Single Serve Chocolate Donuts

So as many of you may already know yesterday was my little girls Birthday! No not my actual child of course, but the girl I get the pleasure of looking after, and pretty much being a mother figure during the time when her parents aren’t there!

A few weeks ago she had her first donut and was in love with it so I figured  as I wanted to make her day as special as possible I would whip up a few donuts of my own. Needless to say I felt pretty proud as she was showing her friends what her au pair sister had prepared for her for “Gouter”. 


I love this recipe because it’s  simple, versatile and doesnt require any eggs which is pretty important here becasue we always run out! 


Serves: 3 Donuts



  • 3 Tbsp whole wheat flour
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tbsp cocoa powder
  • 2 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 1 tbsp sugar
  • 1-2 Tbsp milk


Preheat oven to 350 degrees. 

Combine flour, baking powder, cocoa powder, oil, sugar in a bowl. Slowly add in milk until you have a batter similar to that of a muffin mixture. 

Place in donut moulds (I used silicone and didn’t need to grease them)

Bake for 15-20 mins (it will vary from oven to oven so watch them!)

Remove and let cool and top with icing and sprinkles!


  • 2 squares dark chocolate
  • 1/2 tbsp butter
  • 2 tbsp icing sugar
  • 1 tbsp milk

Place chocolate and butter in microwavable safe bowl and warm for 1-2 miniutes, stopping in between to stir. 

Once melted add in icing sugar followed by milk until you get a frosting texture. 

Top donuts with the icing and sprinkles and allow to harden before serving.
