Chocolate Donuts with Browned butter glaze


Total Time: 35 min
Prep:  20 min
Cook: 15 min

Yield:  about 1 dozen doughnuts 


  • Vegetable oil for Deep frying
  • 2 cups all purpose flour(maida) , plus more for dusting
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2  cup thick curd
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 1 large egg

Browned Butter Glaze    

  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 2 cup powdered sugar
  • 3/4 teaspoon vanilla
  • 2-3 tablespoon milk


  1. In a large Sauce pan pour the oil to a depth of approximately 2 inches, heat oil for deep frying the donuts
  2. In a large bowl, combine all the dry ingredients -  the flour, sugar, cocoa, baking powder, baking soda, and salt
  3. In a separate small bowl, whisk together the curd, milk, and egg. Add half of the wet mixture the flour mixture, stirring to combine. add rest of the wet mixture one tablespoon at a time until the dough is well combined and not sticky anymore
  4. Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured surface. Roll to 3/4-inch thickness. Using a 3-inch round cutter, cut out the doughnuts. Using a 1-inch round cutter, cut out the center of each doughnut. I used two different size bottle caps for cutting out the doughnuts
  5. Fry the doughnuts in hot oil , in batches, for 1 minute per side. Drain on paper towels
For the Glaze :
  1. In a small sauce pan take 1/4 cup of butter and melt butter over medium high heat, As it reaches a medium brown color, remove the pan from heat
  2. Whisk in 1 cup powdered sugar to the browned butter, then add 1 Tablespoon milk as it thickens; Now add one more cup of sugar and 1 more tablespoon of milk as necessary so it’s thick enough to stay on top of donuts.
  3. Add clear vanilla extract, whisk until smooth
  4. Drizzle hot over the top of donuts
  5. This glaze sets very fast, so work quickly and apply over the donuts
