Neapolitan Donuts

Neapolitan Donuts are baked chocolate donuts with a strawberry glaze and white chocolate drizzle. Ready in 30 minutes!

Prep time: 15 MINUTES

Cook time: 12 MINUTES

Total time: 27 MINUTES

Ingredients:

FOR THE DONUTS:
  •  2 cup all-purpose flour
  •  3/4 cup granulated sugar
  •  1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  •  1 tsp baking powder
  • 2 large eggs
  •  1 tsp baking soda
  •  1 tsp kosher salt
  •  3/4 cup plus 2 Tbsp milk
  •   1 tsp vanilla extract
  •  2 Tbsp unsalted butter, melted

_________________________________________________________________

FOR THE FROSTING:
  •  2 Tbsp heavy cream
  •  2 Tbsp milk
  •  1/4 cup unsalted butter
  •  1 tsp vanilla extract
  •  2 tsp strawberry gelatin powder (not sugar-free)
  •  4 oz white chocolate bar (I use Ghirardelli), divided
  •  1 1/2- 2 cup powdered sugar
  •  sprinkles, optional

 

Instructions:

 

FOR THE DONUTS:

  1. In a large mixing bowl, combine dry ingredients. Add eggs, milk, vanilla and melted butter. Beat for several minutes until well blended.
  2. Spray a donut pan with baking spray. Fill each donut cavity about 3/4 full (I use a large Ziploc bag and snip off the corner to do this neatly). Makes about 10 donuts.
  3. Bake in a 325-degree oven for 10-12 minutes. Allow to cool slightly and remove from pan onto a wire rack.

FOR THE FROSTING:

  1. While the donuts are baking, make the frosting. In a small saucepan on medium-low heat, combine the cream, milk, butter, vanilla, and gelatin powder. Heat until butter is completely melted. Turn heat to low. Add in 3oz of the white chocolate. Stir constantly until the white chocolate is melted and blended. Remove from heat.

  2. Add powdered sugar 1/2 cup at a time, whisking between each addition until desired consistency (using the 1 1/2 -2 cup as a guide).

  3. Dip cooled donuts into strawberry frosting and place on parchment paper. Melt remaining 1 oz white chocolate in a small bowl for 30-45 seconds in the microwave (stirring once halfway through). Place white chocolate in a small Ziploc bag and snip off the corner. Drizzle over strawberry frosting and add sprinkles immediately.

 

ENJOY!
