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!

Chocolate Glazed Baked Donuts

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.

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.

Baked Vanilla Donuts with Chocolate Frosting
Prep time: 
Cook time: 
Total time: 
Serves: 6
  • 1 cup all purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ cup granulated sugar
  • 1 egg, at room temperature
  • ¼ cup greek yogurt (sour cream or buttermilk may be substituted)
  • 3 tablespoon milk
  • 1 tablespoon butter, melted (may substitute margarine)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ¾ cup prepared chocolate cake frosting
  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. In a bowl, combine flour, baking powder, salt and sugar. Combine.
  3. Add egg, yogurt, milk, butter and vanilla stir until just combined. Over-stirring will make the donut tough.
  4. Place batter in a zip-top bag. I find the easiest way, unless you have someone to help, is to put the bag in a large glass. This leaves your hands free to get all the mixture into the bag.
  5. Squeeze the air out of the bag and snip the corner.
  6. Pipe the batter evenly into the donut pan. If your pan isn't a non-stick, you'll need to spray it with no-stick spray first.
  7. Bake at 400 degrees F for 8 minutes.
  8. Remove from oven and allow to cool on a baking rack while you prepare the frosting.
  9. Microwave frosting at 30 second intervals until smooth.
  10. Immediately dip donut in frosting, allow to cool and set. Enjoy!

    I just ordered a doughnut pan too. I am hoping it will be here tomorrow, but I suspect Monday is more like it. I can’t believe all the wonderful doughnuts that I am seeing the fab blogger cooks are popping out. Your are a prime example. And they look like honest to goodness—emphasis on goodness—doughnuts. I simply can’t wait, but I am going to have to.

      What I like about it is my recipe only makes 6, so I can’t over eat because I would warm donuts are my nemesis but so is warm cookies too!

    • says

      I’ve only had my pan a couple of months too. I baked for a month before having any left after the boys devoured them to blog. They love these and they really bake quickly. Thanks for stopping by, hope you love your pan too!

      Thanks so much, Cate. I love making these as well, by 2 boys love them too, most of the time they eat them before I have the chance to photograph! I think I should get another pan.

    • says

      I love it too, you should totally get one. I’ve made tons of donuts since I got it, but finally had to make some when the boys were at school so I could blog them! Thanks for your sweet words.
