1/2cupboiling hot water
1tsp baking powder
a pinch of salt
1/4cupoilI prefer coconut oil
1/2cupDairy free chocolate or Dark chocolate (70%)melted
Preheat your oven to 180C. Grease the cavities of your 12 cup mini donut pan well.
In a small bowl, combine the cocoa powder and boiling hot water very well. Keep aside till it cools to room temperature.
In another bowl, combine all the dry ingredients - flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt.
Whisk the sugar with the egg. Pour in the oil and vanilla extract. Fold in the flour mixture until just combined. Then add in the cocoa mixture. Mix well gently.
Spoon in the batter, filling upto two thirds of each cavity. Bake for 8-10 minutes or until a toothpick inserted towards the center, comes out with moist crumbs attached. Do not overbake, these WILL dry out really fast.
Carefully turn them out and repeat with the rest of the batter.
Let cool completely and then dip in melted chocolate. Let set for a few moments, and enjoy!
These store very well in an airtight container in the refrigerator.
