Its donut day!!!!!  My daughter is as obsessed with the baked donuts as I am and is helping decide what flavors to make next.  So at her request I made Chocolate Coconut donuts.

 

 

With both cocoa and baking chocolate the donuts are delectably chocolate.  The coconut adds both texture and flavor to the donuts.  Icing seemed unnecessary so the donuts are quickly ready to eat.  The batter is really thick and is easier to spoon than pipe into the pans.

2 cups flour
1 tsp salt
2 tsp baking powder
¾ cup granulated sugar
¼ cup cocoa
1 cup shredded coconut
2 tbsp butter, melted
2 eggs
¾ cup low fat vanilla yogurt (I used Stoneyfield Farm Organic)
3 oz unsweetened baking chocolate, melted
1 tsp vanilla extract
¼ cup milk

Preheat oven to 375.
Spray a doughnut pan with cooking spray.

Mix together all dry ingredients: flour, salt, baking powder, granulated sugar, cocoa, and shredded coconut.
Combine wet ingredients: melted butter, eggs, yogurt, melted chocolate, vanilla, and milk.
Add wet ingredients to dry ingredients, mix.

Spoon or pipe batter into pan.
Bake for 12-15 minutes.

Remove from pan and let cool a few minutes on wire rack.

Makes 12 doughnuts

  2. I'm just starting to get past my textural aversion to shredded coconut…I think baking it into a nice chocolate donut is the perfect way to do it! These look amazing!

  3. I love how this doughnut isn't perfect – it's full of lovely little craggily bits you can really sink your teeth into. For some reason, chocolate and coconut doughnuts feels a bit nostalgic to me – couldn't tell you why, but it does make me really want a dozen of those little things. I'll be bookmarking for the future!

  4. I love the combination of coconut and chocolate, and in a homemade donut? I don't know if it could get any better than this! Your daughter has got great taste!
