Instructions

For the Chocolate Cake Donuts
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Spray a donut pan with non stick cooking spray.
  • In a large bowl, sift together granulated sugar, all-purpose flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, and salt. Set aside.
  • In a medium bowl, whisk together egg, vanilla extract, canola oil, sour cream, and milk.
  • Pour wet ingredients into dry ingredients, whisking together until there are no longer any clumps.
  • For filling the donut pan, use a pastry bag or a zip lock bag with the corner cut to pipe the batter into the pan. Fill the donuts about 2/3 full.
  • Bake in the oven for 12-15 minutes, until donuts have raised to just above the height of the donut pan.
  • Allow donuts to cool in the pan for 5 minutes, then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.
For the Nutella Glaze
  • In a small bowl, whisk together powdered sugar, cocoa powder, nutella, and milk until smooth.
  • If you’d like the frosting to be thinner, add 1 tsp of milk at a time until desired consistency is reached. If you’d like the frosting to be thicker, add 1 tsp powdered sugar at a time.
Putting it all Together.
  • Dip cooled donuts in frosting, submerging them at least 1/2 way or up to 2/3. Place frosted donuts back on the cooling rack. Top with sprinkles if desired. Allow frosting to set before eating, roughly 10-15 minutes.Ingredients
