i have been planning to post this donut recipe since long time and perhaps one of the most requested recipe from my viewers. i was thinking to share this recipe since long time and i was getting distracted with some other recipes and priorities. also i wanted to share a simple donut recipe with different glazed donuts, however in this post i have used only chocolate glaze. i personally like the chocolate sauce dipped donuts, but i do like the cinnamon and sugar icing coated donuts too.

chocolate donut recipefurthermore, some important tips and suggestions for a perfect and moist donut recipe. firstly, i have added baking powder with yeast while kneading the dough. baking powder helps the donuts to raise while deep frying, however it is optional if you are baking it in oven. secondly, the dough has to be rested properly in a warm place to ferment it properly and to bulge or swell. lastly, i highly recommend to fry these eggless chocolate doughnuts in a low to medium flame. it has to turn golden brown in colour and should be removed before it turns crisp.

finally i would like to highlight my other international recipes collection with this post of chocolate donut recipe. it mainly includes, black forest cake, chocolate cake, choco lava cake, sponge cake, vanilla cake, ice cream cake, banana bread, veg pizza, veg macaroni and french fries recipe. in addition do visit my other recipes collection like,
