Mini Glazed Chocolate Donuts

So it would seem I have motivation to bake tonight and I’m thinking donuts sound pretty awesome right now.

Mini glazed chocolate donuts!!!

After scouring Pinterest for about 30 min (ok, really it was more like 50 minutes because I’m a Pinterest addict) I found this recipe and decided to give it a whirl.

This took me about 60 minutes from start to finish, including the glaze. The recipe yielded about 35-40 mini donuts.

Donut Dough:
*1 cup flour
*1/2 cup sugar
*1/4 cup cocoa powder
*1/4 cup mini chocolate chips
*1/2 teaspoon baking soda
*1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
*1 egg
*6 tablespoons sour cream
*1/4 cup milk
*1/4 cup vegetable oil

Glaze:
*1 1/4 cups powdered sugar
*3 tablespoons milk
*1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.

In a medium mixing bowl, combine the flour, sugar, cocoa powder, chocolate chips, and baking soda.

In a small (separate) bowl, whisk together the vanilla extract, egg, sour cream, milk, and vegetable oil. Whisk until well combined and the liquid becomes creamy.

      

Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and combine well. There will be a few lumps left in the dough.

Grease a mini muffin pan and spoon the donut dough into the pan, about 1/2 full.

Bake for 8-10 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out clean when entered into the center of the muffins.

Cool the donuts on a cooling rack.

In a small saucepan, whisk together the sugar, milk, and vanilla extract over low heat for 5-10 minutes.  Once the mixture begins to bubble, remove from heat.

Dip the tops of each donut into the glaze and place back on the wire rack to finish cooling.

     

Enjoy!

Baker’s Notes:
These donuts are surprisingly sweet and airy despite their small stature. The density is more cake-like than donut, but they’re very yummy for a baked donut. I made some changes to the original recipe‘s glaze found on Buns in My Oven’s site.
