Baked Chocolate Donuts

Leah looked at me the other morning and stared into my eyes very seriously and said “mom, I need donuts.” I felt that in my soul because I also know what it’s like to need donuts. So, guess what we did? We made donuts. I can’t let a girl who needs donuts down.

The best part about these donuts (well, there are lots of best parts) but first is that they are so easy to make. Mix everything together, one bowl, no mixer required. Next best thing is that these are baked. No frying so your house won’t smell like an oil pit and they are better for you, basically healthy. 🙂

Then on top of the chocolate cake donut, you have an easy and sweet vanilla glaze that soaks into the donut to create a perfect donut bit.

Full of chocolate flavor and really hits the spot when you NEED a donut. Also, don’t worry if you don’t have a donut pan. Use a muffin pan and just make big donut holes. They still taste amazing.

Check out the recipe below and let me know what you think!
