Easy to make Chocolate Coffee Donuts with Vanilla Chocolate Chip Frosting! This donut recipe is a family favorite! Everyone thinks they’re delicious!
I have to tell you something. I made these Chocolate Coffee Donuts to take to work to share with everyone, but instead I kept them at home because I wanted to eat them all. And I did, I ate them all, and I didn’t regret it one bit.
Chocolate Coffee Donuts
These donuts are the best of all worlds, moist chocolate donuts, vanilla frosting that sticks perfectly to the donuts, mini chocolate chips on top, and the sublte taste of coffee. What gives the donuts a special taste is that I used 1 tablespoon of Folgers instant coffee granules in the batter. Use 1-2 tablespoons depending on how “coffee” you want it to taste. I love how simple Instant coffee is to use in recipes!
These are perfect breakfast or brunch donuts to serve alongside a nice cup of coffee. They also make a great dessert. I love that you can get a small dose of your caffeine fix in, while eating a donut!
