Easy Baked Sugar-free Chocolate Cake Donuts

 


Mom loved Krispy Kreme donuts, 

so did my boss at work.  

I didn’t get it ~ seemed to me ~ might as well 
eat a cup of sugar.



Even mini chocolate chip calories can add up quickly.  Recently, I was happy to discover Lily’s chocolate chips, a mere 50 calories per tablespoon.




They’re delicious chocolate chips, they’re sugar-free ~ you won’t be mistaking them for Girardelli’s or Hershey’s, but they are good, natural sweeteners, with that rich deep chocolate taste, and no bitterness. Health food stores sell Lily’s, as well as Whole Foods, and of course, Amazon. 

I used Serve brown sugar in the dough, and confectioner’s sugar, mixed with water, and vanilla for the glaze.  The  taste of the glaze was OK, but I'd prefer a simple dusting of confectioner’s sugar the next time.

Deep-frying donuts or anything for that matter, is not my thing.  I just never got the hang of it, food was either under-cooked as in chicken, or grease-laden, not to mention the nasty messy greasy clean-up.  

Baked donuts aren't the norm, and I’m not saying these have the same texture as the deep-fried version; nonetheless, these baked chocolate donuts are a tasty alternative, they will curb your sweet tooth, and they’re definitely easy to make.


Before...
Voila!

So... here’s to my second attempt at baking donuts ~ if you're like me, you can't resist cake donuts ~ these chocolate gems are packed with flavor, and fewer calories!

Eat one of these donuts, and you can have your chocolate, and eat it too, guilt free!

  1. Hi Pam, I've always liked cake style donuts and your chocolate chip version looks great. Given the Covid-19 situation my wife and I have started self isolation and one of our challenges is keeping our menu interesting. It does require some thought. Today is Day 3 for us... Take Care, Big Daddy Dave

  5. I could definitely eat a chocolate donut right now, but I'm not going out for the time being.

    The spammers are busy these days -- looks like you have one who posted here. They usually write nonsense in broken English.

  8. I haven't eaten a real donut in many years since I became gluten free. But I do remember they tasted mighty fine! I love the idea of your lower sugar version.. thanks and have a good week.

  9. Pam, I'm with you as I never got the Krispy Kreme thing either. I just started playing with sugar-free and reduced sugar baking. Don't have a donuts pan, just might have to see if I can find one of those. And, I've yet to find an American type chocolate chip, but we've got some good dark chocolate that's mostly chocolate and low in sugar. So this one is calling my name.

  11. I'm a doughnut fan, but try to save my treats for really good ones. I've got a plan to get a doughnut at my favorite New York place when I can ride the subway again. May get some Lily's chips in the meantime. One of the local stores usually carries them. Take care!
