Double Chocolate Baked Cake Donuts with Peanut Butter Glaze

by Jenn

How does a Double Chocolate Baked Cake Donuts with Peanut Butter Glaze recipe sound?  It sounds excellent in my opinion, lol.  Then again it cold be because I made the donut recipe for my family the other morning.  It is GOOD, so far the best baked donuts I have done.  I seriously think the trick was adding chocolate milk rather than water and regular milk.  Here is the recipe I hope you enjoy it.

Okay, here is the recipe I hope you enjoy it.

Here is everything you’ll need to make these super yummy cake donuts with a delicious peanut butter glaze:

Donuts

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 4 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • ½ teaspoons salt
  • 1large egg
  • 1 ½ TruMoo Chocolate Milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 tablespoons butter (melted)
  • 1 ½ to 2 cups dark chocolate chips (depending upon how much you like chocolate)

Peanut Butter Glaze:

  • 1 ½ – 2 cups powder sugar
  • ¼ cup milk (you can also use TruMoo Chocolate Milk to give it a chocolatey flavor)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  •  1 ½ cups creamy peanut butter

Double Chocolate Baked Cake Donuts with Peanut Butter GlazeReady to make the best baked chocolate cake donuts EVER! Awesome let’s get started:

Donuts

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees and prepare your donut pan(s).  If you have a pan for donut holes you can use that as well, just to mix things up a bit.

  • In a large bowl (I used my KitchenAid Mixer bowl) combine the dry ingredients – flour, sugar, cocoa powder, chocolate chips, salt and baking powder.
  • In a small to medium sized bowl combine egg, vanilla, TruMoo Chocolate Milk and butter and whisk together
  • Pour the wet ingredients into your large bowl with dry ingredients.  If you have a mixer, I will use that on medium for about 1 minute then turn it down to low until everything is mixed completely.

  • Using a spoon, or if you’re a smart cookie, you can use a baggie and pipe the batter into the donut pan.  Yea, I didn’t think of it either; you can thank my youngest daughter who came to tell me that when I was almost done lol.  It would have been so much easier and a lot less messy had she been like 5 minutes earlier lol.  Either way, as long as the batter ends up in your donut pan you are doing great. Be sure to fill each donut cup about ¾ full.  It’s okay if they rise above the pan, just as long as they don’t overflow.
  • Bake for about 12 to 15 minutes or until toothpick ready.  To see if they are toothpick ready just grab a toothpick and stick in the middle of the donut.  If the toothpick comes out clean, they are prepared.

  • Remove from oven and allow donuts to cool for a few minutes, flip the pan over on a wire rack and allow to cool completely so you can add a beautiful peanut butter glaze.

Peanut Butter Glaze

  • In a medium sized bowl, preferably one that you’ll be able to dip the donuts into, combine all ingredients but the peanut butter and whisk until mixed completely.  I would start out with 1 ½ cups powder sugar, and if needed, you can add more to make it thicker.  If you need to add more powder sugar only all 1/3 cup at a time until you get desired thickness.
  • Add peanut butter to the powder sugar mixture and mix completely.

  • Dip one side of your donut into the glaze, make sure it’s covered well.  I normally dip mine about half way, especially with this chocolate and peanut butter combo.  YUMMY!

  • A place donut with glaze back on the wire rack with the glazed side up and allow glaze to harden.

  • If you like, you can melt the rest of your chocolate chips and pour them into a piping bag so you can pipe on a few chocolate lines.

Baked doughnuts? These are something I’ve never heard of, let alone tried, till now, that is! I’m a peanut butter freak and these look like something I’d be able to manage!
