Chocolate Buttermilk Funfetti Donuts
These chocolate buttermilk funfetti donuts are baked, covered with a nice layer of chocolate ganache and decorated with my favorite funfetti sprinkles.
Although I had a savory recipe planned to be published on the blog today, I just couldn’t resist sharing this one. I made these donuts yesterday and they turned out just perfect!
These donuts are very easy to make, take less than 15 minutes to bake and I tried to make them healthier. They are moist, have a rich chocolatey taste and the best part is that they are covered with colorful, girly sprinkles!
It is unbelievable how much I love eating donuts, but I rarely buy them. I’ll just get a Boston Creme Dunkin Donut once in a while, but these have around 300 calories each, and having one, just isn’t enough for me. Making homemade baked donuts is something I enjoy doing. I hadn’t baked any in a long time and while I kept seeing recipes for pumpkin and apple donuts everywhere, (most of which looked scrumptious!) I decided to share with you my favorite homemade baked donuts recipe. The dough for these donuts is chocolate cake dough, made with buttermilk. I added a teaspoon of instant coffee to enhance the chocolate flavor. To make my donuts healthier, this time I used 1/2 cup whole wheat flour and 1/2 cup all purpose, but all purpose only can be used. And since I’ve been baking a lot lately, in this recipe I used unrefined organic sugar, instead of regular. (Regular sugar works great in this batter).
This recipe yields a small batch, around 7-8 chocolate donuts, but this time I filled the donut cavities about 1/2 full and I was able to make 10 donuts. This recipe can easily be doubled. I was going to say these donuts are good for breakfast, but they really are good for any time of the day! If you feel that you deserve chocolate donuts, go ahead and make some, and don’t forget the sprinkles!
