For the donuts

  • 1 cup flour
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup cocoa powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon espresso powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 egg
  • 6 tablespoons sour cream
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil

For the frosting

  • 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 3 tablespoons milk
  • 1/3 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1/4 cup sprinkles


  • To make the donuts, preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  • In a medium mixing bowl, combine the flour, sugar, cocoa powder, baking soda, and espresso powder.
  • In a small bowl, beat together the vanilla, egg, sour cream, milk, and oil.
  • Stir the wet ingredients into the dry until just combined. Spoon in a greased donut pan.
  • Bake for 8 minutes or until the tops spring back when you touch them. Let the donuts cool in the pan before frosting.
  • To make the frosting, add sugar, butter, and milk to a small saucepan over medium heat and bring to a boil. Boil for exactly 60 seconds and remove from heat.
  • Stir in chocolate chips and continue stirring until the chocolate has melted. Use frosting immediately as it will harden quickly.
  • Dip the tops of the donuts into the frosting and remove to a cooling rack.
  • Immediately top with sprinkles.
  • Let sit for 10 minutes before serving.
