Directions

 

For the Donuts -

  Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Spray your donut pan with nonstick spray. Stir together flour, sugar, cocoa powder, baking soda and salt. Add oil, vanilla and water and continue to stir until smooth. Pour into donut pan and bake 10-12 minutes.  

For the Frosting -

  In a bowl using a mixer (or by hand is fine too, just takes a bit longer to create the smoothness) mix together powdered sugar and butter until creamed well.   Add milk, cocoa powder and vanilla and continue to mix until creamy and well combined. Once donuts are cool, dip them into the frosting to cover tops. Spreading with a spatula works just as well.   fullsizerender-1   fullsizerender-16
