Mini chocolate donuts

  • Preheat oven to 350°. Grease the mini donut pan with non stick spray or vegetable shortening. Prepare a piping bag with small round tip. Set aside.
  • In a medium mixing bowl, sift flour in and then whisk the baking powder, cocoa powder, salt, and sugar together. Set aside.
  • In another large mixing bowl, whisk together the melted butter, egg, vanilla extract, and milk. Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and combine until no streaks of flour are left.
  • Transfer donut batter to the prepared piping bag. Pipe the batter into the prepared donut pan about ½ full. Bake for 8-10 minutes. Let donuts cool in the pan for 2-3 minutes before transferring to wire rack to complete cooling. Wait until donuts are completely cooled to dip in glaze.
