Homemade Double Chocolate Doughnuts are easy to make and contain only 5 ingredients!
Making doughnuts at home is so easy with this 5 ingredient or less recipe. These are perfect for a weekend breakfast or a quick dessert. They are double chocolate, so the reality is that we love them anytime of day!
These are a simple baked cake type doughnut. The ingredient that makes them easy is a chocolate cake mix. It is also an ingredient that is usually a pantry staple. So you can make these doughnuts anytime you need a quick and easy treat.
The recipe calls for a regular chocolate cake mix, but I have also used King Arthur Gluten Free Chocolate Cake Mix and it works great as well. Which makes that a simple 5 ingredient gluten free treat!
If you don’t have a doughnut pan you can also use a mini muffin tin or a regular muffin tin. Just adjust the time to about the same time you would bake a mini or regular muffin.
