Chocolate Hazelnut Doughnuts Instructions

Preparing the Doughnuts

  1. Begin by preheating your oven to 350 degrees and lightly greasing a donut baking pan with cooking spray.
  2. In a large bowl, mix together the melted butter, eggs, sour cream, and vanilla extract.
  3. In a separate bowl, blend the flour, cocoa powder, brown sugar, espresso powder, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.
  4. Gradually combine the wet ingredients with the dry ingredients, ensuring a thorough mix. The batter will be thick.
  5. Transfer the batter into a piping bag or a quart-sized plastic bag with the end snipped off.
  6. Pipe the mixture into the wells of the donut pan, filling each about ¾ full.
  7. Bake for about 10 minutes or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean. Repeat with the remaining batter. Allow the doughnuts to cool.

Glazing the Doughnuts

  1. Whisk together all the glaze ingredients. Adjust the consistency with additional milk if needed.
  2. Dip the cooled doughnuts in the glaze and allow to set.
  3. Optionally, sprinkle with chopped toasted hazelnuts for an extra crunch.
