These are like chocolate cakes shaped like a doughnut. Shape anything into a doughnut and I would probably eat it.


  • 2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 0.5 cup any kind chocolate chips or chunks (I used semi-sweet)
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 6 Tbsp unsalted butter, melted and cooled slightly
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1 cup low-fat buttermilk
  • 0.5 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 0.5 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  1. Preheat the oven to 325 degrees. Coat a doughnut pan with non-stick spray. In a large bowl, combine the flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, and salt. In a separate, smaller bowl, mix together the buttermilk, brown sugar, eggs, melted butter and vanilla. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry and use a rubber spatula to gently mix the ingredients together. Lastly, mix in the chocolate chips.
  2. Pour the batter to a large gallon size plastic bag; cut off a small corner and use the bag to pipe the doughnut cake batter into the pan, filling each well about ? full (for bigger sized doughnuts; you can experiment but be careful not to overfill each well or cavity). Bake for 10-12 minutes, or until the cake tops spring back when touched. Cool completely on a wire rack.

  • 0.33 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 1 cup good quality chocolate, finely chopped OR semi-sweet or milk chocolate chip morsels
  • 0.5 tsp vanilla extract


  • nuts: almond slivers, hazlenut bits, almond slices, whatever you want (optional)
  • sprinkles of any kind
  1. Place the chocolate pieces in a small bowl. Combine the heavy cream and vanilla extract in a small saucepan over medium-low heat. Cook until small bubbles appear on the outside edge of the cream. Pour the hot cream mixture over the chocolate. Using a wire whisk, gently stir until all of the chocolate is melted and the mixture is smooth.
  2. Once the doughnuts have cooled a bit, dip each one into the ganache, swirl a little to ensure good coverage and then place back on the wire rack. Sprinkle or decorate with nuts and/or any kind sprinkles and have fun!
