This week’s midweek doughnuts are a bit late. I used my doughnut maker to make these and you can also use a doughnut baking tray. I’m not sure how long I will be obsessed with my mini-doughnut maker – but for now it’s the biggest hype. I know not everyone has the doughnut tray or doughnut maker, so I’ll share a fried doughnut recipe soon.


1 Cup Cake Flour
1/4 Cup Cocoa Powder
1/3 Cup White Sugar
1 Tbsp Baking Powder
1/2 Tsp Salt
2/3 Cup Milk
1/4 Cup Melted Butter
1/2 Tsp Vanilla Essence
1 Large Egg


  1. Oven: Preheat oven to 180 C and prepare doughnut pans by spraying with non-stick spray. Doughnut maker: Preheat doughnut-maker for 5 minutes prior to baking doughnuts.
  2. In a large bowl, add the Cake Flour, Cocoa Powder, White Sugar, Baking Powder and Salt. Mix the dry ingredients together using a whisk.
  3. Combine the Milk, Melted Butter, Vanilla Essence and the Egg together in a smaller bowl then add to the dry ingredients and whisk together until well combined. The batter should be thick and smooth.
  4. Add batter to doughnut pans or doughnut maker and bake for either 15 minutes in the oven or 3 minutes in the doughnut maker.
  5. Allow to cool before decorating.
  6. To Decorate: Heat 1/4 Cup of Cream in a microwave until steaming. Add 125g of chocolate pieces and allow chocolate to melt into the cream before stirring. Stir together until smooth then decorate doughnuts as you please.
