baked chocolate doughnuts


This is my first foray into making doughnuts. Aren’t they cute?!


Doughnuts are one of those things that pro baking bloggers post about quite often, but I’ve just been blind to because you need a special tin to make them. But the stars aligned yesterday when I found myself in my favourite cookshop with a voucher. What’s a girl to do?!


I’ve recently found Benjamina from Bake Off’s blog, and she posted a recipe the other day for making chai-spiced baked doughnuts. YUM. Whilst baked doughnuts don’t quite taste the same as the fried kind, they are much easier, quicker, healthier and cleaner than their oily counterparts #winning


Simply whisk together all the ingredients, pipe into the tin, and bake for around 10 mins. I foresee a lot of doughnuts in my future…

Baked Chocolate Doughnuts

This recipe has been modified from this one by Pastry Affair.

The tin I used is this one.


  • 115g caster sugar
  • 160g plain flour
  • 25g cocoa powder
  • ½ tsp bicarb. soda
  • ½ tsp baking powder
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 2 tbsp unsalted butter, melted
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 80ml milk
  • 115g greek yogurt
  • 1 large egg {room temp.}
  • 125g icing sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1½ tbsp milk
  • sprinkles


Preheat your oven to 180*C.

Sieve the flour, sugar, cocoa, bicarb, baking powder and salt into a mixing bowl.

In a jug, mix together the melted butter, vanilla, milk, yogurt and egg.

Add the wet ingredients to the dry and whisk together until combined.

Grease the doughnut pan with a little butter, and then sprinkle some flour on top. Pat the tin to spread the flour out.

Spoon the mixture into a piping bag or a sandwich bag. Cut off the corner and pipe the mixture into the doughnut pan, about halfway full.

Bake for 10-12 minutes, then carefully remove and leave to cool on a wire rack.

To make the glaze, whisk together the icing sugar, vanilla and milk until smooth. Drizzle onto the doughnuts with a spoon, or pick the doughnuts up and dunk them in to get a more even coating. Top with sprinkles and leave to set.
