If you say chocolate for breakfast… I’m IN! These super moist, tender, double chocolate cake donuts are the perfect way to start your day. When I tell you these are the best chocolate donuts I have ever had, I am not exaggerating! They are easy to make and look like they were purchased from a donut shop!

Peanut Free, Tree Nut Free, Egg Free, and Dairy Free

Prep Time: 10 minutes / Cook Time: 8 minutes

Yield: 12 donuts


For The Donuts

  • 2 cups of flour
  • 1/2 cup of sugar
  • 2 teaspoons of baking powder (Clabber Girl)
  • 1/2 teaspoon of salt
  • 1/3 cup of unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 cup of milk or non dairy (Oatly oat milk)
  • 1/2 cup of plain or vanilla yogurt or non dairy (Oatly Oatgurt)
  • 1/4 cup of oil (Pompeian grapeseed oil)
  • 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract (McCormick)

For the Glaze

  • 1 cup of powdered sugar
  • 2 tablespoons of unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1-2 tablespoons of water
  • colored sprinkles (optional and I use Betty Crocker or Cake Mate)


For the Donuts

  • Set your oven to 425* degrees
  • Lightly grease your donut pan and set aside
  • Combine your flour, sugar, baking powder, salt and cocoa powder in your mixing bowl
  • In another bowl, combine milk, yogurt, oil and vanilla
  • Add your wet ingredients into your dry ingredients and Mix
  • Spoon batter onto your donut pan
  • Bake at 425* degrees for 7-9 minutes
  • Once removed from oven allow them to cool for about 5 minutes before moving to your cooling rack
  • Once donuts have been moved to the cooling racks start your glaze

For the Glaze

  • Combine powdered sugar and cocoa powder into your mixing bowl
  • Then add in 1-2 tablespoon of water, one at a time to check consistency. Stir until smooth. You want it to be runny.
  • Dip your completely cooled down donut into the glaze, lift it up and tilt slightly to let the excess glaze drip back into the bowl, and place the donut on the cooling rack, glaze side up.
  • Add your sprinkles right away. If you wait the glaze will harden and the sprinkles will not stick
