This is a donut recipe for a donut maker such as the Baby Cake brand or the Dash brand. You can try making them in the oven but I have not made these in the oven so I do not know how long you would need to bake them for or how they would turn out.

  • 5 tbsp margarine, softened
  • 1/2 c white sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 c milk
  • 1 c white flour
  • 1/2 c cocoa
  • pinch of salt

How to make Chocolate Mini Donuts

These are really easy to make. Cream together the egg, margarine, and sugar.

Add in baking powder and vanilla.

Mix in the flour, cocoa, and milk.

To make this as easy as possible I use a Ziploc bag, and pour/scrap my batter into it. I am going to use it as a piping bag. This makes it easier to fill my Bella mini donut maker without making a mess, without trying to figure out how to get the batter into each space.

Making Mini donuts

They only take about 2 minutes to bake through. these are light, fluffy mini chocolate donuts. to make these 40 mini donuts, it only takes about 12 minutes.

I use a large spoon, like a soup spoon, to swipe my doughnuts out of the doughnut maker to save me from burning my fingers and from squishing them. This has been the best method I have found for removing them from the donut maker.
