Mini Chocolate Cake Donuts

Coca-Cola Cake Donuts are rich, chocolaty, baked donuts with a cake-like texture. The delicious icing sets-up nicely and puts the flavor of these donuts over the top! Did we mention they are easy to make too?!

Food blogger Mika Fu shared her own unique recipe for mini chocolate cake Donuts. A baker with a sweet tooth, Fu started The 350-degree Oven to chronicle her own adventures in the kitchen with step-by-step instructions that demonstrate that “everyone can do this.” A big fan of Coca-Cola cake, she decided to experiment while making Donuts one day by substituting Coke for the milk or coffee called for in the original recipe. The result was nothing short of fabulous, she said.

Coca-Cola “adds something special to the cake; it’s a unique flavor,” she said. Not surprisingly, it lends a similar kick to these Donuts and their glaze, she added.



  • 1 1/2 cups flour
  • 1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 eggs
  • 2/3 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/2 cup Coca-Cola®
  • 2 tablespoons canola oil

Chocolate or Mocha Glaze

  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter
  • 2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 3 tablespoons Coca-Cola®
  • 2 cups powdered sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt


  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Sift the flour, cocoa, baking powder and salt in a bowl with a wire whisk. In a separate bowl, mix the egg, sugar, vanilla, Coca-Cola and oil together.
  2. Mix the wet ingredients into the dry, and combine until mixed well.
  3. Transfer the batter into a gallon sized ziplock bag.
  4. Spray a mini doughnut pan with cooking spray for baking.
  5. Bake eight minutes at 325 degrees. Remove from oven and invert onto a wire rack. The donuts should come out easily with a little shake. Wash the pan and dry in between batches. (This is to prevent sticking, and to make sure that the temperature is correct for the second batch). I got about 27 mini donuts total. Allow the donuts to cool.
  6. Meanwhile, melt the butter with the Coke to make the glaze. Pour over the remaining ingredients and whisk to make a glaze. Allow the glaze to set for 30 minutes or so before serving.
  7. Dip the donuts into the warm glaze, allowing the excess to drip off slightly. Then immediately dip in chocolate sprinkles or chopped pecans.
