Baked Chocolate Glazed Donuts

If you're looking for a bit of a treat - this is for you! Fluffy, dipped in chocolate, with a hint of cinnamon, these Baked Chocolate Glazed Donuts are a must try. And a bonus - they're much easier and cleaner than your regular deep-fried donuts.

I love an easy donut recipe, especially one that doesn't require a bottle of oil and standing at my stove to ensure I flip the dough at the perfect timing. Not to mention the cleanup after.

So, if you're feeling like a little treat and something different to try, I've got you covered. And if you don't have a big family to feed these to, this recipe only makes 6 donuts, the perfect size of a recipe!

Baked Chocolate Glazed Donuts


  • 1 cup flour

  • 1 tsp baking powder

  • ¼ tsp baking soda

  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon

  • ¼ tsp salt

  • 2 tbsp salted butter, melted

  • 1 large egg

  • ⅓ cup brown sugar

  • ¼ cup milk

  • ¼ cup sour cream, plain yogurt, or mayonnaise

  • 1 tsp vanilla


  • 2 tbsp milk (maybe more)

  • 1 1/2 tsp vanilla

  • 1 cup icing sugar

  • 2 1/2 tbsp cocoa powder


  1. Preheat oven to 350. Grease donut pan and set aside.

  2. Make the donuts: combine the dry ingredients and set aside. Whisk the melted butter with the sugar, egg, then add the milk, yogurt (or whatever you’re using), and vanilla and whisk together. Pour the dry ingredients into the wet and lightly fold until fully combined. Don’t over-mix.

  3. Scoop the batter into a ziploc bag and cut a hole at the bottom (or use a piping bag). Pipe the batter into the donut cups.

  4. Bake for 10-12 minutes. To check if done, lightly poke a donut and if it bounces back, they’re done.

  5. Transfer to a wire rack over a cookie sheet to cool. Meanwhile mix the icing. If the consistency is too think, add1 tablespoon of milk at a time

  6. Dip each donut into the icing and place back on rack. I like to do this twice to get a full set layer of icing. Add another picture at the end as a serving suggestion.
