Baked Vanilla Donuts with Chocolate Frosting start with a simple
vanilla batter. They’re baked until lightly puffy and brown then dunked
in smooth, rich chocolate!
A couple of months ago I finally placed a big order with Amazon for some kitchen items that I had been wanting. One of the things I wanted was a donut pan. Another is a Silpat mat that you see in the photos below. Although I use the Silpat mat mostly for baking cookies, I did style photos with it this time.
Baked Vanilla Donuts | Chocolate Frosting
The base for this vanilla donut is similar to any plain cake, muffin or waffle batter. Fill free to use this basic dough and eat them plain or top them with a simple vanilla glaze. You can also mix in 1/2 cup of mini chocolate chips and leave them un-frosted!
One thing you will want to do is put our batter into a zip top bag, snip the corner and pipe the batter into your donut pan. It makes it much less messier this way!
Also, if you don’t have a donut pan you can bake it in a muffin tin. You will need to adjust cooking time; start at 1 to 2 minutes longer and watch carefully.
