Double Chocolate Donuts

If you are anything like me, you have a love for donut. But as I got older, I am not a fan of a lot of store bought donuts. I actually prefer homemade donuts. One they are not fried, they baked. All you need is a donut pan. You can get them at Target, Michaels, Walmart, Amazon or a kitchen store. Definitely invest in a donut pan or two.

Let’s talk about these chocolate donuts. Don’t be afraid to make these. I know your kids will love them and they will love making them with you. You will start by whisking the dry ingredients in one bowl. In another bowl you will whisk the wet ingredients, then add the melted butter to the wet ingredients. Next add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients. I use a piping bag to pipe the batter into the donut pan. You can use a freezer bag to pipe or scoop them into the donut pan. You just don’t want to fill them more than 2/3 full. These donuts do puff up. They are light and fluffy.

You don’t have to add sprinkles/jimmies, but I think jimmies make everything better.

Quality chocolate is very important in this recipe, I highly recommend a good cocoa. Some cocoas tend to dry baked goods out. Make sure not to fill the donuts more than ⅔ full. These donuts do puff up.
