Homemade Baked Chocolate Donuts with Maple Glaze

Temperatures dipped into the low fifties here in Virginia over the past two days, and I took that as a sure sign that Fall has arrived. Like any Pinterest addict enthusiast, I spent some time over the weekend browsing my Pin boards to find a fun new Fall recipe to try. My kids were overjoyed that I picked one for Baked Chocolate Donuts with Maple Glaze. Get ready for some deliciousness!

To quote my friend Crystal, this recipe is actually a "mash-up" of two recipes I Pinned to my Pin Boards, and I adapted them to suit my needs. I found a cute little donut pan at Target recently and just had to try it out!

Baked Chocolate Donuts with Maple Glaze
adapted from Betty Crocker


*4 cups Original Bisquick Mix
6 T unsweetened baking cocoa
6 T granulated sugar
1 1/3 cup milk (I used whole because that's what my girls drink)
2 eggs
2 t vanilla

1/2 cup powdered sugar
1 T real maple or maple flavored syrup (I had light maple syrup)

1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F and spray your donut pan with non-stick baking spray.

2. Add all your donut ingredients to a medium sized bowl and mix well. Mine had a pretty thick, sticky consistency.

3. Spoon batter into the pan. Bake for 6 to 8 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted near the center of the donut comes out clean. 

4. Allow to cool for five minutes before dipping the top of each donut into the glaze.

5. To make the glaze, stir the powdered sugar and syrup vigorously until smooth. I microwaved it just enough to get it warm and liquidy. It hardened quickly!

*Note: The donut recipe called for Bisquick mix, which I don't keep in the pantry. No worries...I found an awesome Homemade Bisquick Mix Recipe from Unsophisticook and doubled it.

    A friend of mine burnt down her kitchen frying donuts on the stove, so the fact that these are baked is quite a relief! :)

  5. My word, those look SO GOOD! I just love it when someone else does the mash-up and then writes about it--so I can just try the goodness of the already-mashed-up recipe!

    Would you mind telling me what brand syrup you used? So many recipes call for maple syrup, and I never know if that means the real stuff or the kind of pancake syrup I buy. Thanks!
