These Triple Chocolate Baked Doughnuts are very easy to bake, stay fresh for a few days, and are dressed up with rainbow sprinkles. If these don’t make you smile, I don’t know what will!
A few weeks ago, I accidentally made the best baked chocolate doughnuts. I was testing my chocolate stout baked doughnuts recipe and added some melted chocolate to the batter. Although it was hard to taste the beer, what I did taste was the most amazing chocolate doughnuts. So amazing that I filed the recipe away on my “must post asap” list and looked at my calendar to see how soon I could bring you this recipe. If you ever made doughnuts at home, whether they were baked or fried, you probably noticed they don’t taste fresh the next day. Not this recipe. Thanks to the buttermilk and coffee, these Triple Chocolate Baked Doughnuts stayed super moist for a few days. And I’m not kidding around – when I say chocolate doughnuts, I really do mean in-your-face chocolate because I used chocolate three times – cocoa powder in the batter, melted chocolate in the batter, and of course that thick chocolate glaze. I’m not talking about those super thin glazes that almost immediately get absorbed into the doughnut. I’m talking about a super thick glaze, almost like a frosting but thin enough to dip. Then you dunk them into rainbow sprinkles because sprinkles naturally make doughnut eating more fun. Are you hungry for doughnuts yet? Good because they take less than an hour to make too.
