Chocolate Glazed Baked Donuts

Recently I made and brought 25 of these chocolate glazed baked donuts to bring to share with Evy's classmates and teacher.  The teacher would do a little something special for the birthday boy or birthday girl and asked the students to sing the birthday song.  Evy wanted to share some treat with her classmates and wanted me to bake something.  I thought of this baked donuts because it was healthier for the kids, mainly made of yogurt.  I added the chocolate glazed and sprinkles because the kids loved them, looked like a donut yeah?

See my other baked donuts recipes:  Baked Raisin DonutsGreen Tea Baked Donuts, Assorted Baked Donuts, Healthy Baked Donuts.

I double the recipe below and made about 28-30 donuts.



  • 1 cup all purpose flour
  • 1/3 cup white granulated sugar
  • 3/4 tsp. baking powder
  • 3/4 tsp. baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp. salt


  • 1 large egg
  • 1 tub (6oz/170g) vanilla flavored yogurt
  • 1 Tbsp. milk
    1 Tbsp. canola oil/olive oil

  • 3/4 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips (for glazing)
  • Colors sprinkles as needed


1. In a big glass bowl, combine (A). Whisk thoroughly with a whisk.

2. In the center, add (B). Whisk until combine.  Use a spoon and fill the greased donuts pan, about half full.

3. Bake at preheated 400'F oven for 10 minutes. Remove with a toothpick and let cool completely on wire rack.  

4.  Melt the chocolate chips in a plate in the microwave.  Dip the cooled donut with the melted chocolate and quickly sprinkle the colors sprinkles on top.  Set it on a wire rack 1 inch apart for the chocolate to harden. 

5.  Store in air-tight container.

*Yields 12-15 healthy
baked donuts*

I've never made baked donuts before! This recipe looks easy and healthy. I'm going to try it out as soon as I buy a donut pan.

I was all set about baking this delicious donuts that I have been wanting to bake for so long ... then I saw the word - donut pan. Don't think I can get a donut pan in France. LOL! I'll see if I can get one from UK.Hub & V loves donut.

Is the texture and tastes similar to the deep fried donuts?

SIG said...

Most definitely look like donuts! Happy birthday Evy!

noobcook said...

Crystal said...

These look really great! I like how they are baked and not fried.

Do you have a special pan to make the donuts? Like a mold?

Sook said...

Little Corner of Mine said...

Thanks F4T. :)

Yes Jasmine, you need a donuts tray/pan for this. I got mine years ago.

Thanks Mary, Evy said they thanks her for the donuts.

Yes Belinda, who can resist a donut? ;)

Kirbie, yes go buy a donut pan and try it, it's my keeper recipe.

Cooking Ninja, the texture and taste are different but it is soft and tastes great. It definitely tastes better than the hard and cakey version of donuts out there.

Thanks SIG. :)

Thanks noobcook, more kids friendly. LOL!

Yes Crystal, you need a donuts pan for this. I posted the picture of the pan in my previous post. You can find the link on this post, I forgot which one, the last two links perhaps.

Thanks Sook. :)

Rita, hope you find it soon. :)

Yes Ju, can't go wrong with chocolate and sprinkles. :P

Sonia, definitely. It's easy to make too.

Haha Tigerfish, yeah lah, but lots of people think baked donuts is not a real donuts mah. HAHAHA...:P

Michael said...

I have made this recipe and it was absolutely a hit among my family. My little kids definitely loved it. I too cant get enough of it, especially when dipped in a hot cup of espresso made from my flavia coffee maker at home. Kudos!

lakshmi said...

hi! thks for ur recepies..can u help me to show pictures step buy step..hw to do donut? i tried but it became hard and tast less..can u help me?

Little Corner of Mine said...

6oz. of yogurt is about 3/4 cup. Sorry no step-by-step picture as this is very simple, just add the dry ingredients in a bowl and then add in all the wet ingredients, blend well and bake. Once the baked donut is done and cool down, you need to keep them in an air-tight container so that it would not dry out (or becomes hard).

Just want to say Thank You for posting this recipe. I've been looking for a good baked donut recipe and I think I've found one.
I have to say that I did replace half the oil with 1/2TBS of applesauce. I know that's not much of a difference but I was curious. The result was still amazing. My whole family loves it.
Also I bought babycakes cake pop machine and this recipe works absolutely beautifully with it.
Thanks again and btw, I wish you could send some malaysian food my way. I miss some SEA food :)

Little Corner of Mine said...

Thank you for your feedback Stitch and I am so glad you all like it. :)
