Fluffy and soft cake donuts coated in rich chocolate! Baked only for 15 minutes! A delicious alternative to those store-bought fried donuts!
I’m a donut lover, that’s for sure! My husband and I got donuts on our first date. 4 years later, we still get donuts often. Our favorite donut shop opened a store very close to where we live so we literally went 1-2 times a week, it was an obsession. We’ve toned down since then.
Instead of buying donuts so often, I decided to make some at home! I prefer cake donuts over yeast so these were delicious! There isn’t any yeast required so it’s a recipe ready in under 30 minutes! I used almond so it’s gluten-free! The donut was completely dunked in melty rich chocolate chunks to coat.
Here’s what the inside looks like! I like it fluffy and more dense!
I baked the donuts by itself first, then allowed it to cool for 15 minutes before dunking in melty chocolate to coat. I placed them in the fridge to harden but you can also leave it at room temperature. It will just take longer.
I’ve had a donut pan for a while now so I’ll definitely be making more donut recipes in the near future!
