Baked Vanilla Donuts

Super simple vanilla cake donuts dunked in chocolate frosting!

I don't know why, but I tend to forget about how quick homemade donuts are to make. And every time I finally get around to making them, I kick myself for not doing it sooner. Most of the recipes I've tried so far are cake donut style, which is my preference. Once the batter is ready, it's just 8 minutes of cooking time. That's it! Faster than a lot of other breakfast recipes out there for sure. These are super simple and super quick. You have to try them!

What you need:

  • 1 cup all purpose flour
  • 1 tsp. baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 large egg, room temperature
  • 1/4 cup Greek yogurt or sour cream
  • 3 Tbsp. milk
  • 1 Tbsp. unsalted butter, melted
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 3/4 cup prepared chocolate cake frosting


  1. In a bowl, combine flour, baking powder, salt, and granulated sugar.
  2. Add egg, yogurt, milk, butter, and vanilla to dry ingredients and stir until just combined.
  3. Place batter into a piping bag or zipper bag. If using a zipper bag, snip the corner.
  4. Pipe batter into a greased donut pan.
  5. Bake in a preheated 400 degree oven for 8 minutes.
  6. Remove from oven and cool on a baking rack.
  7. Soften the frosting by microwaving in 30 second intervals.
  8. Dunk donuts into the frosting and allow to cool and set.
