Best Ever Baked Glazed Chocolate Donuts

Cook Time8 mins
Servings: 10 -12 donuts


  • For the donuts:
  • 2 cups self rising flour if using all purpose flour, add 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup cocoa powder
  • 1 cup milk chocolate chips
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 eggs
  • 3/4 cup sour cream
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • For the glaze:
  • 4 cups powdered sugar
  • 3/4 cup heavy cream or substitute for whole milk or half & half
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract


  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Combine the flour, sugar, cocoa powder, & chocolate chips together. In a separate bowl, whisk together the eggs, vanilla extract, sour cream, vegetable oil & milk. Mix together the liquid mixture with the dry mixture until combined, being careful not to over mix.
  • Distribute the mixture evenly between the donut holes in your donut pan. It makes it easier if you put the batter into a ziploc bag, cut off the tip, & squeeze it in the donut tins, but it's not necessary.
  • Bake at 375 for 8 minutes. Let the donuts stay in the pan for a couple of minutes to cool before turning them out onto a wire rack.
  • While the donuts are in the oven, make the glaze. Mix together the glaze ingredients in a saucepan over low/medium heat until combined & the sugar is dissolved. Remove from the heat.
  • Glaze the donuts while still warm by dipping the donuts into the glaze, thoroughly coating all sides. Cool on a wire rack over a baking sheet until the glaze is set.
