These double chocolate donut holes are sweet and tender. The best part is they are baked, not fried!


  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 Large egg (beaten)
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/4 cup sour cream
  • 2 tablespoons baking cocoa
  • 1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips (melted)
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 dash cinnamon
  • 3/4 cups all-pupose flour
  • 1/4 cup hot water


This recipe for baked double chocolate donut holes depends on the use of a Babycakes maker.   You may use a Cake Pops or doughnut pan but baking times will be different.  No deep frying is required.


Step 1
Place all ingredients in a large mixing bowl; except flour and water. Blend completely.
Step 2
Add flour and water and mix until all ingredients are combined.
Step 3
Prepare Babycakes maker and bake according to instructions.

I finished my donut holes off by dipping them in melted chocolate and then rolling them in sprinkle – yum!  Other alternatives are to roll them in powdered sugar or dip them in a glaze.

    These look like an overeating session in the making! I have a mini doughnut pan that I’ve used once and wasn’t that impressed with it. I also have a cake pops pan that would be the best to use. The recipe is pretty simple and straightforward, thanks for making it so,
