Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 175C/350F. Coat a 12-count donut pan with cooking spray and set aside.

  • Spoon out dough amongst the donut pan. Lightly wet your hands and shape into the donut cavities. Do not overfill. 
  • Bake for 12-17 minutes, or until just done, and a skewer comes out just clean. Allow to cool in the pan for 5 minutes, before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely. Once cool, dip the donuts in the melted chocolate.

  • Divide the mixture amongst the donut pan, and fill each cavity until 2/3 full. Bake for 12-15 minutes, or until a skewer comes out clean. 
  • Allow cooling in the donut pan for 5 minutes, before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely. Once set, dip in the melted chocolate. 

For the chocolate frosting
