eat them all and destroy all the evidence.

    3. Donuts are something I have really wanted to make for awhile, but I miserably failed at bagels (3 times) so it got put on the back burner. These look so yummy though!

      1. You can make these even without a pan...a mini cupcake pan would work just fine!

    9. Congrats on your new donut pan! Homemade donuts are a one way road ;) I got a regular pan and a mini donut one a while ago, then quickly got one more of each because the waiting times are too annoying otherwise. My favorites are chocolate glazed donuts (the ones dunked in white icing), but I wouldn't mind these either :)
