Powdered Chocolate Mini Donuts!



                                                                         

2 Cups Flour
1/2 Cup Cocoa
1/3 Cup Sugar
1/4 TSP Salt
3/4 TSP Baking Soda dissolved in 1/2 Cup Buttermilk
4 TBS Melted Butter
1 Beaten Large Egg
1 TSP Vanilla
1 Cup Plain Yogurt
Powdered Sugar for coating donuts! About 2 Cups give or take!
                                                                           
Stir all dry ingredients  together except the baking soda. Add the wet & stir well until combined. Dough will be thick. Spray a 12 well donut pan OR a 12 well cupcake pan, you will have holeless donuts & there is NOTHING WRONG with that ! Spoon about 3 heaping teaspoons of dough into each well. You will end up with exactly 12 donuts. Now you are thinking THESE ARE NOT MINI DONUTS! Well compared to my other 6 donut recipes , THESE ARE MINI'S ! Bake in a 325 Degree oven for about 15 to 18 minutes until donuts spring back to the touch & a toothpick inserted comes out clean. Let cool for 3 minutes in the pan , then dump out & let them cool completely. Put powdered sugar into a large plastic bag OR a large bowl. Put one donut at a time into the sugar & shake the bag or turn the donut over in the bowl to coat completely. SERVE !

For Variety:
Stir in 1/2 Cup Chocolate Chips or
Stir in 1/2 Cup Coconut or
Stir in 1/2 Cup Chopped Nuts or
Stir in 1/2 Cup Mini baking M&Ms
I really does not matter what you would like to add to the batter for stir ins. I have come to the conclusion that you could add just about anything you like to a cake, cookie or donut batter & the results would be wonderful! So be creative as you like but watch adding anything wet as it could change the dough to much for proper baking.
