Baked into golden rounds, these chocolate frosted donuts are a must-try. They’re baked with a hint of nutmeg to taste just like the ones from the bakery!

  • ¼tspground nutmeg
  • 1large egg

For the Chocolate Glazed:

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Spray a donut pan with non-stick spray. Set aside.

  2. Whisk the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and nutmeg together in a medium bowl. Set aside.

  3. Whisk the egg, brown sugar, milk, and yogurt together until smooth. Add the melted butter and vanilla, whisking until fully combined.

  4.  Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and stir until just combined. Do not overmix. The batter will be very thick.

  5. Spoon the batter into the donut cavities or use a zipped-top bag. Cut a corner off the bottom of the bag and pipe the batter into each donut cup, filling ⅔ to ¾ of the way full.

  6. Bake for 9 to 10 minutes or until the edges are lightly browned. Remove from the pan and bake the remaining donut batter.

  7. Allow the donuts to cool slightly before glazing.

Chocolate Glaze:

  1. Place the chocolate chips, butter, corn syrup, and water in a medium bowl. Melt in 20-second increments in the microwave, stirring after each time, until completely melted and smooth.

  2. Dip the tops of the donuts into the chocolate glaze and then cover with sprinkles.

  3. Donuts taste best eaten the same day, though they may be covered tightly and stored at room temperature for 2 days.
