Baked Cinnamon Doughnuts with Chocolate Sauce

Ingredients

    Chocolate Sauce

  • 4 oz (115 g) dark chocolate, chopped
  • 1/2 cup (125 ml) 35% heavy cream

    Cinnamon Doughnuts

  • 1/2 cup (105 g) sugar
  • 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1 cup (150 g) unbleached all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp ground nutmeg
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 2 tbsp unsalted butter, softened
  • 2 tbsp (30 ml) vegetable oil
  • 6 tbsp (80 g) lightly packed brown sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 cup (125 ml) plain yogurt

Preparation

Chocolate Sauce

  1. Place the chocolate in a bowl. Set aside.
  2. In a small saucepan, bring the cream to a boil. Pour over the chocolate and let melt for 1 minute. With a whisk, stir until the sauce is thick and smooth. Set aside.

Cinnamon Doughnuts

  1. With the rack in the middle position, preheat the oven to 425°F (220°C). Generously butter a 12-cavity doughnut pan.
  2. In a bowl, combine the sugar and cinnamon.
  3. In another bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, baking soda, nutmeg and salt.
  4. In a third bowl, cream the butter, oil and brown sugar with an electric mixer. Add the egg and beat until smooth. At low speed or using a wooden spoon, stir in the flour mixture alternately with the yogurt until smooth.
  5. Spoon the batter into a pastry bag fitted with a plain tip. Pipe the batter into each cavity of the pan.
  6. Bake for 7 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the centre of a doughnut comes out clean. Unmould onto a parchment paper-lined wire rack. While still hot, coat with the cinnamon mixture. Return to the rack and let cool.
  7. Serve with the warm chocolate sauce.
