Baked Churro Donuts with Dark Chocolate Ganache

Oh my goodness gracious. I don’t think I am ever going to get over these Baked Churro Donuts! And a Dark Chocolate Ganache?! It’s a match made in churro heaven! A fluffy, cinnamon donut dusted in sweet, cinnamon sugar and drizzled with a dark chocolate ganache. Take a bite, close your eyes and savor the moments of eating this treat!

 

Just thinking about these make me giddy. Unfortunately, we ate the last ones last night and are already going through withdrawals from them! I have never been a huge donut person primarily due to the fact that if I was going to eat something that rich and indulgent,  I’d rather have a piece of cake. But, these baked donuts are game changer! Since they’re baked rather than fried, you don’t feel as guilty about eating one or two. You don’t have to worry, though, because these are certainly not lacking in any richness or flavor just because they are baked instead of fried!

 

When I was up in Ann Arbor, Michigan for a food photography workshop earlier this year hosted by Sarah from Broma Bakery, she took us all out to a local restaurant up there called Aventura and they served us some epically good, classic churros with a chocolate dipping sauce and a caramel dipping sauce. I raved all about them to my husband and he was all sorts of jelly about it. Driving in the car the other day it hit me like a sack of potatoes, I needed a churro with a dreamy chocolate sauce. I knew right then and there that I was going to make a churro donut and it is all of my churro dreams come true!

 

Not only are these Baked Churro Donuts scrumptious and delicious, but they come together in a breeze! You don’t have to worry about heating up any oil, frying dough, or making your house smell greasy. You can bake these up for a sweet treat breakfast, a mid-day nibble, or a decadent dessert. Either way, your house will smell sweet and warm from the cinnamon and sugar.

The dark chocolate ganache can be drizzled on top of and coat each donut, or it can be served as a dipping sauce. Either way, it is a must-have! Dark chocolate and cinnamon dance perfectly together.

Description

A fluffy, cinnamon donut dusted in sweet, cinnamon sugar and drizzled with a dark chocolate ganache. Take a bite, close your eyes and savor the moments of eating this treat!


Ingredients

Scale

For the donuts:

  • 2 cups flour
  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 2/3 cups sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 4 tablespoons melted butter, cooled
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract

For the cinnamon sugar coating:

  • 4 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 2/3 cups sugar

For the dark chocolate ganache:

  • 3/4 cup heavy cream
  • 1 cup dark chocolate chips

Instructions

For the donuts:

  1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. In a medium bowl, mix together all of the dry ingredients for the donuts until combined. This mixture will include the flour, cinnamon, sugar, salt and baking powder. In a separate medium bowl, whisk together the wet ingredients for the donuts until combined. This mixture will include the eggs, heavy cream, butter and vanilla.
  2. Slowly combine the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients for the donuts and mix until combined. Using a piping bag or a plastic food storage bag with a corner cut off, pipe the donut batter into a sprayed donut pan, filling each donut 3/4 of the way full. Bake for 15-18 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into a donut comes out clean and the tops start to turn a golden brown. Flip the donuts out on a cooling rack to cool slightly.

For the cinnamon sugar coating:

  1. While the donuts are baking, prepare the cinnamon sugar coating by putting the melted butter on one small plate and the cinnamon and sugar on another small plate. Stir together the cinnamon and sugar to evenly combine. Once the donuts are cool enough to touch, work with one donut at a time to coat. Lightly coat the donut in the melted butter (wherever there is butter the cinnamon sugar will stick!) and then toss in the cinnamon sugar and place back on a cooling rack or plate. Continue until all donuts are coated.

For the dark chocolate ganache:

  1. For the dark chocolate ganache, bring the heavy cream to a very low simmer over low heat in a small saucepan. Whisk in the dark chocolate chips and continue to whisk until smooth and glossy, about a few minutes. Serve the churro donuts with the dark chocolate ganache drizzled over the top or served as a dipping sauce.
