Chocolate Donut Cake

  • 1 hr & 5 mins
  • Easy



  1. Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Grease and flour a donut cake pan or bundt pan.
  2. In a large bowl, sift together the flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.
  3. In another bowl, whisk together the eggs, granulated sugar, brown sugar, vegetable oil, and vanilla extract until well combined.
  4. Gradually add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients, alternating with the buttermilk, beginning and ending with the dry ingredients. Mix until just combined.
  5. Slowly pour in the hot water and mix until the batter is smooth. Be careful as the batter will be thin.
  6. Pour the batter into the prepared pan and smooth the top with a spatula.
  7. Bake in the preheated oven for 35-40 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
  8. Allow the cake to cool in the pan for about 10 minutes, then remove it from the pan and transfer it to a wire rack to cool completely.
  9. While the cake is cooling, make the glaze. In a small saucepan, heat the heavy cream until it begins to simmer. Remove from heat and pour over the chocolate chips. Let it sit for a minute, then stir until smooth.
  10. Once the cake has cooled, drizzle the chocolate glaze over the top of the cake. Add sprinkles or other toppings if desired.
  11. Allow the glaze to set before serving. Enjoy your chocolate donut cake!
