Chocolate Glazed Donuts
Who doesn’t love chocolate donuts for breakfast? Even better is when they’re chocolate glazed donuts! A few months ago, I purchased a donut pan that seems to be the craze everywhere.
The donut pan sat in my cabinet for quite awhile before I actually used it. Does that happen to you sometimes? I recently made a batch of these delicious homemade chocolate glazed donuts for my daughter, Olivia’s birthday. They came out amazing and I can’t wait for you to share the recipe with you and hope you try it too!
Helpful Kitchen Tools:
You are going to need to purchase a donut pan, I purchased mine on Amazon, but you can find one almost everywhere now:
- Donut Pan
- Cookie Scoops
- Baking Rack – you definitely need one of these to help with pouring the glaze on top of the baked donuts.
Make sure you check out my Shopping List at the bottom of this post so you can see the exact donut pan I used for this recipe. I actually have two donut pans now.
How to Bake Chocolate Glazed Donuts
- Bake the donuts in a 375 degree preheated oven for about 8 to 10 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into one donut comes out clean.
- Let the donuts cool in the pan slightly before gently removing them from the donut pan.
- Allow them to cool on a baker’s rack before adding the glaze.
How to Glaze the Donuts
This step proved to be a little tricky. I tried dipping the donuts in the glaze but it was really messy. I finally set the donuts on a baking rack over a baking tray that I covered with wax paper and then “poured” or drizzled the glaze on top. This way worked great!
Wait about 10 minutes or so before you actually eat the donuts. Letting them rest after you pour the glaze on helps set the glaze so the donuts aren’t too wet.
These easy Chocolate Glazed Donuts are baked not fried and then drizzled with a delicious sweet glaze. They're the perfect treat this weekend for your family.
