Chocolate Frosted Donuts
April 16, 2015
These chocolate frosted donuts are baked, not fried – and are so simple to make! Cover them completely in sprinkles and you’ll find yourself eating more than just one.
- Prep: 30 mins
- Cook: 10 mins
- Yields: 8 donuts
For the donuts:
Whisk the egg, brown sugar, milk, and yogurt together until smooth. Add the melted butter and vanilla, whisking until fully combined. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and stir until just combined. Do not overmix. The batter will be very thick.
Spoon the batter into the donut cavities—I highly recommend using a large zipped-top bag for ease. Cut a corner off the bottom of the bag and pipe the batter into each donut cup, filling 2 ∕ 3 –3 ∕ 4 of the way full.
For the chocolate glaze:
Place the chocolate chips, butter, corn syrup, and water in a medium bowl. Melt in 20 second increments int he microwave, stirring after each time, until completely melted and smooth. Dip the tops of the donuts into the chocolate glaze and then cover with sprinkles. I simply poured the sprinkles into a deep bowl and dipped the tops of the donuts into it. You'll likely have leftover ganache. It's great on ice cream!
