Triple chocolate donuts (Donuts de chocolate al horno)

 




 Finally  we are so close to Christmas, I love it is my favorite time to cook or bake. It was my mom's favorite time so that's why I'm always nostalgic!

Today I was finally able to make this  recipe, baked chocolate donuts (not fried) and they were very good I hope you like them.

These easy homemade chocolate donuts are filled with a fudgy chocolate filling and chocolate  glaze. 

 

And here two weeks from Christmas again in Quarantine, isn't it a crazy world? 

But I remember the lovely  Anna Frank in a more difficult time than us, locked up and still celebrate their Pesaj (Passover seder)

We cannot be less. Merry Christmas to all!

Add the wet ingredients to the flour mixture and stir until fully combined. If you want add the chocolate chips and stir once more.

Add batter in a piping bag (or plastic sandwich bag)  and pipe it into the donut pan. 

Baker for 10 to 12 minutes. Allow to cool be fore adding the glaze.

For chocolate glaze

in a microwave safe bowl melt the chocolate, heavy cream and butter gently in the microwave (in 30 seconds intervals and stirring in between)

Dip the tops of the donuts into the chocolate glaze and place on a cooling rack to set.

You can garnish with some Christmas sprinkles.


NOTE : If you dont have a donut pan  you can use a muffins pan like this.



The first time I made baked donuts I didn't have a donuts pan and I use this idea.
From Taste of Home  from Jenna Urben


To transform a muffin pan into a doughnut pan you will need :

Muffin pan

Aluminium foil

Cooking spray or oil

Take a square piece of foil and place ir over of your fingers.

It needs to be large enough to cover the bottom of each cup in the muffin tin.

5" x 5" square works ok.

Fold the foil around your finger gently folding the sides up, to create a mold.

Place into the cup of your muffin tin and press into place. Repeat for remaining cups

  1. Gloria, your donuts look perfect! I have too many specialty pans as it is, so don't want to buy a donut pan. So I really appreciate that you showed a photo of how to manage with foil and a muffin pan.
