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