baked chocolate donuts - for those of us with a chocolate obsession

These donuts were so easy and absolutely delicious! If you are in desperate need of a chocolate fix these are perfect. If not, I would suggest glazing them with the usual powder sugar/milk glaze. I converted this recipe to GF so it works with your normal flour as well! (You will only need 3/4 cup of flour) I'm so excited to have a donut pan now too :)

Baked Chocolate Donuts

1/4 cup tapioca
1/4 cup white rice
1/4 cup millet
1/4 cup almond
1/4 cup dutch-process cocoa
1/2 cup sugar
1 tablespoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 egg
1/2 cup milk
1 teaspoon vanilla
4 tablespoons canola oil
Preheat the oven to 450 degrees and coat a donut pan liberally with cooking spray. Stir together flour, cocoa powder, sugar, baking powder and salt in a large bowl. Add the egg, vanilla, and milk and stir together for 1 minute. Add the oil and continue to whisk until just combined. Transfer the batter to a large measuring cup (or a bowl with a spout) for easy pouring. Fill each cavity in the pan 2/3 of the way full with batter. Bake for 7 to 9 minutes or until the donuts spring back when lightly touched. Cool completely before icing. Yields 10 to 12 donuts.

Chocolate Glaze
1/2 cup semisweet chocolate chips
2 tablespoons butter
1 tablespoon corn syrup
1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
To make the glaze: combine the chocolate chips, butter, corn syrup and vanilla extract in a double boiler (or in a stainless steel or glass bowl over some simmering water). Stir until the chocolate is melted and everything is incorporated. Use immediately.
