  • 3/4 cup flour
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar packed
  • 1/4 cup cocoa powder
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons canola or vegetable oil
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1 tesapoon vanilla
  • 1 egg

Vanilla-Butter Glaze

  • 3/4 cup powdered sugar
  • 2 tablespoons milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 tablespoon butter melted


  • Prepare your donut pan by spraying with cooking spray, set aside.
    Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • In a medium bowl, combine flour, brown and white sugar, cocoa powder, baking powder and salt until mixed together. In a separate large mixing bowl, whisk together milk, egg, canola oil, and vanilla.
  • Beat the dry ingredients with the milk mixture until the batter is well combined and smooth.
  • Pour batter into large Ziploc bag, snip off a tiny section of the corner, and “pipe” the batter abot 2/3 full into the donut pan. Place in preheated oven at 350 degrees for 9-11 minutes.
  • Remove donuts from oven and set on baking rack. After a few minutes remove donuts from pan and let them completely cool on the baking rack.


  • Whisk all of the ingredients together in a small mixing bowl. Start off with 2 tablespoon of milk, add more if desired to get the consistency you like. Remember the glaze is NOT thick, not like a frosting.
  • Dip the entire donut into the glaze, let it the excess drip from the donut then place back on baking rack.
  • It is also easy to dip the bottom half first, then immediately turn donut over and dip the top. Repeat with remaining donuts and glaze.
