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


For the donuts:

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • ¾ cup granulated sugar
  • ½ cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • ¾ cup plus 2 Tablespoons milk
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 Tablespoons unsalted butter, melted

For the frosting:

  • 2 Tablespoons heavy cream
  • 2 Tablespoons milk
  • ¼ cup unsalted butter
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 teaspoons strawberry gelatin powder (not sugar free)
  • 4 ounce white chocolate bar (I use Ghirardelli), divided
  • 1 ½ cups powdered sugar
  • sprinkles, optional


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 ¾ 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 3 ounce of the white chocolate. Stir constantly until the white chocolate is melted and blended. Remove from heat.
  2. Add powdered sugar ½ cup at a time, whisking between each addition until desired consistency (using the 1 ½ 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
