Lenten Chocolate Doughnut Recipe

Last weekend, we had company which consisted of nine children including my own, so I decided that snacks were in order.  For the adults, of course. They are so quick and easy!  The only thing I should have done differently was double the recipe.  I think we got just under two dozen.

I also tried a different glaze recipe and I like this one better than my old one.

Just wanted to share in case you needed a mid-fast snack! Enjoy!!

Lenten Chocolate Doughnuts


  • 3 cups flour
  • 2 t. baking soda
  • 6 T cocoa
  • 1 t. salt
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 3 T vinegar
  • 2 t. vanilla
  • 3/4 cup oil
  • 2 cups cold water


  1. Mix flour, soda, cocoa, salt & sugar in large bowl.
  2. Add vinegar, vanilla, oil & water. Mix well.
  3. Pour batter into greased cake or doughnut pan.
  4. Bake @ 350 degrees for 10-15 minutes.

Chocolate Doughnut Glaze

*(don’t make ahead of time, must use immediately before hardens)

  • 1/4 cup semisweet chocolate chips (I use Ghirardelli)
  • 1 tablespoon margarine
  • 1 tablespoon corn syrup
  • 1 teaspoon hot water

In medium bowl, microwave chocolate chips, margarine, butter and corn syrup on half (50%) power for 1 minute, stirring frequently until completely melted.  Stir in 1 teaspoon hot water, until the glaze is thick and smooth.  Add another teaspoon hot water if the glaze is too thick.  Use immediately to glaze doughnuts.

At first I added the glaze with a spoon but then my sister-in-law suggested just dipping them in the bowl (which is also what the recipe called for, but I’m stubborn like that).  Dipping them was much easier and less time consuming.  🙂  Then add sprinkles!

    1. I got one of my doughnut pans from a rummage sale at the church but the other one I bought from Target around Valentine’s Day for like $7.99, I think. It’s a Wilton one and I love it! 🙂
