  • 1 ¼ cups Bob's Red Mill 1 to 1 Baking Flour
  • ¼ cup cocoa powder
  • ¼ teaspoon baking soda
  • ¼ teaspoon cream of tartar
  • 1 ½ teaspoon baking powder
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • cup sugar
  • 8 tablespoon unsalted butter melted and cooled
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 2 eggs whites separated
  • 1 cup milk
  • Glaze:
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 2 tablespoon cocoa powder
  • 2-5 tablespoon milk
  • sprinkles


  • Preheat your mini doughnut maker and spray with cooking spray.
  • In a large bowl, whisk together the first seven dry ingredients, flour through sugar.
  • In another small bowl whisk together the melted and cooled butter, vanilla, egg yolks, and milk. Make a well in the center of dry ingredients and pour in. Mix gently.
  • In a separate small bowl whisk the two egg whites for about a minute or two with a fork. You are just trying to get them a bit thicker so they add some fluffiness to the doughnuts.
  • Add egg whites to mixture and stir just until mixed.
  • Transfer mixture to a Ziploc bag and cut the corner tip off. This makes it easy to pipe into the donut maker.
  • Fill each well ½ full without covering the middle section. If you do, your doughnuts won't have a hole.
  • Cook for about 4-6 minutes, according to your donut maker directions.
  • Allow to cool completely before glazing.
  • For the icing simply mix the powdered sugar with the desired amount of milk. More milk will make icing runny so don't add too much at one time.
  • Dip doughnuts in icing and place on a rack to drip dry. Top with sprinkles before the icing sets.
  • If you are using a donut pan, preheat oven to 350° and bake for 8-10 minutes.
