week 22: hannah’s pick – Chocolate Buttermilk Cake Donuts

today was our church’s annual Memorial Day picnic, and I wanted to bring something fun and easy to eat, so I decided to make donuts! they came out pretty good and the sprinkles made them really colorful and pretty and stuff 🙂 and they actually tasted better after they’d been frozen, in my opinion.♥


Chocolate Buttermilk Cake Donuts

1 1/2 cups cake flour
1/2 cup dutch process cocoa
3/4 cup sugar
2 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. kosher salt
3/4 cup buttermilk
2 eggs
2 T. butter, melted
1 tsp. vanilla

Preheat oven to 425. Spray donut pan with cooking spray.

In a large bowl (or stand mixer), soft together flour, cocoa, sugar, baking powder, and salt. Add buttermilk. Stir. Add butter and vanilla. Stir.  Add eggs one at a time, stirring in between each egg. Beat until just combined. Fill each donut mold about 2/3 full.

Bake for roughly seven minutes, or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean. Allow to cool, and decorate accordingly. I dipped mine in chocolate glaze and sprinkles.

3 tablespoons butter
1 tablespoon light corn syrup
