Baked Vanilla Donuts with Mocha Glaze

Since the temps have dropped here in New England I've been baking up a storm! This weekend's craving was for donuts, so I searched my Pinterest boards and these Baked Vanilla Donuts with Mocha Glaze caught my eye. 

Disclaimer:  I received product from Nielsen-Massey for use in this recipe.   All opinions are my own.


I own 2 full size donut pans so I doubled the recipe and made a dozen so there were some to share.   I loaded the mixture into a pastry bag to make filling the pans super easy.  

The base donut is absolutely delicious, but the mocha glaze puts it over the top!  I sprinkled them with some mini chocolate chips, but some chocolate covered coffee beans would be awesome too.

authorHello, my name is Cherine, but you can call me "Chicho" :) I am Lebanese and I live in Paris. Welcome to my internet kitchen, grab a cup of coffee, a macaron and get comfy! This blog is my recipe journal. It's where I write about the recipes that intersect my everyday life. Often the recipes are from my cookbook collection, my magazines, my favorite blogs... sometimes not, they might come from my mother, a friend, a neighbour... or I might write about a recipe I invented myself.
