Donut Holes

  • 1 cup all purpose flour *125g or fluffed, spooned & leveled
  • 1 cup whole wheat flour *125g or fluffed, spooned & leveled
  • ½ cup cocoa powder
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • ½ cup Guinness or other stout
  • ½ cup milk any % or almond milk can be used
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • ¼ cup greek yogurt
  • 2 tablespoons butter melted


  • 1 cup powdered sugar 125g
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 2 tablespoons Guinness or other stout


Donut Holes

  • Pre-heat oven to 350 F.
  • Combine all dry ingredients in a large bowl. Combine all wet ingredients in a separate bowl; whisk until smooth. Add wet ingredients to dry and stir until just combined (do not over-mix).
  • Spray mini muffin pan with spray oil. Fill each hole to ⅔ - ¾ full. Bake for 8-12 minutes until a toothpick comes out clean. Cool 5-10 minutes in pan, then transfer to a wire rack to finish cooling.


  • Combine all glaze ingredients in a medium bowl; beat until completely combined
  • To glaze, you can either dunk the tops or completely submerge. You will need to repeat the glazing process a few times if you completely submerge.


If you want to completely glaze your donut holes (not just the tops) you will need to double the glaze.
These can easily be converted into cupcakes or regular sized donuts, but you will need to alter the baking time.
