Chocolate Chip Donuts

May 6, 2019Teresa

Chocolate Chip Donuts will have you drooling from the first bite. Yes, these spectacular donuts are loaded with chocolate. My kind of donut. 🙂 I used miniature chocolate chips in the donuts. Then I used cocoa in the icing. And, of course, they’re topped with chocolate sprinkles. Yes, they’re wonderful. Yes, they’re delicious. Yes, you should make them NOW!

We had a bunch of our young adult (college-age) folks over to our house back in early April. I served breakfast after church that Sunday instead of lunch. We made Hash Brown Casserole with Ham, Sausage Cheese Grits Casserole, Cheesy O’Brien Egg Scramble, fruit platters and these awesome Chocolate Chip Donuts. Everything was so well received, but you can never go wrong with donuts.

I like these because I bake them. I don’t like frying donuts. That’s just too much work for me. These baked donuts puff out beautifully while baking. They also give you that chocolate fix when you want one. They’re really not quite as difficult as they look either. Basically you mix the dry ingredients. Then mix the wet ingredients. Then you combine the two with the chocolate chips. After the donuts cool, you dunk them in icing. If you want to, you can sprinkle a few chocolate sprinkles over top before the icing sets.

I love donuts since they are my comfort food of choice. I remember when I was a child and my mom used to make homemade donuts for breakfast on Sunday mornings. We loved and demolished them. Sometimes she would make them to go with hamburgers on Saturday nights, because we requested them so much. Yes, I LOVE donuts. 🙂

Chocolate Chip Donuts are superb. If you want to wow your family on Mother’s Day or Father’s Day, make up a batch of these donuts. Don’t be surprised if you turn around and find they’re ALL gone. Your family may find donuts become their comfort food of choice, too. 🙂

Place donuts on top of cooling rack. Sprinkle chocolate sprinkles over top of each donut. Let icing drip off the cooling rack, if necessary. This is a soft icing. It doesn’t set hard like some icings do.

Instructions
DONUTS:
  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
  2. Grease a standard-size donut pan (20 cavities).
  3. In a large mixing bowl, stir sugar, flour, powder, baking soda, baking powder and salt.
  4. Set aside.
  5. In a separate bowl, whisk the milk, sour cream and eggs.
  6. Add vanilla, melted butter and canola oil and whisk until smooth.
  7. Combine flour mixture with egg mixture and miniature chocolate chips.
  8. Stir just until combined.
  9. Do not overmix.
  10. Batter will be thick.
  11. Transfer the batter to a Zip-Lock bag with the corner snipped off.
  12. Fill the donut cavities in the prepared pan with the batter until 2/3 full.
  13. Bake the doughnuts for 10-15 minutes, or until puffed and a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
  14. Cool in the pan for 5-10 minutes, before transferring to a cooling rack to cool completely.
CHOCOLATE GLAZE:
  1. Whisk together powdered sugar, cocoa and about 2 tablespoons cream or one tablespoon half-and-half.
  2. Add corn syrup and stir.
  3. Slowly add the remaining cream and half-and-half until glaze is smooth.
  4. Once the doughnuts are cooled, dip the top of the donut in the chocolate glaze.
  5. Set on cooling rack and sprinkle immediately with sprinkles.
Recipe Notes

NOTE: The secret to my donuts raising so nice and high is baking them at 425° instead of 350.° The extra heat allows the donuts to raise sufficiently in the short amount of time it takes to bake them. (I also fill the donut cavities quite full).

NOTE: This icing is really not a glaze that dries and sets. It is more like a cupcake or cake icing and stays gooey.
