  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • ¼ cup cocoa powder
  • cups sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 large egg lightly beaten
  • cups whole milk
  • 2 tablespoons butter melted
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla

For the double glaze: (Note: if you plan to do just one layer, half the recipe)

  • 4 cups confectioner's sugar
  • 3 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 2-3 tablespoons hot water


For the Donuts

  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Grease 3 (6 section) doughnut pans well.
  • Into a large bowl, sift together the flour, cocoa powder, sugar, baking powder, and salt.
  • In a small bowl, whisk together the egg, milk, melted butter, vegetable oil, and vanilla.
  • Stir the wet mixture into the dry ingredients until just combined.
  • Spoon the batter into the baking pans, filling each one a little more than three-quarters full.
  • Bake for 17 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. Allow to cool for 5 minutes, then tap the doughnuts out onto a sheet pan.

For the Glaze

  • Combine all the ingredients in a medium bowl and mix until smooth. 

  • Place baking paper under wire racks to catch the excess glaze.
  • As each batch is finished baking, coat the hot donuts in glaze on both sides by dunking each side quickly. Set them on a wire rack to let the excess drip off onto the baking paper underneath.
  • Once you reach the end, re-dip for a second time.
