  • Two ½ Dozen Donut Pans
  • Mixing Bowls


  • 1 cup All Purpose Flour
  • cup Cocoa Powder
  • ½ cup White Sugar
  • 1 teaspoon Baking Powder
  • ½ teaspoon Table Salt
  • 1 Large Egg
  • cup Sour Cream
  • 5 tablespoons Milk 2%
  • ¼ cup Canola Oil
  • 1 tablespoon Vanilla Extract Pure Preferred

Vanilla Glaze

  • 1 ½ cups Icing Sugar
  • ¼ cup Milk 2%
  • 1 teaspoon Vanilla Extract Pure Preferred


  • Preheat oven to 400°F and grease two half dozen donut pans with cooking spray or a neutral oil. Set aside.
  • In a large bowl, combine All Purpose Flour, Cocoa Powder, White Sugar, Baking Powder and Table Salt. Stir to combine.
  • In a different medium bowl, combine the Egg, Sour Cream, Milk, Canola Oil and Vanilla Extract. Whisk until combined.
  • Mix the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients until just combined.
  • Spoon the donut batter equally between the 12 greased donut pans. Each donut should be about 1 ½ tablespoons.
  • Bake at 400°F for 8-10 minutes, until the tops of the donuts spring back when touched and an inserted toothpick comes out clean. Let the donuts cool completely in the pan.
  • While the donuts are cooling, combine the ingredients for the glaze (Icing Sugar, Milk and Vanilla Extract).
  • Take the donuts, 1 at a time, and dunk them in the glaze. Flip the donuts to make sure both sides are covered. Let them sit on a cooling rack until set (about 5 minutes).


Glaze the donuts after they've cooled a bit but are not fully cooled. This will ensure the glaze sets but that it doesn't absorb into the donut.
