IntroductionThe Norpro petite donut pan works great for this recipe... I'm sure you could use a mini muffin pan, too. The Norpro petite donut pan works great for this recipe... I'm sure you could use a mini muffin pan, too.
Flour, 1 1/2 cups
Cocoa, dry powder, unsweetened, 2/3 cup
Baking Powder, 1 tsp
Salt, 1/8 tsp
Applesauce, sweetened, 1/2 cup (instead of 2 eggs)
Granulated Sugar, 2/3 cup
Vanilla Extract, 1 tsp
Skim milk, 1/2 cup
Smart Balance Buttery Spread, 2 tbsp (melted)
Combine flour, cocoa, baking powder and salt in a bowl. In a separate bowl, mix applesauce, sugar, and vanilla until thick. Combine milk and Smart Balance in a third bowl. Alternately combine egg mixture and milk mixture with flour mixture and mix until smooth and soft. Spray pan lightly with cooking oil (I like Pam - butter). Fill with batter 2/3 full. Bake 8-9 minutes. Cool. Carefully remove (use a spoon to help get them out if needed.
Makes 24 mini donuts.
To more easily get the batter into the mini donut pans, put the batter in a gallon-size Zliploc bag ... seal the zipper... cut off one of the corners of the bag (no more than 1/4 inch)... use it like a pastry bag and squeeze batter into pan - much easier! And donuts look better, too.
Number of Servings: 24
