Rich, sweet and soft double chocolate baked donuts that are topped with a chocolate glaze.

When you try that first bite of the chocolate baked donut…there’s no going back.

This recipe is so easy to make and only takes 30 minutes.

Years ago a girlfriend of mine gifted me a donut baking pan. I think we tried one recipe, it was a fail and we never thought about it again.

Recently though, I’ve been testing recipes and this double chocolate baked donut was a huge success.

Since the donuts are baked, the texture is similar to cake but in donut form. It’s just too fun!

For that double chocolate result, cocoa powder is used for the donut batter and dark chocolate for the glaze.

Most of us are chocolate lovers and it so happens that dark chocolate has some health benefits as well!

Dark chocolate is loaded with nutrients that can positively affect your health and mood.

It is a powerful source of antioxidant and may improve blood flow and lower blood pressure.

Because chocolate does contain sugar, it’s always best to consume in moderation.

Make the Donut Batter

First, preheat your oven to 350°F.

In a large bowl combine all of your dry ingredients, mix with a whisk or fork and set aside.

In a smaller bowl combine the wet ingredients using a whisk or fork.

Add the wet ingredients to the dry and mix until just incorporated. Do not over mix.


Bake The Donuts

Lightly grease your donut pan with oil and set aside.

Add the batter to a piping bag or ziplock bag to help pipe the batter evenly into the donut pan.

Bake the donuts at 350°F for 15 minutes or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean.

Allow the donuts to cool slightly.


Make The Chocolate Galze

While the donuts are cooling, make the glaze.

In a small sauce pan, add the ingredients and melt together on medium heat, stirring occasionally.

This will happen fast so do not leave the stove unattended.


Glaze The Donuts

Remove the donuts from the pan then dip one side into the chocolate glaze and transfer onto a wire rack to cool completely.


Decorate With Shredded Coconut

Lastly, sprinkle with some shredded coconut.

Nuts and seeds are also a great option!



These donuts can be kept in an air-tight container for up to 3 days.

Though I bet they will be gone within one day!
