  1. 1 cup all-purpose flour
  2. 1/2 cup cocoa powder
  3. 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  4. 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  5. 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  6. 1/4 teaspoon salt
  7. 1/2 cup buttermilk
  8. 1/4 cup vegetable oil
  9. 1 large egg

  11. 1/2 cup boiling water
  12. 1/2 cup powdered sugar
  13. 1 tablespoon maraschino cherry juice

Processing Steps

  1. Step 1: Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C) and grease a doughnut pan.
  2. Step 2: In a mixing bowl, whisk together the flour, cocoa powder, granulated sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.
  3. Step 3: In a separate bowl, combine the buttermilk, vegetable oil, egg, and vanilla extract. Mix well.
  4. Step 4: Gradually add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients, mixing until just combined. Stir in the boiling water until the batter is smooth.
  5. Step 5: Pour the batter into the prepared doughnut pan, filling each cavity about 2/3 full. Bake for 12-15 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the doughnuts comes out clean.
  6. Step 6: In a small bowl, whisk together the powdered sugar and cherry juice until smooth.
  7. Step 7: Once the doughnuts have cooled, dip the tops into the cherry glaze and garnish with a maraschino cherry.

Tips and Recommendations

For best results, make sure your ingredients are at room temperature before starting the recipe. This will help the doughnuts bake evenly and achieve a fluffy texture.

If you don't have a doughnut pan, you can use a muffin tin instead. Simply shape small balls of dough and place them into the greased muffin tin, then bake as directed.

To make the glaze extra special, you can add a splash of almond extract to enhance the cherry flavor.

These Black Forest doughnuts are best enjoyed fresh, but you can store any leftovers in an airtight container for up to 2 days.
