Keto Cake Donuts Ingredients
Chocolate Glaze Ingredients
Keto Chocolate Glazed Donuts Directions
Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Spray a donut pan with cooking oil.
Add all the dry ingredients for the keto cake donut to a medium bowl. Mix until combined.
Add in wet ingredients. Mix until combined. If dough is crumbly, add a splash more of water.
Press the donut
Grab a handful of dough and press it into a donut pan. Add enough dough to reach almost the top of the rim. These donuts don't rise much.
Bake at 325 degrees Fahrenheit for 10 minutes or until the donuts are set and lightly brown around the edges. You also have the option to fry these donuts. Add lard or your favorite cooking oil into a small non-stick skillet. Heat to medium heat. Add donuts and fry on each side until golden brown.
Let cool completely in the donut baking tray then transfer to a wire rack.
Once donuts have cooled, melt chocolate and coconut oil in a flat bowl. To melt sugar-free chocolate, microwave at 30 second intervals, stirring in between until chocolate is melted. You can also melt your chocolate using a double boiler if you don't want to use a microwave. For a pink chocolate glaze, use sugar-free white chocolate and add a couple drops of red food coloring to it.
Dip the donut
Dip the top of your donut into the melted chocolate and top with sugar-free sprinkles right away. Set back on a wire rack to cool the chocolate.
