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.
Double Chocolate Baked Cake Donuts with Peanut Butter Glaze
Here is everything you’ll need to make these super yummy cake donuts with a delicious peanut butter glaze:
- 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
- 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.
My girls get super excited when they see it in the fridge because they love it too, especially HOT with a few big heart marshmallows or used to make our Strawberry S’mores Trifle Recipe.
