Orange Donuts with Chocolate Glaze

Posted on April 21, 2014 by sweet estelle

A few weeks ago I was at the farmer's market, saw some oranges and instantly thought 'donuts!'. I'm new to donut making but it's easy and they're so yummy. I've made these a few times now and they're good. Depending on how orange-y you like your baked goods, you could probably add zest from a second orange for a little stronger flavor. This recipe will make 6 donuts plus a little extra for a couple more regular sized donuts or a few minis if you have a mini donut pan.


1 cup flour
6 tbsp sugar
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1 egg
1 tbsp butter, melted
6 tbsp milk
Juice of one orange
Zest of one orange

1) Preheat your oven to 400 degrees. Coat your pan with non-stick spray.

2) Combine flour, baking powder, sugar, salt together in a medium bowl and set aside.

3) Whisk together the melted butter, milk, zest of one regular sized orange and juice from the same orange in a small bowl.

4) Add the egg and butter/orange mixture to the flour mixture. Mix to combine but don't over mix.

5) Either spoon or pipe enough batter into your donut pan, making sure each opening is 3/4 full.

6) Bake donuts for 9 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.

7) Cool donuts on rack while making the glaze.

Chocolate Glaze

1/2 cup chocolate chips
2 tbsp butter, melted
1 cup powdered sugar
2 tbsp milk (more if needed)

1) Melt the butter and chocolate chips.

2) Transfer butter and chocolate mixture to a bowl and add the powdered sugar and milk. Mix with a whisk until it's smooth (add more milk if necessary).

3) Dip donuts into glaze and place on the rack to dry (about 15 - 20 minutes if you can wait that long...)
