Prep Recipe

In a large bowl, whisk together flour, sugar, cocoa powder,  baking powder, & salt.

Make Batter

Add egg, milk, melted butter, & vanilla to flour & stir until just combined, taking care not to over-mix.

Make Batter

Fill each cavity in the mini doughnut pan about ¾ of the way with batter. I like to put batter in Ziplock bag with cut off corner.

Fill Pan

Bake for 6-8 mins, until light & springy to the touch. Let cool in pan for a few mins & remove to cool on wire rack. Repeat with remaining batter.

Bake Donuts

Add all ingredients to a medium bowl & stir to combine. If icing is too thick, add additional milk a little at a time.

Make Icing

Dip cooled donuts upside down in icing. Top with sprinkles.
