Triple Chocolate Donuts

Homemade donuts are a great way to impress people, especially children. (Or maybe adults? Both at my house were equally impressed.) It's also a fun way to change up breakfast, or breakfast for dinner. I get a lot of cooperation with quiche and egg casserole when donuts are involved. And since these are baked, there's (virtually) no guilt. Go ahead, eat chocolate for breakfast.

We got creative, too - I let the kids decorate these as they wished. I waited to glaze them until everyone was at the table, then handed out freshly glazed donuts and a variety of sprinkles. Sprinkles practically guarantee happiness. Try it!

Triple Chocolate Donuts

2 cups flour
1/2 cup cocoa powder
1 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
1 cup buttermilk
1 cup brown sugar
2 eggs
6 Tbsp. unsalted butter, melted and slightly cooled
2 tsp. vanilla
1/2 cup milk chocolate chips

For the glaze:
3/4 cup semisweet chocolate chips
3 Tbsp. unsalted butter
1 1/2 Tbsp. corn syrup
1/2 tsp. vanilla

In a large bowl, stir together flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, and salt.

In a separate bowl, whisk together buttermilk, brown sugar, egg, melted butter, and vanilla.

Pour the buttermilk mixture into the dry ingredients and gently fold them together. Fold in the chocolate chips. Spoon the batter into well greased donut rounds, filling each about 2/3 full.

Bake at 325 for 10 to 12 minutes until they spring back to the touch. Let cool on a wire rack.

Make the glaze by placing the glaze ingredients in a microwave safe bowl and microwaving on 50% power at 45 second intervals until almost melted. Stir until smooth. Dip the donuts into the glaze. Decorate with sprinkles, coconut, or additional chocolate chips, if you like. Makes 12-16 donuts.
