I am calling these little cuties healthy doughnut because they are baked and not deep fried. Maybe healthier is better?
1 cup flour
1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup buttermilk
4 Tbl butter, melted
1 tsp vanilla
1 Tbl butter, melted
1 1/4 cup powdered sugar
3 Tbl unsweetened cocoa powder
3 to 4 Tbl milk
2 tsp vanilla
Place rack in the upper third of the oven and preheat oven to 325°. Spray doughnut baking pan with nonstick cooking spray and set aside.
For the doughnuts: In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, salt, and brown sugar. In a small bowl, whisk together buttermilk, egg, melted butter, and vanilla until thoroughly combined. Pour wet ingredients into dry ingredients and fold together until all ingredients are well combined. Scoop batter into prepared doughnut baking pan. Each doughnut mold should be about two-thirds full. Bake doughnuts 11 to 13 minutes or until skewer inserted comes out clean. Remove from oven and allow doughnuts to rest five minutes before inverting onto wire rack to cool completely before glazing. Repeat baking process with remaining batter.
For the glaze: In a medium bowl whisk together butter, powdered sugar, cocoa powder, and salt. Add 2 tablespoons of milk and vanilla. Whisk to combine. Mixture may be thick. Add milk, a tablespoon at a time, until glaze is thick but still pourable. Dip each doughnut into chocolate glaze. Shake off some of the excess glaze. Return to wire rack and sprinkle with color jimmies. Allow to rest for the frosting to harden slightly. Makes 8-10 doughnuts, depends on how full you fill the molds and how much batter you eat!
