oven baked chocolate glazed donuts


I was out shopping at one of my favourite stores last week, Gaganis Brothers, which is a wholesale warehouse open to the public. I love visiting this store and I always get a little carried away with my purchases. I went in to buy some preserving jars and stock up on my herbs and spices, and came out spending a few hundred dollars…….oops…….. Anyway the point to this story is that I brought myself a donut tray, plus a few other extra baking accessories πŸ™‚


So armed with my new donut tray clearly it was going to be donuts for afternoon tea. I just love the fact that these donuts are baked and not deep fried, they are only half as bad for you right?

This is the first time I have made oven baked donuts and wow they are so easy, and took no time at all. I was going to make cinnamon donuts (which are my favourite) but my daughter Kiara really wanted chocolate ones, so cinnamon ones next time.



  • 5 Tsp unsalted butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup caster sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1 tsp vanilla bean paste
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • pinch salt
  • 200g dark chocolate chopped
  • 1/2 cup cream


  1. preheat oven to 160ΒΊC
  2. lightly oil donut tray and set aside
  3. cream butter and sugar using an electric mixer
  4. add milk, egg and vanilla mix until combined ( mix will look curdled)
  5. add baking powder and salt
  6. add flour, mix until just combined
  7. fill a piping bag fitted with a large round nozzle, pipe in pan filling 1/2 way to the top ( if you don’t have a donut pan you can use a muffin tin)
  8. bake for 8-10 minutes
  9. place chocolate and cream into a saucepan over low heat stir until melted and smooth, set aside for 10 minutes to cool and thicken slightly
  10. using a spoon drizzle chocolate glaze over the still slightly warm donuts, set aside to set, then ENJOY
