This recipe will work with either the regular-size donut pan¬†or the mini-donut pan by Wilton. All you need to do is adjust the baking times, which are listed below.

1/2 c. buttermilk
1/2 c. + 2 tbsp. canola oil
1 egg
3/4 c. sugar
1 tsp. cocoa powder
1 tbsp. red food coloring
1/2 tsp. vanilla
1/2 tsp. vinegar
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1 1/4 c. AP flour

Prepare donut pans by spraying with Bak-klene. Combine ingredients in a bowl using a whisk, then place batter into a 12″-16″ piping bag – snip off tip and pipe a ring around each well of donut pan, making sure to not pipe more than half full. Bake donuts in a 350 degree, preheated oven – mini donuts for 5-7 minutes, large donuts for 10-12 minutes. Eat donuts right away, I don’t find baked donuts hold over very well to the next day.
