Baked Chocolate Doughnuts

I have always wanted a donut pan.  I pictured myself making those delicious pumpkin cake donuts with the sugary topping.  I thought we'd immediately disavow ourselves of commercially-prepared donuts, scoffing at the hordes of people at Dunkin Donuts every morning. 

The reality?  I don't think we're ready to take over the title of best donut ever. 

I found a donut pan at Target one of the times I shopped there this summer [and spent $100, even though I had two things on my list].  It's been sitting on my counter waiting to be filled.  I found a recipe for a chocolate cake donut a few days ago and finally tried it just now.  Totally disappointing. 

I should have known better.  The past few times I've tried to add yogurt to baked goods, the results have been rubbery.  Blech. 

I'm going to keep trying - I'll keep you posted if I find a winner!


  1. I'm sorry they didnt work out. They still look very doughnut like though.

    I dont think Ive ever seen a doughnut pan down under!

  2. They look ok so it's unfortunate they didn't taste so great.
    I've never seen a donut pan here either. I'm starting to feel like I live in a third world country, lol.

  3. Oh man! I was thinking about a donut maker when I bought my popcorn maker last week. I hope you try try again and find a great recipe because that is something I'd totally try.
