Chocolate Peanut Butter Donut/Doughnut Recipe

Reese’s lovers, this one is for you!  If you like peanut butter, which I think applies to anyone who isn’t allergic to it, then you’ll like this recipe!  This sweet and peanut-buttery glaze on top of a basic chocolate donut is the perfect combination.  My favorite thing about this donut is that you can top it with anyone you want, from coconut, to chocolate flakes, from more nuts, to chocolate drizzle.  Enjoy this one however YOU want!

Ingredients Needed:

  • 1 cup of flour (I prefer whole wheat)
  • 1/4 cup of cocoa powder
  • 1/2 tsp of baking soda
  • 1/8 tsp of salt
  • 1/2 cup of buttermilk
  • 1/2 cup of sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 tbsp of butter
  • 1 tsp of vanilla
  • 3 tbsp peanut butter
  • 1/4 cup confectioners sugar
  • 1 tbsp milk

Directions:

Donut

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and grease donut pan
  2. In a large bowl, mix together:
    • 1 cup of flour (I prefer whole wheat)
    • 1/4 cup of cocoa powder
    • 1/2 tsp of baking soda
    • 1/8 tsp of salt
  3. In a separate bowl, mix together:
    • 1/2 cup of buttermilk
    • 1/2 cup of sugar
    • 1 large egg
    • 2 tbsp of butter
    • 1 tsp of vanilla
  4. Add wet ingredients to dry ingredients and mix until just combined.  Don’t overmix!
  5. Fill donut pan (see here for tip on best way to do this!)
  6. Bake for 8-10 minutes or until donuts bounce back when touched
  7. Let cool before glazing

Peanut Butter Glaze

  1. In a shallow bowl that can be used to dunk the donut tops, whisk together:
    • 3 tbsp peanut butter
    • 1/4 cup confectioners sugar
    • 1 tbsp milk
  2. Dip the tops of the donuts in the glaze
  3. I topped the donuts with chopped dark chocolate, but you can top with whatever you want!

Note: For the glaze, you can mix and match the ingredients in any amount to get the consistency you want.  If you want to drizzle, add more milk, if you want to dip or frost, add more powdered sugar and peanut butter!
