Ingredients

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • ½ cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 2 tablespoons instant espresso powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 ½ cups packed brown sugar
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1/3 cup vegetable oil
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
    Espresso Glaze
  • 1 teaspoon instant espresso powder
  • 1 tablespoon hot water
  • 3 ounces cream cheese, melted
  • 1 ¼ cups confectioners sugar
  • 2 tablespoons milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract



Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 325°F.
  2. In a large bowl, combine flour, cocoa powder, espresso powder, baking soda, and salt.
  3. Add brown sugar, milk, oil, and vanilla extract to bowl with eggs. Whisk until smooth.
  4. Pour liquid ingredients into larger bowl with flour and whisk until fully incorporated.
  5. Measure out scant ¼ cup of batter and carefully pour into greased doughnut pan. Bake at 325°F until lightly browned and doughnuts spring back when touched, about 12 to 15 minutes.
  6. Remove from oven and let cool inside pan for 3 minutes. Remove from pan and cool on wire rack. Grease pan again and repeat until all of the batter has been used.
    Espresso Glaze
  1. In a small bowl, whisk espresso powder and hot water until dissolved.
  2. Melt cream cheese in the microwave on high for 1 minute. Add to bowl and whisk until smooth.
  3. Add sugar, vanilla extract, and milk. Whisk until combined. If the glaze seems too thin, add more sugar. If too thick, add more milk.
  4. Dip cooled doughnuts into bowl of glaze to completely coat one side. Let excess glaze drip off and place on a piece of aluminum foil or wax paper to let glaze set.
