How to Make Baked Donuts with Chocolate Fudge Glaze

Step 1

Make the batter by adding the dry ingredients together. In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, add the flour, cane sugar, baking powder, nutmeg, and sea salt and mix together to combine.

Step 2

Add the egg, heavy whipping cream, yogurt, melted butter, and vanilla extract. Mix on low until combined into a thick batter. Transfer the batter to a piping bag. If you don’t have a piping bag, you can also use a spoon to spoon it into the donut molds as well!

Step 3

Bake the donuts until lightly golden brown. Allow to cool completely in the pans.

Step 4

Microwave the hot fudge sauce until it’s warm. You can transfer the sauce into a larger bowl and dip the tops of the donuts in it, or you can use a butter knife and spread it on top.

Step 5

Top with your preferred toppings like nuts, chocolate, or rainbow sprinkles! Or you can also leave them plain!

FAQ's

Can I make these ahead of time?

Yes, you can make these donuts ahead of time. Just be sure to store them in an airtight container or in a cake dome!

How should I store these?

These do need to be stored in an airtight container because they are a baked cake donut. You can use a Tupperware, but a cake dome is a really great option for this!

What other toppings can I use?

I used mini chocolate chips, rainbow sprinkles, chocolate sprinkles, and slivered almonds. Other toppings that would be delicious are chopped peanuts, pecans, walnuts, freeze dried strawberries or raspberries, fresh blueberries, or fresh strawberries!

Why organic?

Why use organic ingredients in this recipe? You all know I’m a huge organic advocate, and I bet you may be thinking sometimes, Why would I even bother to use organic ingredients in something that is so sweet and indulgent? But, that is the exact reason why you should use organic ingredients! Sweet things need to have flavor in order to be good, otherwise they are just sweet and they don’t taste like much else. Organic ingredients are more pure than conventional ones, therefore they actually have more flavor than the non organic options. Say it with me, organic means more flavor! And not just more flavor but a more true and pure flavor. And organic ingredients are much healthier for you to eat in general as they do not contain GMOs or anything artificial. Plus, you are being environmentally friendly when you choose organic ingredients!

So, I highly recommend that you buy the best organic ingredients for this recipe! You can also shop my Amazon Storefront for all my favorite organic ingredients here. Tip – hover over each ingredient to see the name. And if you want to learn more about organic foods and the difference, read my post here on Food Labels and What They Mean.
