Double Chocolate Baked Doughnuts
Makes 16 doughnuts
*This recipe is adapted from Silvana Nardone’s Chocolate-Dipped Chocolate Doughnuts. Do you have her cook book? If not, you should! It’s filled with fantastic gluten-free recipes.
1 1/2 Tablespoons Instant Coffee Granules
3/4 Cup Boiling Water
2 Large Eggs, room temperature
6 Tablespoons Vegetable Oil
1 Tablespoon Pure Vanilla Extract
1 1/2 Cups Silvana’s All Purpose Flour
1/2 Cup Unsweetened Cocoa Powder
1 1/2 teaspoons Baking Powder
3/4 teaspoon Baking Soda
3/4 teaspoon Kosher Salt
3/4 Cup Packed Dark Brown Sugar
3/4 Cup Granulated Sugar
1/4 Cup Boiling Water
6 ounces Dairy Free Semi Sweet Chocolate, chopped or shaved
2 1/4 Cups Powdered Sugar
1 1/2 Tablespoons Dark Brown Sugar
1 teaspoon Pure Vanilla Extract
1 Tablespoon Hot Water
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray two non-stick doughnut pans (I used non-stick mini bundt cake pans) well with non-stick cooking spray. Whisk the coffee and boiling water; let cool completely. Whisk in the eggs, oil, and vanilla.
In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, baking soda, salt, brown sugar, and granulated sugar. Whisk the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients until just combined. Fill each doughnut or bundt cake cup 3/4 full and bake for about 13-15 minutes. Should be springy to the touch. Don’t over bake.
Remove from oven and allow to cool in pans for 10 minutes. Carefully loosen the sided with a fork and using the fork to help lightly remove them from the pans, transfer to a cooling rack.
For the glaze, in a medium bowl stir together the boiling water and chocolate until melted. If it doesn’t melt all the way, microwave at 20 second intervals until smooth. Stir in the powdered sugar, corn syrup, and vanilla until thoroughly combined. Add the 1 Tablespoon of hot water and whisk until smooth and of dipping consistency.
Carefully dip each doughnut in the glaze, return to the cooling racks and top with sprinkles
Can you suggest a delicious gluten free protein bar already made. Currently I am using Isagenix’s but its a little expensive. I love having it everyday for lunch this way I don’t have to figure out what I am going to eat that is gluten free

Hi Kathy, and thanks for stopping by! I don’t typically care for protein bars but I do try to keep one in my purse just in case I’m starving when I’m out and about. I prefer the Kind Plus protein bars. Make sure you double check the ingredients though to make sure the bar you are choosing in gluten free and/or dairy free. 🙂
Thanks for the recipe, can’t wait to try! Also, thank you for the thoughts…also made me go hmmm 🙂
You’re very welcome. Sometimes it’s really good for us to go hmmm…
I loved this post April! It’s so true and it made me laugh. I am perpetually busy – yet the busier I am, the less productive I seem to become. You’ve certainly given me something to think about, lady. Maybe I need a maid… (only joking!)
Oh men…and their silly ideas. 😉 I’m glad it made you laugh! Now…go do something you LOVE! Right now!
I think some people confuse running a home with being on holiday – it is no holiday being at home! I love the look of your doughnuts – so pretty with the icing and sprinkles. And your wreath is gorgeous. You are so creative and I’m glad you’re finding time to pursue the things you love xx
Well, I have worked in the past and I would have to say that running a home is definitely a welcome holiday from office politics and the stress that goes along with working for someone else. But you’re right, running a home is not a real holiday like some people would like to think…even my husband apparently. 😉
In this wonderful looking Chocolate doughnuts you use instant coffee is that necessary? I don’t like the taste and off caffeine due to issues?
Hi Melissa and thank you for stopping by! Yes, you absolutely can leave the coffee out. Coffee is often used with chocolate because it enhances the flavor of the chocolate. I don’t do well with coffee either, so I use the decaf granules, but you can easily leave them out. 🙂
There are those, April, for whom no amount of work performed in the home will ever equal that of the gainfully employed. And you know what? That’s their problem. You could solve the problem of nuclear fusion while at home and some would still question you. “But what have you done today?” To be sure, one must do what one must on a daily/weekly basis. Just be sure that some of what you “must do” is to pursue something(s) that you enjoy. “All work and no play …” isn’t only true for the time card set.
These doughnuts, by the way, look incredible! I’ll be sending this link out to some friends — after I pin it, of course, Thanks!
Don’t you worry about me! From now on I’m making time for play and the things I love to do. I love being a “stay at homer”, but like anyone else in my position or in a career, we sometimes have to take a look at things and make some adjustments.
The doughnuts got two thumbs up from Tony last night. They also freeze very well. If we’re going to have a few I just take them out of the freezer and let them rest on the counter until thawed. Open the ziplock though so they don’t become too moist. I think I’m going to omit the chocolate and see if an almond glazed cake doughnut will work. One can never have too many doughnuts. 😉
Our work never stops no matter where we are, at home or at “work”… For me it’s essential to find those moments when I can get creative and do things I love, even if the house is not perfectly clean or the laundry is not done.
Your doughnuts look fantastic, i love all the photos and your craft project are BeautifuL and they inspire me to start a project on my own! 🙂
Have a great weekend April!
Thank you Sibella, I hope you have a wonderful weekend as well. 🙂
