  • Sift flour, sugar, cocoa, baking powder, and salt together into a large bowl.

  • Whisk milk, egg, butter, oil, and 2 teaspoons vanilla extract together in a small bowl. Stir into flour mixture until just combined.

  • Spoon batter into the prepared donut pans, filling each well 3/4 full.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into a donut comes out clean, about 10 minutes. Remove from the oven and let cool for about 5 minutes; tap donuts out onto a sheet pan.

  • Combine confectioners' sugar, hot water, and remaining vanilla extract in a bowl to make the glaze.

  • Place parchment paper under a wire cooling rack. Transfer cooled donuts to the rack and coat in glaze, letting excess drip onto parchment paper; coat the donuts a second time if desired.

This is the closest I have ever gotten to store bought donuts. I swapped out part of the flour for more cocoa powder to make them chocolate. Also, for the frosting I used half cocoa powder and half powdered sugar to make the frosting chocolate. Also, I saran wrapped some of them and froze them. When you thaw them out overnight they are perfect. I will definitely be making these again! Love them! Read More

Don't expect them to taste like donut shop ones. But they are pretty tasty! Love how they're baked not fried. Had to play with icing a bit, bake them longer, and only made 20 VS 24 according to recipe. But these aren't faults of the recipe. We dropped choc chips and cinnamon chips in some. Left a few plain and not iced. Kids had a blast making and decorating. Something different than muffins and cupcakes. Will make again! Read More

These were very good, and my whole family liked them. They're fine without the glaze, however they were a little salty. These would be perfect if I added in a little less salt. Chocolate chips were a nice addition. They definitely need to be refrigerated, mine dried out a lot overnight. Read More

I added more cocoa to both the donuts and the icing. My husband said he'd pay good money for these donuts! Read More

This was an easy recipe to follow. Six cups of confectioner's sugar was too much glaze for us, so I ended up not using all the glaze I made. My husband and kids enjoyed the donuts. I will probably make this recipe again. Thank you! Read More
