Straight Forward Strategy to Experiment with Mint Chip Donuts Recipe at Your Kitchen

Mint Chip Donuts Recipe

I enjoy making baked donuts, they are fun and easy to make. The flavour ideas are endless. Some recipes I cut out all the butter, the texture does change. Just be aware if you reduce the fat the texture is chewier. Do not over mix or the donuts will be chewy as well. Use room temperature eggs, so that the donuts do not taste dry. If you are using a dark pan to cook them in set your oven to 325.  All these tips should help you to create a better tasting baked donut.

These can be made as chocolate donuts, or chocolate mint donuts. The icing is mint flavoured; if you love mint then adds it to the batter as well. If you love chocolate donuts, but aren’t the biggest fan of mint. Omit the mint extract and ice them with green colored icing that is vanilla flavoured.

Ingredients:

  • Chocolate Mint Donuts
  • 1 cup flour
  • 2Tablespoons dutch cocoa
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 Tablespoons butter (softened)
  • 1/4 cup buttermilk (I use dry buttermilk with skim milk){I also use dry buttermilk for my red velvet cake}
  • 1/4 cup fat free fage yogurt
  • 1 teaspoon peppermint extract (or vanilla if you would like to make chocolate donuts)
  • 1egg

Direction:

  1. Preheat oven 325
  2. Spray donut pan with baking spray
  3. Mix flour, cocoa, baking powder, baking soda along with sugar nutmeg cinnamon and salt. In a separate bowl combine buttermilk, yogurt, extract and egg. Then mix with dry ingredients until just combined.
  4. Fill donut pan about 1/2 way. I baked 4 large donuts and 12 mini donuts with this recipe. I overfilled some of the mini donuts. I may have been able to bake all 6 large donuts otherwise.
  5. Bake mini donuts for about 8 minutes, large donuts took about 10 minutes. Do not overbake.
