My life got so much better once I bought a donut pan. Seriously, homemade donuts are the best and oh-so easy! Although I do enjoy fried yeasted donuts also, I find I get sick of them quickly, especially if they’re oily. If I’m eating a fried donut, it’s DEFINITELY a bombolone, which are Italian yeasted donuts filled with vanilla or chocolate pastry cream. They’re my favorite!
Back to these baked chocolatey babies! These chocolate donuts are vegan and super fluffy. I brought them to a Christmas party last weekend and they were a hit.
If you don’t have a donut pan yet, donut worry (see what I did there)! You can easily use this batter to make mini or standard-sized cupcakes as well.

These donuts are super chocolatey, moist and fluffy! You NEED to make them asap!
