Baked Chocolate Donut Recipe 2 pk Dry yeast 1/4 cup warm water 1 1/2 cup lukewarm milk (scalded and cooled) 1/2 cup sugar 1 tsp salt 1/2 cup good quality cocoa 1/3 cup shortening 4 1/2 cup flour 1/4 cup butter (about) 2 eggs Dissolve the yeast in warm water. Blend in the milk, sugar, salt, cocoa, eggs, shortening and two cups of flour. Blend at half minute on low speed. Be sure to scrape down the sides of the mixer bowl often, then beat two more minutes with the mixer set on medium. Cover and rise until it is twice the size. This takes an hour, give or take. Cover a board with cloth, flour it, and turn out the soft and sticky dough. Cover the rolling pin with cloth, flower it and roll the dough until it is half an inch thick. Cut with a 2 1/2 inch donut cutter. Lift the donuts and place on a greased baking sheet, or in a donut pan. Brush your donut recipe with melted butter. Cover and let them rise for about twenty minutes. They should double in bulk again. Preheat the oven to 425°. Bake for about ten minutes. The donuts will be golden when done. Brush with melted butter. Then After baking, shake them in icing sugar or spread a chocolate glaze over top.
